Ladies hockey round-up

Ipswich & East Suffolk 0, Wisbech Town Ladies 3,

Wisbech returned to winning ways with a convincing performance in their League game.

Wisbech opened the scoring with an attack down the right flank and a strong hit into from Jodi Peggs the ‘D’ gave Erika Burrell the first goal.

Ipswich put a lot of pressure on their right and many of their attacks came from this side, however with little success in penetrating the Wisbech defence.

With one goal separating the two teams at half-time Wisbech were determined to leave victorious. Possession hockey in the midfield from Wisbech led to a penalty corner and Roma Coates slotted home the second goal.

The home side started to retaliate and at times looked like they might score but another attack and good teamwork allowed a solid pass from Apted to set Georgie Dunn up for a 3-0 win.

On Saturday Wisbech are at home to Norwich Dragons 1pm

Wisbech Town ladies 2, Broxbourne 1

Wisbech took the lead in this third round cup-tie on Sunday with hard work from attacker Georgie Dunn setting up Lisa Williamson score.

A second goal was came close to half time from a penalty flick converted by Wisbech defender Sue Slator.

The second half saw Broxbourne turn on the heat and a strong attack into the ‘D’ gave them the goal to put them back in contention, although the shot was soft and did not match their strength in attack.

Wisbech were not quite as structured in formation as they normally are, however they were able to maintain the lead and progress to the next round of the cup.
