Lowestoft III 3 Felixstowe II 2

The visitors arrived at the game with only eight players and knew they would have a somewhat difficult and defensive game.

However, Suzy and Jenny immediately took the game up the pitch and with clever stick work and determination they tested the Lowestoft defence.

The home side however, took every opportunity to break out and frequently swept thru the centre of the pitch to challenge Felixstowe's defence.

Lizzie, Millie, Eli and Nan showed focus and strength to keep the attackers frustrated. Their first goal was scored after their only short corner off the match.

The second half began in the same vein with the visitors attacking at every opportunity, again the pressure paying off with a goal by Suzy.

With the game now at 2-2 both sides were determined to take the three points.

With 15 minutes to go Felixstowe's Suzy was hit across the nose and was sadly sidelined for the rest of the game.
