Ipswich V 2 Felixstowe IV 2

Felixstowe started this game rooted at the foot of the league table with no points and finding the back of the net hard to come by with a difference of minus 18 goals.

The visitors turned in the performance of the season though with an exemplary display of counter-attacking hockey, the like of which wonders how the previous week's opposition managed to score six against this disappointing side.

Ipswich, as usual, started very well in this game, quickly settling into their familiar short passing game.

The much feared striker, George Payne was in fine form, leading the front line with fine skills and deft footwork, however it was U18 midfield maestro Andy Mays who fired the home side into the lead half way through the second half.

A feisty and very vocal Felixstowe side struggled to contain the robust Simon Godbold, but managed to counter attack with a goal against a defence that was missing inspirational captain Howard Walker through injury.

The second period saw Peter Glading roll back the years with two goals in quick succession to put the home side in a commanding position.

This spurred Felixstowe into action and they applied their greyhound like strikers to good use and finally pulled two goals back to draw this fiercely contested derby match.
