Halstead Town Reds 0, AFC Sudbury Blues 5

AFC did the double over the home side in the league this season and in doing so remain at the top of the league standings.

With the wind at their backs in the second half, AFC looked by far the stronger side. The first goal came following a corner clearance which was passed out wide to Luke Nicoll to hit a 20-yard shot which the keeper could only fingertip into the net. The second came from midfield and another 20-plus yard shot straight over the keeper. The third came from defence as Brandon Steele latched onto a ball just inside the home side's half and struck the ball so well that it hit the ground in front of the keeper and flew into the net. A solid perfromance from Dan New was rewarded with a tap in following good work from Steed, and then Harry Payne was put through on the right and took his shot early to fire across the keeper and into the far corner.
