- Credit: Archant
A tough and physical encounter with Wisbech saw the Tigers end up on top.
The opposition started off the stronger side. Consistent possession led to Ely conceding two penalties early on with Wisbech converting both.
Ely came back with a penalty of their own and just before the end of the half Charlie Coupland ran a storming line and slipped straight through the opposition defence, danced round three would be tacklers and dotted down under the posts.
In the second half Ely fought hard to get ahead, Coupland crossed again when the ball was fly-hacked through, he won the chase and dived to dot it down for a converted try.
Wisbech were penalised for an offside infringement.
