Haverhill Ladies 2nd 5, WTHC Ladies 3rd 1

WTHC Ladies faced a very early morning long journey away to league champions Haverhill.

Wisbech, fielding many young players and back-to-hockey ladies, knew this would be their toughest challenge of the season.

The champions fielded an unbelievably strong team which buoyed the Wisbech ladies, making them feel very proud. The first half was dominated by Haverhill, who were made to work for every challenge but they eventually broke through to take a 4-0 lead into the half-time break.

The true grit and team spirit of Wisbech showed as they were determined not to ‘lose’ the second half.

The hard work was rewarded with a great goal from captain Kate Stevenson. The rest of the match was a hard-fought midfield duel with a goal near the end from Haverhill.

A very proud Wisbech have already cemented third place in the league with one match remaining.
