Wisbech travelled with a mixture of players from their Ladies 1st, 2nd and 3rd team and Long Sutton 1sts knowing it was going to be a hard contest.
Norwich took the lead within the first 20 minutes. Wisbech fought back and at their first short corner, Laura Overland’s strike from the top of the D was then deflected by Gilly Dunn which went into the path of Lyn Tancred who slotted the ball into the back of the net.
At the beginning of the second half the Dragons scored two quick goals after dubious decisions by the umpires but Wisbech again came back with Ali Mason making good use of the space down the right. Wisbech had numerous short corners but were unable to close the gap which eventually saw Dragons score their fourth.
Wisbech felt the score did not reflect the game after an excellent team performance.
PoM: Laura Overland.
