Wisbech ladies the ‘team to beat’ after late goals preserve first team’s unbeaten run

WISBECH ladies’ hockey first team had to strike late in order to preserve their unbeaten record in a frantic 3-3 draw at the weekend.

Despite a Georgie Dunn strike, the table-topping ladies found themselves 3-1 down as the final whistle approached but goals from Joanne Gomm and Lisa Williamson helped keep their golden run intact.

The team have not lost any of their 16 league games but they have drawn three out of their last four.

Vice-captain Verity Allen said: “I think teams know that we have that pressure on us as league leaders. They have realised that we are the team to beat.

“It’s not that we haven’t been putting in good performances at all - we come out week after week and we put in a team effort. It took determination to come back from two goals down.

“We would love to go unbeaten for the rest of the season but the main aim is promotion - anything else is a bonus.

“The attitude is still the same, there’s still a great team spirit and determination. We have drawn a few games but we are the team to beat and other sides know that.”
