Ladies 1’s v’s Wisbech 2’s: 6-1 win to Wisbech
Newmarket were hit hard with their first defeat of the season to Wisbech.
It took Wisbech just 2 minutes to get on the score board finding the bottom right hand corner. Newmarket looked flustered as they struggled to gel in unfamiliar positions.
Newmarket began to settle and looked the stronger of the two sides and a goal finally went in after 17 minutes, Angel Fayers getting the final touch. From then on the game looked a little weak with both teams struggling to work as a unit. Newmarket had two great goal chances that could have given them the mental edge they needed but they were unlucky – hitting the post and the ball rolling slightly wide. Wisbech scored again just before half time but Newmarket still had faith they could come back at them.
Unfortunately Wisbech grew stronger in the second half and were playing a very physical game. Newmarket were unable to link with each other allowing Wisbech to make quick breaks unchallenged. They scored a further four times from close range, decimating Newmarket’s hopes of an unbeaten season. A few chances fell to Town but again they were unlucky with shots glancing the post. They hope for a more even game when they face Wisbech at home.
Newmarket now have 2 weeks without a game – this will give chance for reflection on their defeat, but thankfully they still have an 8 point cushion at the top of the league.
