Division 6NE - Ipswich V 2 Felixstowe III 1

IPSWICH looked to build from last week's win and clean sheet by improving their overall game performance. This was achieved with a hard fought 2-1 win over Felixstowe in the East Men's Division 6NE.

Ipswich welcomed back both Simon Godbold and Colin Sneddon after a long lay off and it was Sneddon who fired Ipswich into the lead early in the first half with a goal, the likes of which is unlikely to be repeated. Sneddon collected the ball just outside the Felixstowe D, drove on and unleashed an unstoppable shot from an acute angle that hit all uprights before nearly breaking the net.

Alan Barker made it two shortly after with a precision shot beyond the flailing arm of the keeper. Ipswich were controlling the play well but a lapse in the defence allowed Felixstowe to pull a goal back on the break.

The second half saw Ipswich continue the good play, but, at times, they were too intricate in front of goal. The home side were down to ten men with 20 minutes to go when David Mann damaged ankle ligaments, but Ipswich continued to force the pace. Felixstowe thought they had scored to share the points at the end but Ipswich keeper Joe Wroe leapt like a salmon to push the ball around the post.
