Benhall St Mary continued their great start to the SIL Senior Divison season with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Haughley United.

Three second-half goals allowed ‘The Badgers’ to maintain their 100 per cent record in the early SIL Senior Division standings.

Haughley threatened in the first half, with skipper Reece Golding seeing his fine run and shot superbly saved by Darren Warner.

But Benhall got into their groove in the second period, with captain Chris Sillett heading in, after some fantastic Tom Mower work, just seconds after the restart.

Other opportunities came and went for the visitors, before Tom Winter, fresh from a hat-trick against Wenhaston in midweek, fired into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Haughley were then reduced to 10 men after their centre-half elbowed Mower off-the-ball, with the Benhall man booked for his retaliation.

Full-back Ryan Eagle added the third and final goal with a delightful shot that curled into the far corner, as Benhall prepare to take on defending champions Achilles next week.

Elsewhere, in a game littered with mistakes, Bramford United saw off Grundisburgh 3-2 at home. Taylor Bannister gave the home side the leda after just eight minutes, but Bramford struck back as a Luke Moss own goal and Zac Eales cross-cum-shot put them 2-1 up.

Kieran Mandley levelled matters from the spot on 70 minutes, before Josh Lytees won the game seven minutes later.

Henley Athletic enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 away win at Crane Sports.

After Henley keeper Hindley had saved a first half spot kick, Henley took control after the break as Tejano fed Clark Bruce, who beat Holland at his near post to make it 1-0.

Cranes pushed hard for the equaliser but the Henley defence held firm and they increased their lead after 28 minutes of the half as Ross White headed home a rebound from six yards.

The game was made safe after some spectacular skill from Josh Caraccio set up to White bag his second.

Finally Capel Plough beat Westerfield United, with goals from Shaun Webb and Danny Garrard.
