AFTER a tremendous victory against last year's main competitors, Harleston travelled to Peterborough to try and build on their excellent start to the season.

Both teams began the game well without creating many clear cut chances. As Harleston started to dominate, they created a well-worked opportunity which Wheeler managed to pull wide from short distance. Eventually they found the opener through an expertly executed short corner from Andy Hipwell. Harleston controlled the play, pressing for the second, which was provided through another well worked short corner routine ending with Chris Barber flicking passed the sprawling keeper. Magpies tried to push on pressurising the Peterborough defence and creating some great opportunities but they were unable to improve on their advantage before half time.

Both teams started the second half strongly with end to end action. With Peterborough pressing high, trying to get back into the game, gaps were left in their defence and halfway through the second half Harleston increased their lead through Andy Hipwell who slid the ball under the advancing keeper for his second after a fast break. Soon after this another flowing move from Magpies resulted in their final goal, after Sitch's rampaging run forward which then combined with Andy Hipwell to allow Richard Ling's ferocious shot to be deflected into the path of Tom Sumner who finished from close range. This sealed an emphatic 4-0 victory for Harleston leaving them four wins from four games.
