Sudbury III v Lowestoft II

This was a game which Sudbury should have won. An early attack down the right was supported well by Eliza Barratt, in the centre, and Sudbury went into the lead with a neat deflection from newcomer Lauren Ballard.

Lowestoft soon replied with a breakaway run down the centre, converted by their experienced striker from the right.

Sudbury broke the deadlock just before half-time, to take the lead once more, with a fine deflection by Mishka Mayers on the left.

The half-time advice was to consolidate: three points would take the team clear of the five teams at the bottom of the league and away from the relegation zone.

Sudbury dominated the half, but failed to capitalise on numerous short corners, even missing an open goal.

Fifteen minutes into the half, a breakaway against the run of play, left Sudbury exposed at the back, and Lowestoft equalised.

There was outstanding work in the centre between Amanda Mills, at the top of the diamond, Eliza Barratt up front, and some sterling support from Liz Spencer. Anna Cooper, at right-back, had a fine game.

But Sudbury could not score again and have it all to play for against Bury St Edmunds IIIs on Saturday.
