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.

Amy Butler pounced on a rebound following a short corner to give Sprowston the lead and Kerry Hamilton doubled the advantage. Haverhill pulled one back before half-time, but Sprowston turned on the style in the second half, as Butler completed her hat-trick, Hamilton got her second and Sam Tea was also on target.

Norwich City moved up to second in the table with a 3-2 win at Loddon.
