Wisbech shaded the possession with Lou Sandall and Gilly Dunn making inroads into he Huntingdon defence on several occasions.

The second half looked as if it was going to follow a similar pattern, especially when Shelly Jones missed a gilt-edged opportunity to give Wisbech the lead.

Georgie Dunn came off the bench to save Jones's blushes as she combined with mother Gilly before scoring the opening goal with a deft finish.

The game was still in the balance and Wisbech at times had to defend resolutely in order to preserve their well-deserved lead.

Gilly Dunn then doubled the advantage and almost straight from the re-start, her daughter scored her second goal by coolly finishing after her initial effort was saved.

A great all-round performance saw Gilly Dunn voted Player of the Match in what was a terrific team display.
