Bungay started brightly with constant pressure on Halesworth's goal but were eluded by the woodwork and the goalkeeper until Eva found her way through to slot the ball in to give Bungay the lead. Halesworth started to find their feet and progressed into the Bungay half although did not pose much threat. Bungay were able to push into the Halesworth half frequently and had many chances with Rosie hitting the bar before Eva scored to give Bungay a 2-0 half-time lead. Bungay started the second half where they left off, maintaining the pressure on goal and were soon celebrating Eva's hat-trick and Bungay's third. Bungay passed the ball around well and were in total control of the match. Frankie was unlucky not to score when her neat chip cleared the goalkeeper hitting the top of the post; fortunately it rebounded out for Rosie to tap-in to make it 4-0. Bungay's defenders Chloe, Charlotte and Megan pushed well into the Halesworth half even having chances to shoot. Soon after Eva again broke through down the middle scoring to give Bungay a 5-0 lead. Halesworth scored a late consolation goal to leave a final score Bungay 5, Halesworth 1. An excellent display from Bungay with all players having their best performance of the season. This result pushes Bungay up to third. Next match away at Swanton Herons, Sunday.

Ollie and Max played some nice football to give Harry another chance to shoot forcing another save. Wasps defence was pressured as Gorleston passed effectively to create numerous threats. Dan blocked a direct shot at goal and Gorleston won the corner. The ball was played in and bobbled around dangerously before being bundled over the line on nine minutes.
