TWO Wisbech Hockey Club matches survived the weather with the men's fist team losing 4-2 at Havering and the men's thirds going down 3-1 at home against St Neots thirds.
Joe Melton struck twice in the first team's NE14 Premier A match.
Wisbech were missing six players and worked tirelessly.
In midfield Aaron Cobb, Matt Levanda and Dan Martell put in some excellent work. Martell was a particular thorn in Havering's side and Matt Wate and Jon Shippey impressed in Wisbech's defence.

The score was 1-1 at half-time but Havering went ahead through a short corner.
