Will Boreham man-of-match as Wisbech 2nd XV Wildcats produce 22-14 bonus point victory at St Neots II in second away win of season
Wisbech 2nd XV Wildcats produced a convincing 22-14 bonus point victory away at St Neots II in a second away win of the season.
The week before a Wisbech under-16 side travelled to St Neots to claim a convincing cup win and this week it fell on the Wildcats to do similar.
Wisbech started strongly with Stafford Proctor making some good inroads into the defence, and the first five minutes saw youngster Owen Ketteringham go over in the corner after some smart interplay via the veteran Sam Anderson.
St Neots hit back with two interception tries on the break. This led to the introduction of debutant Adam Green. His aggressive breaks and ferocious tackles led to a try from James Bostock after an unsavoury incident of fisticuffs from both sides which resulted in Wisbech going into the break trailing 14-10.
They had to chase the game in the second half and strong runs by Wisbech Round Table man of the match Will Boreham, alongside some tight defence from Ari Bagdouhayn and James Cox, put Wisbech in the ascendancy. This pressure led to a try by Green.
A further breakaway try came from speedster Dan Di Meo after some sharp interplay between the returning veteran Dave Brodie, Nigel Colman and Paul Lee. Shaun Hawthorne also produced a notable performance. Wildcats travel to top of the league Mildenhall on Saturday.
