Wisbech Hockey Club Mens’ 2nds travel to St. Neots today (Saturday) needing a win to secure their championship.

The 2nds triumphed last weekend 9-1 over Ely 2nds and secured a 100 per cent home record. Two early goals from Hugo Atkins put the home side in front only to be pegged back to 2-1 from a short corner.

The Ely goal however was of little consequence as Gary Freear came on to pull the strings for Wisbech. The home side blitzed the visitors for the remainder of the half.

Freear got two goals, Atkins added two more, Lee Peck and Sam Dunn, from a well worked short corner, made the half time score 8-1.

Wisbech failed to sustain the pressure in the second half. Ely put up a bit more fight and were kept out by some quality keeping from Tom Peggs. A final goal was added in the dying minutes from Atkins, bringing his days tally up to five, from possibly the pass of the season from Peck.
