Sunday 5th March
HMS Temeraire, Portsmouth

The ISFA side, playing together for the first time, adapted well to a difficult surface and played some fine passing football, opening the scoring after a shot was saved and, in the ensuing scramble, the ball was poked home by Matt Pickering.  Frustratingly, the Navy equalised on 23 minutes with their first clearcut chance of the game but Calvin Kissi soon restored the lead and ISFA went in at half-time 2-1 ahead.

ISFA spurned a chance to go further ahead early in the second half when they had a penalty saved by the Navy goalkeeper but Ethan Radus eventually added a third for ISFA with a clinical left foot finish.  The Navy had a chance to reduce the deficit in the closing moments, hitting the crossbar from the penalty spot, but 3-1 was a fully justified result.
