Battling back, IES fought for their own penalty corners and came close on a couple of efforts before Tingey played the ball towards goal, only for the Spalding keeper to leave it thinking it was outside of the D.
It was not, however, and umpire Charles signalled a goal. One all at half time seemed a fair result and IES went out for the second period in search of a winning goal.
They faced several penalty corners in a row, however, one of which was adjudged to have been stopped on the line by Gooderham.
The Spalding skipper stepped up to take the resulting penalty stroke and then proceeded to hit the crossbar, post and out.
This let off for IES rallied them into action and they took the lead through Cole who played it past the stranded keeper for the winner.
Man of the Match was Carl Short, for his excellent defending and calmness. Simon Downing made his debut at left half, making some probing runs forward.
