Sutton started well pushing onto St Ives in the first few minutes, making some great tackles and runs down the left and right wing.

On 10 minutes St Ives had a breakthrough. This didn’t stop Sutton, the defence stayed strong playing some excellent balls out to the midfield and attack and they pushed forward but were not successful. Lorraine Wallis, making some great saves, kept the score down to 1-0 at the end of the first half.

In the second half Sutton knew they had to attack hard. St Ives took the first short corner, which Gemma Parr made a superb save on the goal line deflecting it away from the goal.

Then Sutton had their chances via a couple of short corners but were unfortunate not to score. Long Sutton PoM in a great team effort was Lorraine Wallis.
