Kirkley & Pakefield 4, Histon Res 0
Kirkley totally dominated the match playing some superb one-touch football and coming out on top 4-0 with two goals apiece for Nathan Stone and Russell Stock.
This sets them up nicely for Wednesday night's Premier cup tie at home to local rivals Lowestoft Town.
This was Kirkley's 10th match in all competitions that they have kept a clean sheet and home keeper Woodcock was not seriously troubled at all against a shot-shy Histon Reserves attack.
It took Kirkley only three minutes to get off the mark when Liam Harvey-Cooper won a corner taken by Lewis Blois and converted by Nathan Stone.
On 21 minutess a deep cross by Chris Henderson was badly punched out by keeper Luke Howard and man-of-the-match Russell Stock pounced to slam the ball in from 10 yards.

Kirkley played some fast-flowing one-touch football which was epitomised by the third goal just after the break when Scott Manning set up flying winger Chris Henderson who beat three players in a mazy run and teed up Stone with a simple goal.
Kirkley kept their foot on the pedal and the fourth was made via a crisp lob into the box by Stone and the fox in the box Russell Stock did the rest, out-jumping keeper Howard.
This took Kirkley onto their sixth league win on the trot.
