Wisbech Ladies 3,
Long Sutton 0

After an even and goalless first half in this local derby, the second 35 minutes took a different turn in the home side’s favour.

After play was built up through the field Claire Apted swooped in to steal a goal on the goal line. Nat Ward rounded two defenders and scored, and Georgie Dunn, after a pass fired in from defence, coolly netted.

Wisbech travel next weekend to Ipswich to play their final game of the season.

Sutton’s Martin Hudson commented: “Long Sutton Ladies have a big job to do to remain in this league but destiny is still to some extent in their own hands.”

Wisbech had their strongest squad for a good few weeks, welcoming back Ed Batt from a broken finger and James Mansfield from his three-month expedition across the southern hemisphere.

A fine first half performance saw the lads go into half-time against the league leaders 0-0.

Controversy struck for Uni’s first goal, Wisbech’s back line were aggrieved after thinking the ball had run out of play. The away side were 2-0 down before a penalty corner was lashed in by Sam Blunt. He equalised with his second drag flick moments later. University took the spoils in the last few minutes.
