Match 1: King’s Lynn v Soham

In the second half it was much of the same with Lynn seeing plenty of the ball, however they were unable to convert the chances created. Soham then found the net on a couple of occasions in quick succession, taking them into a 2 – 1 lead. Soham then played tactically and ran out the clock to give them the win from the first match.
