Wisbech Town ladies bounced back from going behind to beat Blueharts 5-1 on Saturday.

After the early set back, the hosts levelled through Jane Peggs’ composed finish from a short corner.

This was quickly followed by a great team goal finished off by Claire Apted’s deflection.

On the stroke of half time, Laura Overland converted from a short corner.

Mid way through the second half Peggs got her second, closely followed by Georgie Dunn’s goal.

Captain Leanne Williamson said: “We played some fantastic hockey at times but still need to be more consistent with our passing.

“We have been unlucky in the past few weeks with our results and the team thoroughly deserved a good win.
