Division 4NE

Holt Harlequins 3 Ipswich IV 1

Holt avenged their 14-0 defeat to Ipswich from earlier in the season with this victory.

Ipswich were more or less at full strength, with only the top goal scorer Olly Holloway missing. Holt's five players who played in the first game were relieved when they noticed this as Holloway had scored eight in the 14-0 win.

It didn't take long for the quick thinking Ipswich team to notice this was a much improved Holt team.

In the first half Ipswich sliced Holt open repeatedly but the finishing was atrocious. Reed, Scarff and Thomas hit sitters wide, however Reed scored an impossible reverse stick swishes from the top of the D.

Ipswich were not playing well and after the captain took Sneddon off Ipswich conceded and would have done so again but for the umpire giving a short corner a nano-second before the ball crossed the line.

To the say the second half was one-way traffic would be an understatement. Holt played well as Ipswich had their worst half since 2005.

At the end only one team deserved to win and it was Holt who ran out 3-1 winners.

Things are now looking tight at the top of Division 4NE with two teams now within three points of the 4th XI.
