Litlington Athletic 5 Saffron Crocus Reserves 2

LITLINGTON continued their unbeaten league campaign running out convincing winners against a strong Saffron Crocus side.

In blustery conditions Litlington dominated the first half and took the lead after 15 minutes when Andrew Orten scored from close range after a goal mouth scramble.

Despite their dominance Litlington couldn't convert any more of their first half chances and moments before the interval their opponent's scored into the top corner.

Litlington knew the second half would be a real test into a strong wind but continued to dominate with quick fast flowing football.

Orten soon smashed home his second of the game and moments later James Evans released Afser Choudhury who coolly slotted home to give Litlington a two goal cushion.

Saffron then scored their second of the game with a well taken goal but were forced to play the rest of the game with 10 men after a cynical foul on Litlington's Paul Harris from kick off led to a red card.

Harris then got his revenge after slotting home from the free kick, and a little later James Evans tapped in Litlington's fifth and final goal of the game.
