Cambridge University 1, Wisbech Ladies 1

Wisbech were first to break the deadlock despite relentless pressure from Cambridge.

Lisa Williamson neatly deflected in a short corner strike from Katie Rodger.

Wisbech worked hard to maintain the lead but were unfortunately broken down by Cambridge midway through the second half.

The ladies’ trophy game which was due to be played this Sunday has been rearranged due to a flooded pitch.

Wisbech Ladies II 0,

St Neots 1

Wisbech battled hard against a determined St Neots, who scored midway through the first half.

PoM: Georgia Bingham. A great game also for Emily Woods in midfield.

Next weekend: away to Long Sutton.

Newmarket 2nds 0,

WTHC Ladies 3rds 0

The game was always expected to be the hardest so far as they are second in the table, just above Wisbech. The team put in 100 per cent concentration and effort at all times.

Next weekend: 4pm against Haverhill at Harecroft Road.

Wisbech Town Men 1,

Felixstowe 4

A match between the league’s two bottom sides did not play out as the scoreline would suggest.

Felixstowe took a 2-0 lead, however Wisbech hit back through David Hodson after excellent build-up play from the front five.

Wisbech spent the next half of the game banging on the door desperately seeking a season-changing equaliser, but found a goalkeeper in very good form.

Dan Martell received a yellow but around that time two of Felixstowe’s players also saw cards. In the last five minutes Wisbech were caught on the counter attack twice.

Captain Charlie Baxter couldn’t ask for anything more from his players. Wisbech will have to pick themselves against an in-form Chelmsford.

Horncastle 2,

Wisbech 3rds 1

Wisbech played some of their best hockey this season at top of the table Horncastle.

Elliot Peck slotted an excellent goal after great work from the entire midfield. At this stage there only looked to be one winner but late in the first half saw a nasty injury to Jack Bas, who had been running the game and was taken to hospital.

Wisbech 3rds have back to back home games and wins there will set them up for a good position.

Wisbech 4th 4, St Ives 4

With some of their best passing of the season, Wisbech scorers were Kieran Hallet and Ciaran Lowe.

Next weekend: v Cambs Sth 3rds (a), 1.30pm.
