Dragons are hit for six by fiery Wisbech
EAST WOMEN'S LEAGUE: Norwich Dragons failed to halt the charge of Division 1N leaders Wisbech as they crashed to a 6-2 defeat.
Dragons started well and took the lead when Marie James slotted home from a short corner.
But that only served to fire up Wisbech, who replied with three goals before half-time.
Dragons fell further behind before Hannah Hardy scored from close range to make it 5-2, but Wisbech added another with 10 minutes remaining.
In Division 2NE, Sprowston thumped bottom of the table Haverhill 6-1.

City's rapidly growing injury list led to an unfamiliar starting line-up, but they went ahead when Angela Fletcher found Fongy Chung, who netted with a reverse stick shot.
Loddon equalised, but City regained the lead when Leigh-Ann Worrall coolly flicked the ball into the net from a short corner.
Sarah Shelley made it 3-1 in the second half, before Loddon again hit back, but City's defence successfully negotiated a nervy final 15 minutes.
