For the second week in a row, Wisbech were beaten by the team one place below them in the East Hockey Mens League Division 2N.

Wisbech started brightly, but were given a taste of what was to come when a swift Cambridge counter attack left goalkeeper James Sheppard exposed.

Sheppard collided with the university attacker and was lucky to concede only a penalty corner.

Cambridge took the lead midway through the first-half and Wisbech equalised soon after - Joe Melton knocking in the rebound from a Wisbech penalty corner.

Wisbech made the score 2-1 just after half-time via Matt Goodwin after good work on the left by Jordan Trundle.

However, Cambridge began to get a grip on the game, and despite some dogged defending by Nick Osborn and Sheppard, rattled in four goals. Wisbech scored a consolation when a ball struck into the circle took a slight deflection.

On Saturday Wisbech travel away to play Cambridge Nomads.
