Ipswich II 0 Wisbech 4

Ipswich again came away from their NE14HOCKEY East League home fixture against Wisbech empty handed despite continuing to show evidence of skill, determination and creativity on the pitch.

Unfortunately, the team has also showed a tendency to lose possession too easily and a lack of finishing power.

Going a goal down in the first ten minutes did not phase Ipswich who looked the stronger team in the first half.

Soon after conceding the goal, the home team came tantalizingly close to pulling level from a well- worked short corner which just lacked the pace to make it count.

In terms of open play, Ipswich were in this game from start to finish but were again punished for failing to make goal scoring opportunities count.

Wisbech, on the other hand, took their chances going 2-0 up by half time and adding a third from a penalty stroke midway through the second half.

The home team meanwhile was making some driving runs down the right via Phoebe Walker, Sophie Kesterton and Chloe Hunnable but, as in previous weeks, Ipswich failed to turn promise into points.

And Ipswich's luck got worse when the umpire showed Hannah Godfrey a yellow card for an innocuous comment.

Ipswich will look to the away fixture with Letchworth with renewed grit and determination.
