The first five minutes saw two goals, one for each team, with UEA opening the scoring with a turn and shot that Lane could not see. Instantly, IES replied through Billy Tuitoek and a scrappy reverse stick shot.

It was all IES from there, with Nick Aveling scoring from a penalty corner rebound, then David Taylor added two more after good passes from strike partner John Tingey.

With it 4-1 at half time, UEA came out the stronger after the break, pressing the IES defence for a good ten minutes, but with no direct shots. IES capitalised through Kevyn Brown, who scored after receiving a penalty corner pass back to slot home.

Pete Francis celebrated his call up to the first XI with two further goals, cutting in from the left to scoop in a one handed reverse stick shot, followed by a open side shot from the same side.

Tingey, who had a classy game with six assists, ended the rout to claim the eighth, turning and firing a bullet like shot in past the keeper.

IES travel to Ely City on Saturday in hope off building on this result.
