St Ives 1 Ipswich 2

ON Sunday Ipswich travelled to St Ives to play in a re-arranged league match. Ipswich began the match similar with some high energy attacking scoring an early goal from an attack down the left slipped to Mille McWhirter who struck the ball firmly against the backboard.

Their second followed shortly after from captain Anni Broster from a ball crossed from the right.

Ipswich had a second half almost identical to Saturday's performance against Peterborough, making hard work for themselves and looking a little less composed than in the first half. However despite some aggressive play from St Ives and conceding a goal from a penalty corner, Ipswich worked hard to maintain the score line and secure another 2-1 win.
