Ely Ladies 1st XI moved to within two touching distance of top-spot in the Cambridge Ladies Hockey League after cruising past Wisbech 7-2.

Despite having not played for a fortnight, Ely were dangerous straight from the start with some well-rehearsed passing moves proving too good for the Wisbech 2nd XI.

Krista Hopkinson, returning to the side after absence, played well in the centre of midfield to help Ely dominate the early possession. This allowed Dani Fletcher, Ali Chapman and Emily Kisby to capitalise on space created out wide for the home side.

Ely's passing soon got the better of the visitors and Man-of-the-match Gemma Voutt weighed in with four goals for the team with Chanre Bond getting herself a hat-trick.
