There were two yellow cards for the home side for Cameron Lines and Richards-Farr, but they battled through the periods with 14 men to win comfortably.

"We were very clinical in the first quarter of the match and effectively killed the tie off," said joint coach Dave Macfie. "But I'd like to pay tribute to Chelmsford as they kept going and put in a very spirited performance."
