Louth 2’s 0 Wisbech Ladies 2nds 9

Wisbech travelled with a team of 11 players.

The ladies had lots of possession but just couldn’t find the back of the net, before 15 minutes in when Louise Walker managed to get a powerful hit on the ball from the top of the D, beating the keeper for her first-ever goal.

This seemed to be the boost everyone needed and soon the goals started to come.

Jo Gomm scored next in a solo effort, followed by Andrea Eggleton from a ball off Gomm around the keeper. Gomm scored again off a short corner with a bit of luck as the ball came off a defender.

In the second half the ladies continued to dominate. Jo Gregory and Ali Mason did a superb job in defence. The midfield worked some nice linking play, which gave lots more chances at goal.

Gomm scored again for her hat-trick and was unlucky not to get a few more. This was followed by a strong strike by Carmen Hannibal-Stewart, her first goal of the season and then another lucky goal with a Gomm strike saved by the keeper but the ball hit a defender and crossed the line.

The ladies then had a run of short corners and scored from a strong strike from Kate Penn, which was deflected by Eggleton for her second. Wisbech got a penalty flick: Sue Robinson calmly stepped up and slotted the ball away past the keeper.

A superb team effort by the ladies, who are playing some very nice possession hockey this season. Well done to PoM Penn for excellent work rate, making strong attacking drives and getting back to defend throughout the match.

Cambs South IV 2

A depleted side saw two ‘netballing sisters’ stepping up for their first competitive ladies’ hockey match since leaving school.

Despite playing top of leagues South, the match was closely contested with the first goal coming from a deflected touch by a static player in front of the keeper. Even though they had some good attacking play, Wisbech were unable to score.

Late in the second half Cambs scored on the break, sealing the win.

An impressive performance from both newbies saw Sam Walker secure the player of the match. Next the ladies are at home to St Neots 4ths.
