Held at the Hudson Leisure Centre on June 8, a close-fought competition saw Wisbech and Boston neck-and-neck throughout the evening, the home team eventually inching clear to win by eight points in Round Three of the competition.
Wisbech won 22 and came second in 11 out of 44 individual races, with 24 personal best times being recorded, including four for Zoe Wilson, three for Matas Rabasauskas and two each for Aiste Virzintaite and Alex Wilson.
The result puts Wisbech top with two rounds and the final still to come, who next travel to the Deepings for Round Four on July 13.
