When IES did break through the midfield, steadfast defending from Hannah Tallent, Fi Moran, Sam Bennett and Kate Watson in defence kept them channelled to the sidelines, with good calling from Claire Gould in goal recently returned from injury.
Ipswich entered the second half determined to extend their lead. They pressurised the IES 'D' from the start with excellent work rate from the whole team and were rewarded with a goal from Anna Sherring who have found herself one-on-one with the keeper and calmly found the far post. After another spell of attack Ipswich won a series of penalty corners, increasing their lead to 4-1 through a

points and are looking to secure a further 3 points when they travel to Wisbech this weekend.
