WISBECH Hockey Club enjoyed two derby wins over March and won four of the six matches they were involved in at the weekend.

Wisbech men's thirds 3-2 home NE14 5NW win over March thirds was a closer affair.
Mark Jones sneaked the ball past the goalkeeper to give Wisbech an early lead, March drew level after some poor marking and it was 1-1 at half-time.
A below par Wisbech restored their lead with a good finish from man of the match Tom Jupp and Richard Claxton scored to make the game safe with five minutes left.
March scored a consolation goal from a short corner in the final minute.
Wisbech men's firsts beat Cambridge City first team 8-5 at home in the NE14 Men's Premier A Division, but as 13-gaol thrillers go this was a pretty ordinary match
Goals from Joe Melton, Brad Apted and Luke Smith gave Wisbech a commanding 3-0 lead before City pulled one back.
A sublime Apted finish from a Drew Harvey ball made it 4-1 at half-time.
Cambridge opened the scoring in the second half but Wisbech struck straight back as Apted completed his hat-trick.
Cambridge again came back with a short corner goal before Sam Blunt took over for Wisbech. Firstly he flicked the ball home from a short corner. Then, either side of Cambridge goals, he won two penalty strokes after beating the keeper and having goal-bound shots stopped illegally.
Wisbech host Bedford tomorrow at 2.30pm.
Goals from Jenny Martell, Lisa Williamson, Shelley Jones and Dionne Ibrahim helped Wisbech ladies' seconds to a 4-2 home Cambs Ladies Premier League victory over Cambridge City thirds.
