Skegness found an extra gear after a change of personnel in the last few minutes and slotted in twice.
Ipswich 4, LSHC Men’s
Sutton knew it was going to be a tough afternoon against promotion-hunting Ipswich.
Sutton played on the counter attack and created some good chances and Fyson came very close to opening the scoring. Ipswich broke the deadlock with the last touch of the first half.
The second half was similar to the first with Ipswich finding it tough to break a dogged Baguley, Belding and Taylor. Ipswich scored their second and then in the last 10 minutes were gifted another two from a tiring Sutton.
LSHC Men’s 2nd 4, Ely City 2nds 1
Bottom team Ely visited Long Sutton on Saturday but the first half was a forgettable affair, with the highlights being the well-taken Ben Shore finish from a good run from Luke Jackson and some good defending from Stef Fox filling in for the absent Matt Holmes.
After half-time Sutton’s pressure told and short corners were won; with Shore finishing twice.
Ellis continued to drive the midfield with support from Gavaghan and it was another mazy run from the veteran, who crossed in for Oldfield to deflect in his first goal for the seconds.
LSHC Men’s Third 1, March 2nds 2

Jack Smith levelled the scores in a great game.
LSHC Mens’ Fourth 1, Grantham 1sts 4
