Sudbury II 3 Christchurch II 2
After last week's disappointing display Christchurch put in a spirited display against the league leaders and were unlucky to lose by the odd goal in five.
Mel Fulcher epitomised the team spirit by playing on with a jarred back and neck after making a brave stop in goal early on in the match.
In the first half Christchurch's defence neutralised the potent Sudbury strike force, while at the other end, Natasha Last gave the visitors the lead with a firm strike.

Sudbury fought hard to get back into the match but it was not until well into the second half that goals from Debbie King and Alison Alcock gave them the lead.
With Lenore Devenish-Meares closing down the angles, the Christchurch midfield held Sudbury at bay and with ten minutes to go Joyce Jay belied her years with a skilful run down the right wing before cutting inside to score an impressive solo goal.
