An in-form Wisbech were slow off the mark and conceded an early goal through a good passing move from top of the league Sudbury.

Wisbech continued their pressure in the second half and forced the Sudbury keeper into some top class saves. A mistake at the back left keeper Will Smithee outnumbered and the visitors went 2-0 up.

Smithee had stepped up to the first team and made a series of very fine saves. The men play at home next weekend to Old Southendians looking to resume their winning form.

The first ten minutes suggested mid-table Wisbech were going to come out on top. A number of goal scoring opportunities were created and despite not converting them it felt like goals were going to come.

The game changed when Wisbech failed to respond well to a goal from Ipswich against the flow of play, and heads went down.

The sending off of a player for dissent meant the team were down to ten players for ten minutes. Georgia Bingham had a particularly good first half.

Wisbech as a team need to be ready to take on Bedford at home next Saturday.

PoM: Emma Baker.

Huntingdon were lucky to get another goal from a deflection.

A big thank you to those players who stepped up and Fiona HP for stepping out of : retirement. It was some of their best hockey to date on show Saturday.

PoM: Sue ‘Swampy’ Robinson/Nicola Greville/Libby Bingham.
