Lowestoft Railway I 1, Holt Harlequins 1

LOWESTOFT Railway faced a strong Holt team in this division 4NE match played at Kirkley High School.

Holt started the game well taking control with a goal, midway through the first half thanks to some lacklustre marking at the back.

Railway did manage to respond with a cool finish from the in-form Gillingwater.

Railway could have been behind again before half time but for another fantastic penalty flick save from man mountain Holden.

Railway tried hard to push on from this but they struggled as a team to string together any kind of possession.

The game continued in much the same vain in the second half with Holt controlling possession only to be repelled by the mostly tight defence of Ward, Simmonds, Sturley and Murray.

Railway did start to impose themselves in the final 20 minutes and could have snatched victory from a short corner routine with Randlesome, Trindall and Gillingwater all having opportunities to finish.

Lowestoft Railway II 3, Harleston VI 1

RAILWAY notched up their first league win of the season against a well drilled Harleston development side.

From the push-back Railway took control of the game with a disciplined display of tight marking and sharp tackling.

Playing with only ten men, Railway created numerous chances for lone striker Sam Daniels, getting a good supply of passes from the midfield.

After having a goal controversially disallowed early on for the shot being struck from outside the D, Daniels continued to pressurise the Harleston defence creating a simple tap in for Simon Harris.

Alex Kleyn then scored two extremely well taken goals to increase Railway's lead further.

Harleston reorganised themselves better for the second half and made their numerical superiority count, but Railway maintained their discipline and only conceded from a short corner late in the game.

121 Driving School MoM: Alex Kleyn.

Next game tomorrow against Sudbury, meet KHS at 2pm.
