Harleston Magpies 6, Blueharts 0
Harleston, sponsored by Hutton and Legg, welcomed fourth placed Blueharts to Weybread this week with their unbeaten win still intact. With Gill and Toulson missing the team welcomed Craig Snelling and Ben Wright to the fold.
After a convincing away win last week the team were in high spirits and came out of the traps flying, Andy Hipwell grabbing the first of the match with a well taken short corner. The second soon followed after good play down the left from Leate, Baynes and Sitch saw the ball transferred right where James Fanger unleashed a ferocious shot which flew over the keeper's head before he could react.
Blueharts started to come back into the game creating a 2-1 but pressure from Richard Harms ensured the shot was fired wide. Richard Ling worked like a Trojan up front chasing back at every opportunity to aid his defence.

With a minute to go before the break Magpies grabbed their third goal when Chris Barber powerfully deflected the ball in at the back post after good play down the right.
Magpies started the second half at the same pace, Sumner controlled the middle of the pitch allowing both wingbacks to advance up the pitch creating problems for the Blueharts defence.

James Wheeler added his name to the score sheet after a defence splitting pass from Wright found Wheeler sprawling at the top of the area to finally end his goal drought. Richard Harms was again tested at a short corner pulling off a camera save to keep the clean sheet intact. Despite the late pressure Harleston managed to score twice more Hipwell smashing the ball home on his reverse stick before Barber completed his brace to finish the scoring.
Harleston travel to Bedford next week looking to continue their run of high scoring games.
