The first goal was fed by Emma Lake for Helen Larwood to finish off. The score remained 1-0 into the second half. Peterborough came back stronger putting the Buckenham defence under a lot of pressure but the defence along with the goalie kept them at bay. Buckenham managed to break through and attack once again resulting with two goals coming from Michelle Williams.

A series of penalty corners dominated the start of the match as Sprowston exerted constant pressure on the Buckenham defence. They were rewarded with two goals from open play in quick succession.
Despite more attempts and penalty corners the Buckenham defence held firm and the forwards started to look for ways through the experienced opposition.
The second half was more evenly matched but, even though they kept the upper hand, Sprowston failed to score again. Buckenham finished well with all 16 players in the squad making a strong contribution.
Player of the match went to Susan Lansdell.
