Plucky Wisbech St Mary defeated by leaders
Downham Town 1, Wisbech St Mary 0
Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League First Division North
Bottom of the table Saints produced a battling display against high-flying Downham this afternoon.
With St Mary still looking for their first win of the season, many would have predicted this to have been a mismatch with Downham now moving to the top of the table.
Downham started brightly but found a determined Saints team that never gave in and competed for every 50-50 header and tackle.
Even though the home side dominated possession they didn't find the right ball to unlock the visiting defence until the 75th minute when Downham's captain Pat Yates poked home the winner.
Saints had come to defend and did not manage to have a shot on goal until the last 10 minutes,when they became a bit more adventurous and created a few half chances. They also saw a late penalty claim waved away.
