Third versus second in the league saw Woodbridge exit the Suffolk Premier to Ipswich Wanderers

With Alfie Stronge and Kade Ivatt Cup tied a good performance from the visitors with vets keeper and ex first team stopper Gary Rose impressive in goal.

Paulo Coelho's cross was well parried by Rose after 2 minutes. The visitors took the lead after 8 minutes when Evan Bolt's excellent free kick beat home keeper Craig Brand in off the bar. Coehlo's powerful shot after 21 minutes tested Rose and his cross after 37 minutes went over the bar. Just before the break Anton Clarke's effort was again well parried by Rose.

Thomas Maycock's shot was blocked after 46 minutes and from the rebound Clarke made it 1-1. Taylor Southgate appeared to be fouled inside the area after 65 minutes but appeals for a penalty were turned down. Southgate's superb through ball after 67 minutes was met by Luke Mallett and his shot went wide of the post. The hosts took the lead after 72 minutes when Joel Glover's effort from the left wing deflected over Rose and it was 2-1. Jamie Eaton-Collins was denied by Rose after 85 minutes and Andy Crowe's shot missed the target after 87 minutes.
