Some excellent early link-up play between the strike partnership of Matt Burden and Paul Muchal lead to Muchal firing an angled ball past the hapless goalkeeper. Muchal soon doubled his tally, roofing the ball into the net after another quick passing move.

A series of threatening short corners from the home side eventually culminated in Jack Entwistle lifting the ball over the keeper to make it number 3.

The away side fought hard and were not to be denied a goal themselves, capitalising on a loose ball in the Felixstowe D.

With a 3-1 lead at the break, skipper Nick Smith then urged his team to up the tempo and make sure of the win to keep up their undefeated record.

Felixstowe then proceeded to dominate play in the second half and the relentless pressure lead to more short corners, one of which was converted in style by Alex Woodhouse with a trademark drag flick.

The visitors gave themselves a fighting chance by scoring another quickly afterwards but it was to be in vain as Burden took his chance to make it number 5 after some indecision in the Lowestoft defence.

This was soon followed by another good attacking move between the two strikers, allowing Burden to stab home number 6, adding deserved gloss to the final scoreline.
