English Women's Hockey Cup Second Round - Ipswich 10 Bury 0
SUNDAY saw Ipswich play a much-changed team as they welcomed East Premier team Bury St Edmunds to Tuddenham Road for the second round of the cup.
Determined to put on a professional display, Ipswich started the game on fire. Moving the ball at a pace the Bury team will not have encountered before, Ipswich carved the visitors apart and scored their first goal through Miriam Fabregas within 30 seconds. The home team then added two more in as many minutes - Leisa King scoring both and before Bury knew what was happening they were 3-0 down.
Ipswich then dropped the pace and despite creating some good chances could only add two more goals before half time, with Sarah Daley scoring in the 17th minute and Jess Bloom in the 22nd. After some good points made by assistant coach Clare Ferguson, standing in for Royce Waters who was playing for the Men down in Bristol, Ipswich started the second half with a determined attitude. Within five minutes the home side had again torn the visitors apart and extended their lead to 6-0, with Emma Millar scoring her first of the game. With Bury tiring, Ipswich kept piling forward and clinically moved towards double figures. Lizzy Aldous added the seventh goal before Bloom scored her second in the 46th minute to make it 8-0. Defender Issy Sheldrake was moved up front and within minutes had scored the ninth goal. Ipswich eventually scored their tenth goal when Emma Millar deflected in a cross to score her second of the game. Ipswich could have had more but the game ended with that score line. Ipswich will now face another regional side, this time South Division One side Wimbledon in the third round at home on Sunday October 21.
