Ipswich East Suffolk 4 Bury II 0

Ipswich East Suffolk played their penultimate match of the season against visitors Bury.

IES started the game with real confidence, playing the ball through the Bury midfield and defence. The goal scoring started early and through a short corner Anne Edney got the finishing touch to make the score 1-0.

With each member of the team working hard IES commanded the play and enabled all members of the squad to be involved. Each player committed to the game in hand with strong moves from Claire Pearsons and excellent stick work and drive from IES's woman of the match Abigail Adams.

IES then produced a strong contender for goal of the season when Abigail Adams passed a visionary ball across the top of the circle to unmarked captain Linda Rose who smashed the ball up and under the top net of the goal. The defence and keeper could only stare at the conversion.

In the second half Bury attempted their onslaught but were unable to convert the few penalty corners that they earned.

Due to injury IES had to make a keeper substitution, Faye Godden leaving the pitch to be replaced by Anne Edney. Sapphire Cutting found her running legs and, with terrier determination, she managed to slip the ball past the keeper to give the home side a 3-0 lead.

With the game almost over it was down to Lou Fletcher's keen eye and alert reactions to fling the final goal in past the keeper.
