Friday night saw Ipswich take on a strong Norwich team at RHS.
Ipswich started off the match well and we’re unlucky to go a goal down in the early stages. A couple of very well worked man up attacks from Ipswich evened up the game and allowed Ipswich to advance onto a lead of 4-2 at the end of the quarter.
The second period saw the Norwich team become more competitive meaning any goals scored in the quarter were cancelled out by the opposition. 8-6 at half time.
The third quarter was again very closely contested with both teams attacking well. Ipswich were however more clinical with their opportunities and finished the quarter leading 11-8.
The final quarter became a far more dominant display from Ipswich. A good use of the Ipswich subs and a tiring opposition meant that the game was seen out comfortably. Final score 18-9.
Overall a very good performance from everyone involved. Strong and organised defending for the most part and a clinical edge to the attacking was great. Also a fantastic man-up conversion rate for the match which is something we’ve struggled with in the past. Fantastic game management in the latter stages as well to control the game with the ball in our possession and then use it effectively.
