Park knew that they had to keep their concentration at the beginning of the second half but neither team found the accurate passing that they had in the first half.

IES then drew level when a quick taken free hit caught Park napping and a shot took a deflection and ended in the back of the net.

This made Park more determined and they were unlucky to take the lead when Sarah Whatling's shot went wide.

Park were awarded a few penalty corners and their perseverance paid off when a shot by Sarah Whatling was blocked only to be passed straight back to her. Her second attempt gave the visitor's keeper no chance.

IES were then awarded a penalty corner and some excellent running out by Emma Tuckwell saw her clear the ball before a shot could be taken on goal.

Park added pressure on the visitors and forced them to make errors. The final whistle came with IES hemmed in their defensive half of the pitch.
