Blueharts 4, Wisbech 3

A slightly depleted Wisbech team raced into a 2-0 lead inside 10 minutes via David Hodson and Will Denny.

The hosts drew level with some well worked short corners. Denny was cynically fouled and skipper Jonathan Shippey despatched the penalty stroke.

Controversy yet again when Shippey was obstructed before the Harts forward rifled a reverse stick shot past keeper Tom Peggs. Denny was denied a penalty corner.

Bedford 5, Wisbech 3

Wisbech again took an understrength side looking to build on their great display in Hitchin on Saturday.

They were 3-0 down inside 20 minutes, but rallied to 3-2 with Gavin Johnstone finishing nicely from a penalty corner and finding David Hodson in the circle who deflected home. Careless play then gifted Bedford two goals.

Ed Batt deflected home a James Mansfield crash ball into the circle.

Many positives again for Wisbech to take into next weekend when they go to Cambridge University.

Lowestoft Ladies 1, Wisbech Ladies 0

Wisbech travelled to the coast on Saturday hoping that the tide would wash ashore three points.

Opportunities went begging and the home side took the three points late in the second half.

Wisbech now drop to seventh in the league with the already-promoted Saffron Walden visiting Harecroft Road on Saturday at 1pm.

Wisbech 3rd 1, St Neots 2

Wisbech started well in this key East Hockey Mens Division 3NW relegation battle and had some good possession but this did not result in any goals.

St Neots scored one in each half, although Wisbech managed to get a goal back. It now seems that the 3rd XI are destined to make the drop.

Wisbech 4ths 1, Bourne Deeping 3rds 3

Wisbech took a deserved lead halfway through the first half with a goal from Toby George.

Wisbech held on until half-time, conceded twice then were caught on the break.

Next weekend: Long Sutton, 11.30am.
