Wisbech’s lead of both pools in the Long Sutton Summer League was relinquished after their first and second teams slipped to defeats.

New leaders of the Moulton Pool are The Ninjas after they gained revenge for their opening night defeat by thrashing Wisbech 2nd 5-0.

Taking the game to their unbeaten rivals from the pushback they never looked back after Danny Sisson’s fine finish. Sisson then turned provider with a pass to Jeorgia Carr, who rounded the keeper and finished with an experienced touch that belied her 13 years.

After the break, good work from the impressive Sisson again set up Alex Canham for 3-0, Carr drove home her second from a short corner and then finished at the back post for her hat-trick.

In the other game Spalding 1st picked up their first point with a 1-1 draw against The Pressies, who started well.

It was no surprise when Mallet opened the scoring with a thunderous shot for Pressies, but Spalding worked themselves level in the second half when Keith Stennett profited from some poor defending.

Renewed vigour from Wiles and James Ireland saw the Pressies hold on.

All are level on four points in the Crowland Pool, with the Nerds topping the table on goal difference after beating Spalding 2nd 2-1.

The Nerds welcomed Gemma Parr to their ranks for the first time and she arrived in some style, helping make the first goal for Hales.

Spalding got back into the game with an own goal after the break, and it looked that the points would be shared until Featherstone slotted in the winner.

Sutton Sabres got back to winning ways with a hard fought 1-0 win over a much changed Wisbech side.

Both sides worked hard and Sabres took the lead through a well struck Ben Shore finish before half time.

Some strong tackling broke up the flow of the game, restricting both sides from putting together their passing games.

The game was well contested after the break but chances were not taken.
