Colchester Ladies 1 Lowestoft Ladies 2
Colchester travelled to Lowestoft and were determined to come away with the points.
It was an even start with both sides contesting every ball but as the half wore on it was the home side who gained the upper hand which resulted in them scoring a break away goal when a Colchester penalty corner routine broke down. It was a better second half for Colchester and through hard work and disciplined play they began to put the home defence under pressure, Helen Barnes coming closest to evening the score with some very determined running up front.

Colchester were awarded many penalty corners which they were unable to convert, denied by some desperate defending and some fine saves by the Lowestoft keeper. However, Colchester showed great character and kept pushing forward until the last five minutes when Anna Foley took a free hit outside the Lowestoft circle and found Rose Prince lurking on the right post to deflect the ball into the net, much to the delight of the away side.
