Bury St Edmunds Ladies I 0, Lowestoft Ladies I 3
LOWESTOFT Ladies travelled to Bury with a strengthened squad, growing in confidence and passion, with every intention to deservedly remain in the East Premier Division.
Settling into the game early, Lowestoft produced some swift passing play and a sudden change of pace down the right hand side saw Charlotte Holland outclass her opposite number, passing to Mel Young, who picked out Nic Pollard to slide in the first goal for Lowestoft.
Never looking back, Lowestoft continued to pile on the pressure, with the midfield of Kate Trelawny-Gower, Charlotte Bond, Holland and Chloe McMorran breaking down Bury's passing game and skilfully creating chances for Lowestoft's forward line. It was from the creative midfield play that saw McMorran score Lowestoft's second, striking the ball from the top of the 'D'.

Pelicans III 3, Lowestoft Railway I 1
THE first half saw Railway strong in both defence and attack, but they were unable to place a shot on target.
The forward line of T Gillingwater and G Randleson were unable to convert many clear-cut chances to open the scoring.
With Railway pressing, Pelicans took advantage of the situation and drove forward in force with C Ward and his defence unable to stop their first shot, just eluding the diving Railway keeper.
With Railway still not being able to find the final pass, Pelicans broke away again to make the score 2-0.
With half time approaching a well-executed Railway move involving most of the team was coolly finished by A Deveraux.
After half time Railway made their normal slow start, which invited pressure from the Pelicans forwards and this resulted in a controversial goal being awarded.
The introduction of R Trindall into the midfield assisted in relieving the pressure and put Railway back on the attack.
The last 15 minutes saw Railway encamped in the Pelicans half moving the ball well but not being able to hit the target with countless chances.
