Ipswich V 12 Sudbury IV 1

Ipswich V continued to dominate their division with a thrashing of Sudbury IV.

The visitors' mixture of youth and experience wasn't quick or perceptive enough to penetrate a confident Ipswich backline, apart from through one very well worked penalty corner.

A typically sluggish start saw Ipswich playing without a great deal of shape but the passes soon began to string together nicely and it wasn't long before Simon Godbold scored the first of his four goals.

Most Read

The next two minutes saw Ipswich lose the lead then immediately regain it through a move worthy of a far higher division, with Garry Scarff perfectly timing a run onto a perfect Godbold through ball to slot home.

The by now infamous, and legendary, fox in the box George Payne then showed why he is the most feared striker in the league by lashing home two more goals to ensure a comfortable lead at half time.

The highlights of an Ipswich dominant, if at times over-casual, second half included the Sudbury captain side footing home a corner-flag bound reverse stick effort from Fox.

Ipswich are now nine points clear in the promotion slot, with things looking good ahead of the trip to third placed Norwich City.
