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 making life difficult for the Suffolk side. 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 took a shock lead as David Taylor got a yard of space and managed to place a turning shot into the corner. Leading at the break 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, they built their attacks well and IES succumbed to two weakly defended goals to lose 2-1. This was a fair result on the performance and a game to forget for IES.

This week local rivals Sudbury come to the Copleston Centre looking to push for promotion.
