Ipswich collect a comfortable victory
Eastern Counties 1 - Ipswich YM 35 Wisbech 21
IPSWICH YM collected a comfortable victory in a hard-fought match.
An early YM mix-up saw a Wisbech centre take full advantage, kicking the ball through under the YM posts and following up to score a try.
On 18 minutes the YM pack stole the ball and it ended in the hands of full-back Sherifi, who scored in the corner to make the score 7-5 to Wisbech.
YM came away with the only other points of the half with two well-taken penalties from Elliston, so making the half-time score 11-7 to YM.

Wisbech hit back straight after the resumption, but then YM were awarded a penalty. The hosts decided not to go for the posts, and instead put the ball in the corner for a line-out. This proved a great decision with YM winning the ball and, after four great drives, centre Elliston powered over to score.
YM pinned Wisbech in their own half and a great steal from Potter saw the ball find the hands of the captain, Terblanche, who broke the Wisbech defence to score under the posts. Elliston gave YM a 23-14 lead.
