‘Fenladies’ win Division One Cup quarter-final 9-2 at North championship rivals Cardea
Division One Cup quarter-final: Cardea Ladies 2 Wisbech Town Ladies 9
Wisbech reached their second cup semi-final this season with this convincing win over their North championship rivals.
Town took the lead within three minutes when Sophie Swinden volleyed in the first.
Shortly after Chelsea King made it 2-0 with a dipping shot. Skipper Faye Kowalewsky made it three when she picked up a loose clearance and smashed it home. Chloe Stanborough jinked into the box and slotted home after 25 minutes.
With some heavy challenges flying in, a long range free kick gave keeper Jamie-Leigh Mitchell no chance, and shortly after the hosts added a penalty.
The ‘Fenladies’ kept the home team pressed deep in their half for nearly the entire second half.
Kowalewsky netted from wide on the right, Stanborough added her second with a nice finish and Swinden curled in the pick of the goals after neat linking play. Aisling Ryan slotted home after a scrambled corner, while player of the match Kowalewsky completed her hat-trick.
Next Sunday the ladies host the only other unbeaten side in their league, Ketton, 2pm KO.
It would be great to see some support for the ladies as they look to strengthen their position in the league.
