THE top-of-the-table clash between Harleston Town and North Walsham Reserves certainly lived up to its billing.
In a match where Harleston needed to win to have a chance of winning the league they just fell short, losing 4-3.
Harleston started off the stronger of the two sides and after 20 minutes the outstanding Paul Bliss completed a nine- pass move with an absolute thunderbolt into the net. The lead was short-lived as a player from Walsham was left totally unmarked to head home.
The second half saw Harleston take the lead again, this time Matt Goreham won the ball in the air and Bliss netted for his second goal.
