Long Stratton Res 0-7 East Harling …

Long Stratton Res 0-7 East Harling
The first team made the short journey to division 3 side Long Stratton Reserves in the 1st round of the league cup looking to build on last week’s win over Acle in the league.
The greens welcomed back a number of players that had missed the previous weeks victory and this showed as they immediately took the game to the hosts.
Bareham saw his turn and shot hit the Base of the post and then saw a header flash narrowly wide.
Dolan then saw an effort crash into the side netting before Senior somehow missed the target when put clean through on goal by Morris.
The opener finally came on the half hour mark as Senior was adjudged to have been bought down in the box after a jinking run.
Bareham stepped up to dispatch the penalty for his first goal of the new campaign.
The goal seemed to drive the visitors on and soon after Bray added the second, a superb Holland ball in saw the winger ghost past his man to delicately touch the ball into the far corner for his 4th of the season.
A few minutes later and it was 0-3, skipper Durrant rising high to head home a Scent delivery despite a brave effort on the line to keep it out.
No changes in personnel at the break and also no change in the pattern of play as the greens continued to carve open the home defence.
A Dolan pass found Senior who in turn glided past two defenders before slipping a perfectly weighted ball through to Bareham to slot home the 4th into the bottom corner.
Allin was then bought on in place of Holland at right back.
The home sides best opportunities would come from the skippers long throws but Woodcock was superbly guarded by the solid defence and hard working midfield in front of them.
Durrant soon had his 2nd of the game via another Scent corner and Bareham nearly had his hattrick but blazed over from just inside the box.
Hobley and Allin were now beginning to join the attack at will as the home side struggled to cope with a rampant visiting side hungry for more goals.
A Hobley cross saw Bareham head narrowly wide a Scent free kick was unfortunately too straight and comfortably saved.
16 year old Josh Underwood then came on in place of Dolan who was suffering with a dead leg picked up in the 1st half.
The youngster got straight to work by chasing onto a through ball to finish powerfully past the keeper only to see the offside flag raised.
Durrant then completed his hattrick when a Scent delivery was not cleared well and Morris found him with a deadly inswinging cross to glance a header into the far corner for 0-6.
Sivier then replaced Laws in defence.
The final goal came when Underwood did well to race past a defender but his shot was well stopped only for the defender to touch the ball into the empty net as Underwood was about to pounce on the rebound finishing a miserable afternoon for the home side.
In all a clinical performance from the visitors who now head into next week’s junior cup tie with AFC Longham with more confidence.
Well done all…….
