Old Southendians III 3 Ipswich East Suffolk IV 2

Ipswich East Suffolk IV were left disappointed after their trip to a grey, wet coast.

IES started brightly and could have taken the lead from a swift, flowing move down the right in the opening minutes. The visitors then contrived to leak three goals in the first half.

The OS keeper earned his corn time after time as IES peppered his goal with shots both from open play and from penalty corners. Then, in the last minute of the first half, a penalty flick was awarded which Keedle converted off the inside of the post.

Two goals to the bad starting the second half, IES never believed that that they could lose the game. They played some of their best hockey of the season as they continued to attack the OS goal, both building attacks and breaking quickly from defence. Despite sustained pressure, OS defended heroically, including a chest high save on the line by the last defender following a reverse strike from Whiting.
