Ipswich East Suffolk 5 Bedford Town II 0

After the previous week's fun in Norwich, when IES smashed their hosts for eight goals, a potential banana skin against the lower placed Bedford Town team, who they'd previously beaten 7-0 earlier in the season, was a mouth watering prospect.

Missing Tuitoek through injury but welcoming back Gooderham in the defence, IES were blessed with some excellent umpiring decisions throughout the first half.

The home side opened the scoring early through the irrepressible Marshlain, who placed the ball past the hapless Bedford keeper.

Centre back Kevyn Brown made it five goals for the season with a deflection after his penalty corner ejection came back to him, and IES led 2-0 with little efforts from the visitors, leaving Lane with little do in goal.

The second half saw a much improved Bedford side make more show of their position but their wayward passing and poor communication allowed IES to score two almost identical penalty corner strikes from top scorer Scott Cole.

Cole dispatched both through the Bedford keeper's legs to make it three and then 4-0.

IES' final goal came from Jones, who snuck in to the back post to receive a neat pass from Cole after a Bedford penalty corner was cleared and two touches later the ball was in the net.

IES face local rivals Ipswich this Saturday at Henley Road - 11.30am start.

IES Squad: Lane (GK), Brown, Peck, Jones, Short, Blake, Mayhew, Gooderham, Borwick, Downey, Cole, Taylor, Klug, Marshlain.
