The main battle of the day was in the midfield, with both Fiona Moran and Ellie Mason putting in sterling performances down the right and left respectively.
A well-organised Peterborough side kicked off the scoring that, not for the first time this season, unsettled the Ipswich side who then found themselves two down.

However, IES picked themselves up and came back fighting, pushing into the Peterborough half and forcing several penalty corners that resulted in Debbie Thorpe popping in IES' first goal.
The second half saw keeper Faye Godden once again making some great diving saves to keep IES in the game but it wasn't long before Peterborough got their third goal.
Undaunted, IES bounced back with an exceptional move down the left hand side that resulted in Sapphire Cutting outwitting the keeper for IES' second goal.
A few minutes later, Peterborough's fourth goal sealed the game but IES can take a number of positives into next week's home game against St Ives.
