Lisa strike saves the ladies’ blushes

Wisbech Ladies 3, Norwich Dragons 3

Wisbech faced the fire of Norwich Dragons in a game that produced the closest match yet for the League leaders.

Wisbech went a goal down and needed to find a way to penetrate the midfield of the visiting team. However, this did not prove to be an easy task with the Dragons putting on the pressure from the front switching the attack and keeping Wisbech defenders on their toes.

However, a gap was found on the right from defence and some good teamwork produced the equaliser scored by Georgie Dunn.

Wisbech found themselves on the back foot again in the second half and the Dragons attacked with some slick passing and managed to score two more goals to lead 3-1

Wisbech looked in trouble but their determination found the extra will which gave player of the match Joanne Gomm the penultimate goal from strong work from the midfielders. Now chasing a draw, play became a little frantic at times but Wisbech equalised through Lisa Williamson to to continue their unbeaten run.

Wisbech travel to Ipswich on Saturday.
