Eastern League Cup Semi Final - Norwich 9 - 16 Ipswich

Sunday night saw Ipswich travel to Norwich hoping for a win which would take them through to the Eastern League cup final.

The match started off evenly, with both teams creating some chances. Ipswich opened the scoring but Norwich came back into it and replied quickly, utilising their large pit attacker well. The first quarter finished 4-3 Norwich.

An early Norwich goal in the second quarter increased the home sides lead, but Ipswich were growing into the match and started using the ball better in attack, scoring 3 times without conceding to get right back into the game. Half time score of 7-7, with the match finely poised for the second half.

The third quarter was dominated by Ipswich, who had worked out how to neutralise the threat from Norwich and were playing well. This extended the lead out to 10-8 at the end of the third quarter.

In the final period, the home side began to slow down and found it very difficult to put Ipswich under enough pressure to get back into the match. Ipswich were able to control the game, using possession wisely and making it count, scoring 6 while only conceding once.

Great performance by everyone and a well deserved win against potentially tricky opposition! Defended well throughout and managed the game perfectly in the second half to secure a massive result!
