Norwich Dragons 5, Wisbech Ladies 1

Wisbech started this hockey game knowing that it would be tough and relentless and it didn’t disappoint.

From the offset the pace was quick with both sides putting pressure on the other. It was the home side who broke the deadlock first, but Wisbech soon levelled it up with Claire Apted sinking a rebound shot at a short corner.

It looked like the visitors were back in the game but the Dragons struck twice quickly before the half finished.

Wisbech knew that the scoreline could easily change in their favour and started brightly. However the second half didn’t go Wisbech’s way and Norwich grabbed another two goals to finish 5-1.

Wisbech have a break this weekend with no game scheduled.
