CAMBS LADIES' PREMIER DIVISION
Wisbech Town II 2 St Ives II 2
TOWN were unable to turn total dominance into three points.
They started by gifting St Ives a soft goal in the first two minutes but then spent 90 per cent of the play camped out in 10 player St Ives' half.
Just after 30 minutes Shelley Jones equalised.
The second half of the game was an exact re-run of the first with St Ives claiming the lead again through a converted penalty corner early on.
Constant pressure finally brought an equaliser when Gilly Dunn pounced on a defensive mix up and bundled the ball home.
Player of the match went to Jenny Martell.
