After a 7 week hiatus, the Wapping ones were finally back in action with an away day to Ipswich. Despite the long break, the girls were optimistic, as Ipswich came in off the back of a defeat.
The game started with Ipswich keeping possession at the back and Wapping comfortable letting them sling it round. A fairly uninspiring and monotonous 30 minutes later, Lotta Paulus was party to a controversial shoving episode, which resulted in a green card, End of the half, 0-0.
Wapping came back to the pitch fired up, ready to take it to Ipswich. Despite winning a series of shorts in swift succession, Wapping failed to convert. A period of sustained pressure from the away team was finally rewarded, with skipper Lucy Todd slotting one in from a disguise ball from Aoife Smyth. 1-0, Wapping.
Play resumed and Ipswich came back strong. A stray stick resulted in Lotta obtaining her second card of the game. A short corner was awarded to the home side and it was slotted home. 1-1.
With tension mounting, the teams entered the final fifteen minutes. A slick short corner routine from the home side resulted in a goal. Final score: 2-1.
