Wisbech Men miss vital chances at Broxbourne
Broxbourne 4 Wisbech Men 1
With injury being a factor this week, Wisbech started very well but missed vital chances to take the lead.
The men came flying out the blocks in the second half.
They dominated possession with the midfielders supplying balls to Tom Jupp and Ryan Jackson. Wisbech’s confidence grew until Broxbourne hit Wisbech on the counter attack, putting the game to bed.
The men will hit back against Potters Bar hoping get the win next weekend.
Man of Match: Lewis Jackson.
Wisbech Men’s 3rd 0 Spalding 2’s 7
Wisbech worked hard to keep a very strong Spalding side at bay.
The visitors won a succession of short corners and finally broke the deadlock. The pressure was constant and more goals followed.
Wisbech Men’s 4th 0 St Ives 5’s 0
Josh Watson had a great game at the back and was a contender for man of the match along with Aiden Falcus in goal who kept them in the game in a fantastic performance all round.
MoM: Nick Eggleton.
Wisbech Ladies 4 Ipswich & East Suffolk 0
The whole team moved as a unit and with some sharp passing from Laura Overland to Joey Gomm the ladies were rewarded with a goal from Megan Fey.
Within minutes Overland converted a well taken short corner.
In the second half Ellie Padmore scored with a reverse stick in the corner. Izzy Pope who ran continuously in midfield linked up superbly with Emma Baker to play a one-two around I-ES with Baker slotting home.
PoM: Laura Overland.
Wisbech Ladies’ 3rd 1 Ely 2’s 2
With Wisbech facing a heavily supported Ely team who played four higher players, the rule book forced the opposition to play just 11.
The ladies held off Ely for a while and took the game to them and there was some fantastic work in goal from Louisa Allen. Wisbech had plenty of opportunities to equalise after Ely had scored a well worked goal.
Second half the ladies came out fighting, but a short corner for the opposition gave them a 2-0 lead. A few minutes before the final whistle Andrea Eggleton hit the ball superbly first time and got Wisbech their first goal of the season. The team pushed hard for the equaliser but time ran out.
PoM: newcomer Oliwia Bolka.
U10 & U12 JUNIOR TOURNAMENT
