Wisbech Ladies defeat Park to make first final
Park Ladies 0
Wisbech Ladies 3
Wisbech Town Ladies produced a commanding performance to progress to their first-ever cup final, against Cambridge United Res.
Park came out flying and pushed Wisbech back in the opening exchanges, but after the first ten minutes or so Town got on top and soon took the lead when Annie Rooks fired home after another mazy run.
The lead was soon doubled after Albany Hodgson won the ball in midfield and fed Kyra Clarke, who calmly lifted the ball over the advancing keeper.
The second half followed much the same pattern. The third goal was a fine strike from Sophie Gutteridge who picked up the ball after a scramble in the box. Chelsea King also rattled the crossbar from 25 yards. Credit to Park for never giving up.
