WTHC Ladies 3rd 1,

Newmarket Ladies 2nd 3

This was always going to be a hard, physical game against high-flying newly-promoted Newmarket.

For 20 minutes the match battled to and fro until Newmarket netted two quick goals. This just made the Wisbech ladies more determined and fantastic team passing set up a perfect chance for top forward 13-year-old Holly Stevenson to sweep in her 17th goal of the season. In the dying seconds Newmarket managed to break through the solid Wisbech defence.
