Cambridge City III 2 Ipswich East Suffolk 1

Ipswich East Suffolk's hopes of a top four spot in their return to Division 2N look to be dwindling after a poor performance in Cambridge on Saturday.

IES started poorly, numerous defensive errors combining with some interesting umpiring to make life difficult. In an even contest, the home side managed to win several penalty corners from good right wing play. IES did not penetrate or look to do so and Cambridge's defence mopped up all they had to offer with ease.

IES then took a shock lead as David Taylor got a yard of space and managed to place a turning shot into the corner.

Leading at half time was a relief for the visitors and they looked to build within the first ten minutes of the second period. Cambridge, however, looked the stronger and more confident team and forced numerous corners again. They were harshly adjudged to have a disallowed corner strike due to the ball not being out of the D and then had a similar decision shortly afterwards, much to the dismay of their forward who sat out the game for ten minutes after dissent.

Once Cambridge soaked up IES pressure with ten men, Cambridge City built their attacks well and IES succumbed to two weakly defended goals to lose 2-1.

A fair result on performance and a game to forget for IES. This weekend sees IES local rivals Sudbury come to the Copleston Centre looking to push for promotion.
