Ryman League Division One North leaders Great Wakering had no answer to a fine attacking display by Lowestoft as the Blues coasted to a comfortable victory at Crown Meadow.

Lowestoft got an early breakthrough with an eighth minute goal from full-back Adam Smith. Matt Nolan was impeded just outside the area and although Louis Godwin-Green got his hands to Smith's free-kick he could not keep it out of the net.

Great Wakering looked for a quick response and Ty Benjamin sent Neil Richmond away down the inside right channel, but his shot from an acute angle hit the side netting.

Lowestoft were soon on the offensive again as Andrew Fisk released Gary McGee whose shot across goal was wide of the far post. Lowestoft increased their lead in the 32nd minute when Smith's high ball into the area saw Godwin-Green try to punch clear, but only as far as Jamie Godbold whose bobbling shot beat everyone to find the net.

There was almost a third goal for Lowestoft before the break as Neil Plaskett ghosted into the penalty area but his glancing header from Godbold's corner was just wide.

The best goal of the game came in the 50th minute as Lowestoft went 3-0 up. Plaskett's long throw was touched on to Godbold, who scored with a spectacular scissors kick.
