Sudbury I 2, University of East Anglia I 4

Sudbury had targeted this game for three points, but an abysmal performance saw them leave Norwich with nothing.

They found themselves behind after Harrington deflected home a short-corner strike. Minutes later Sudbury were level after Kevis released Hann down the right. He was fouled by a defender and from the resulting short-corner Clubb shot wide but Hann deflected home to make the score 1-1.

Soon Sudbury were ahead, a scramble in the UEA 'D' left the ball with Unwin who slotted through the keeper's legs.

Sudbury played their worst hockey of the season after half-time, and the umpires dished out two yellow cards for each side. The match became very disjointed, but the students took their chances to win 4-2.

With two games left before Christmas, Sudbury need six points to avoid being dragged into a relegation fight. This Saturday they play Cambridge City III, a team one place above them in the league.

Sudbury Ladies III 0, Ipswich and East Suffolk II 0

SUDBURY were largely unchanged and confident following victory the previous week, as they faced a team which had double their points in the league.

Sudbury were on the attack right from the start but failed to capitalise on their dominance.

IES wasted several short corner opportunities, while the Sudbury defence dealt efficiently with goal attempts, captain Harrington playing well in goal and Jess Kendell earning her player of the match award.

Sudbury went down to 10-men for a short period at the start of the second half, Florrie Barber receiving a card.

A goalless draw was an excellent result for a young Sudbury side against an IES side that plays at the same level as Sudbury Ladies I.

This week an upbeat Sudbury III meet Ipswich IV again at Tuddenham Road.

Sudbury Ladies IV 3, Newmarket Ladies III 0

Sudbury started brightly, some good surging runs from Kate Hurley and Moira Thompson down the wings, with Alice King and Lily Chiang controlling midfield, saw the opposition camped in their own half. Maria Risley hit the post and Alice King shot just wide, but despite keeping the opposition keeper busy, Sudbury were unable to convert their chances into goals and the score remained 0-0 at half-time.

Sudbury continued to dominate and their first goal came following an excellent pass from the right into the 'D' by Kate Hurley, which found Alice King on hand to slot into the goal.

Sudbury lost their shape a little which gave Newmarket the opportunity to break and force a fine save from goalkeeper Peggy.

A superb run by Daisy Palmer from deep in her own half saw her take the ball almost the full length of the pitch, into the D and unleash a fine shot for an excellent solo goal.

Ten minutes from time a goalmouth scramble forced a save from the Newmarket keeper, player-of-the-match Celia Fitch-Holland collecting the rebound to score from close range.
