Cambridge University 1, Wisbech Town Ladies 2

Wisbech showed great resilience to beat second in the league Cambridge University.

Good possession play in midfield and some clever teamwork between Jo Gomm and Natalie Ward gave rise to Ward’s goal in the top of the net.

Cambridge came back fighting after the break and it was closely fought but Wisbech managed to clinch another goal from open play this time with the final touch from Jo Gomm.

With plenty of stamina and fight left University were rewarded with a cleverly worked penalty corner leaving them trailing 2-1.

Determined now, not to let the lead slip Wisbech kept cool and were resilient to secure a victory to make them 10 points clear in the legue. On Saturday Wisbech are home to local rivals Pelicans 11.30.
