Felixstowe III 0 - Lowestoft Railway II 1
Penalty Corner Strike Enough For Railway To Take Points
Railway claimed maximum points on their travels to Felixstowe on Saturday, doing just enough to earn the win.
Unlike in previous weeks, Railway made a slow and tentative start to the game, not helped by some careless and wayward passing.
Fortunately for Railway, bottom of the table Felixstowe didn't take advantage of the visitors lacklustre start and the game remained goalless at the interval, with chances few and far between at either end.
Railway regrouped at half time and with a few adjustments to the line up, made a much stronger start to the second half.
Peter Newham and Ollie Payne began to link up on the right hand side and suddenly Railway looked more of a threat pushing forward.
Jonny Ward and John McNamara started to unsettle the Felixstowe defence by making runs and testing them with their pace.
Eventually Railway were rewarded for their efforts and made the breakthrough, when Ollie Payne powerfully drilled the ball inside the post from a penalty corner to give the visitors the lead.
The game flowed from end to end with Felixstowe using the long ball to counter attack, but the Railway defence of Peter Newham, Kevin Barnard, Matt Eagle, Keith Wright and Carl Rix played out the rest of the game with no alarms.
