Sudbury started positively with attacking opportunities through the forward line of Molly May, Maria Risley and Sophie Lesberg-Smith.

But a defensive error resulted in Sudbury conceding an early goal despite keeper Lizzie Anderson's best efforts.

After half-time Sudbury put on a performance to be proud of. Alice Park and Moria Thompson worked hard on the wings and the solid defence of Olivia Hurley, Jaclyn Taylor, Lily Chiang and Kate Hurley ensured the opposition had minimal chances. Alice King played a strong game in the centre and was unfortunate not to score.
