HARLESTON got back to winning ways in the league with a comfortable 6-1 win at low-ranked Mattishall Reserves.
But they started badly, soon a goal down when a needless free-kick was given away and keeper Steve Bartrum saw his wall split down the middle to allow the ball to nestle in the net.
A period of sustained pressure saw the score draw level when a clearance rebounded back to Green, who rounded the keeper to net.
Town had their noses in front when a surging run from Dan Burrett led to a one-two with Green before Burrett picked out Matty Goreham to superbly smash the ball home.

Harleston's defence line stood strong all half and enabled the team to drive forward, and more sustained pressure led to Harleston extending their lead. Dan Burrett went on another trademark surging run and after a goal-mouth scramble he drilled the shot in.
Keeper Bartrum was called into action a number of times in the second half.

Sam Wilby wheeled away from his marker and a through-ball found him in full stride to produce an exquisite finish over the keeper. He got on the score-sheet again with a lob.
The icing on the cake came when, with centre-half Ryan London scored what must be a strong contender for goal of the season. He unleashed a blistering free-kick 30 yards out with just enough dip to graze the bar and nestle in the net. Harleston next host lowly Wells Reserves.
