Ipswich East Suffolk III 6 Felixstowe IV 1

With Felixstowe winning the push back it appeared that they would give IES trouble and indeed in the first few minutes they probed the IES defence several times.

However, they were repulsed and the tide of the game quickly turned in IES's favour. Graydon Webb scored the first two for IES with Gary Wardman-Browne slotting a third home in from the right at a tight angle.

After half time and against a lowering sun, IES continued to give Felixstowe no quarter. Richard Marston scored a deserved goal having battled gamely throughout the game with Neil Slade putting a fifth home from an even tighter angle than Gary Wardman-Browne's previous effort. It left many of the Felixstowe players bemused as to how the ball actually found the back of the net.

Felixstowe scored a consolation goal, from a penalty corner, which was beautifully flicked into the top of IES's net after the ball had rattled around the IES 'D'.

IES not to be outdone consolidated their position in the dying minutes after being awarded a penalty corner for a crude tackle in front of goal. The ball was struck against the keeper by an accurate strike from Dave Charles and with the ball breaking free, Neil Slade was in exactly the right position to slap the ball home a foot from the goal line.
