Wisbech Ladies 1st 1, St Ives 1

Wisbech remain unbeaten after a second half equaliser from the visitors.

From the whistle it was an end to end game and both teams had their chances in front of goal but it was Wisbech who took the lead.

After a good build-up Claire Apted put the ball into the back of the net following a goalmouth scrap.

Wisbech went into the break leading, however, in the second half St Ives came back out fighting and put together some dangerous attacks, which could have changed the game if it was not for player of the match Alysha Moat pulling off some excellent saves in goal.

Wisbech continued to pile on the pressure at the other end, but St Ives were finally rewarded for their efforts when they converted a short corner. The home side pushed for the winner, but it did not come.

Wisbech travel to Dereham on Saturday.

Huntingdon 3, Wisbech Ladies 2nds 2

Wisbech lost out in the Cambridgeshire League Cup.

They started strongly with some superb passing moves, but were unable to convert their chances. Huntingdon scored two quick goals, despite some good saves from goalkeeper Rosie Stevenson, who made her debut for the seconds. Wisbech fought hard to get a goal back and were rewarded when Marly Lawson’s shot was deflected into the Huntingdon goal.

Joey Gomm (pom) worked tirelessly in midfield, supported by Polly Rosier, but Wisbech were caught on the break when Huntingdon scored their third goal. Wisbech got a consolation goal at the end of the match from a well-placed short corner strike by Lou Sandall.

Wisbech are away to Cambridge University this Saturday.
