Though chances were fleeting throughout the first-half, the game was still a lively one as the respective midfields battled for supremacy. The visitors has the best chance early on, but some alert work from Ian Pledger in the Soham goal kept the scores level. Soham's first real sight of goal came after 20 minutes when Scott Carter nodded over following an incisive run from Callum Reed's cross.
Romulus might have taken the lead on the half-hour mark when confusion between keeper Ian Pledger and Thomas Liberatore allowed a Romulus striker to space enough to fire goal-wards.
Fortunately for the Greens however, the striker's effort sailed inches over the bar.
Hipwell was once again at the forefront of proceedings minutes before half-time when he met a cross from Charles Libam at the far post but the front-man failed to keep his header down and the scoreline remained deadlocked.
The pattern of play continued much the same after the break with both defences coming to the fore.
Liberatore had the first effort of the half but his close range effort was astutely blocked after the ball had broken loose from a corner.
Michael Simpson went closer still just a minute later but his header sailed high and wide when the midfielder should arguable have done better.
The Greens pressed for a breakthrough in the latter stages and had the lion's share of the play, but the resilience of the Romulus defence was commendable and neither keeper was unduly troubled in the dying minutes.
WAS THIS SOHAM'S BEST DEFENSIVE DISPLAY THIS YEAR?
