Bungay Town 2, Long Stratton 3

STRATTON made two changes to the side that beat Holt last week, in came Kaine Challen and Stephen Blunt.

Stratton started on the front foot with a high-tempo hard- working game and pressed Bungay back but it wasn't until the 38th minute their superiority was rewarded with a goal, Shaun Flint crossing for James Barnes to leap and head home.

STRATTON made two changes to the side that beat Holt last week, in came Kaine Challen and Stephen Blunt.

Stratton started on the front foot with a high-tempo hard- working game and pressed Bungay back but it wasn't until the 38th minute their superiority was rewarded with a goal, Shaun Flint crossing for James Barnes to leap and head home.

A minute before the break it was so nearly 2-0 Flint creating the chance for Paul Folkard to hit a post.

Stratton begun the second half exactly the same, Chris Bartram heading over the bar and Folkard scuffing a shot when clean through.

In the 65th minute Bungay broke through the visitors defence to equalise, the scores remained level for only three minutes though as Barnes drilled a shot low into the net.

Flint was causing all sorts of problems down both channels and made it a hat-trick of assists when his corner was headed in by David Robinson to make it 3-1 with nine minutes left. Bungay scored right at the end to give the scoreline a flattering look but Stratton were well worth the three points and are now into the top five.
