Ipswich East Suffolk 3 St Ives 2

These two evenly matched sides began the game at a swift pace, with both sharing equal possession and battling hard.

The IES midfield looked well balanced and was backed up by a confident defence.

St Ives kicked off the scoring midway through the first half but IES fought back and had a number of penalty corners.

The second half saw IES continue to pressure St Ives and when Shelley Pleasence broke from midfield with an inspired run to level the score, IES gained a little more self-belief.

St Ives however, were not disheartened and came back with another goal.

Stalwarts of the midfield Linda Rose and Ellie Mason kept the Ipswich side in touch and the creative flare of Pleasence created another goal, this time for Anne Edney to finish off.

With the scores level, IES continued to press and with three minutes left a stunning penalty corner from Pleasence thudded the back board of the St Ives goal leaving IES to celebrate their first win of the new year.
