Sandy & Shefford 0 Ipswich 2

IPSWICH made the trip to Sandy expecting a hard fought encounter against a team that can be touchy with the umpires and each other! Ipswich had lost convincingly in the same fixture last year but they were confident that history would not be repeated. Ipswich started in dominant mood and enjoyed territorial superiority and were grateful to take the lead when a well worked short corner was converted by Sampson. Shefford are no mugs and they put together some good moves to create chances but on the rare occasions they created scoring chances they found keeper Steward in excellent form.

Despite their lead the half time team talk revolved around upping the pace and keeping possession, and certainly the second half began with Ipswich in control; midway through the half however, Ipswich increased the lead in controversial circumstances. Shefford expecting a penalty corner relaxed allowing Foster to gain possession in his own circle sprinted the length of the pitch before slipping to Glading to convert.

In the dying minutes Shefford could have come back into the game but they were frustrated to see Steward's save deflected onto the cross bar and another effort rebound off the post.
