Harling took the game to Bradenham. A fortunate shot from Ben Chase made it 1-0 then he crossed for Chris Haney to head home. Just before half-time Andrew Morris scored from 25 yards.
The second half saw Chase score two to complete a hat-trick and Stuart Chrystal lobbed the keeper from 35 yards.
East Harling visited Hempnall Reserves and lost 2-0.
The early kick-off did not suit Harling on Easter Monday and they were a goal down after 10 minutes.
But from then they had the better of possession but spurned several good chances.

Just before half-time a misplaced pass gifted a second to Hempnall.
Harling continued to press but never had the sharpness to convert possession into goals and Hempnall deserved the win.

East Harling Reserves beat visitors Saham Toney 1-0.
Having lost 10-1 at Saham earlier in the season there was a determination from the home team that this would not be repeated. Saham had the better of possession throughout the game but Harling were well organised by Steve Bowles at the back and restricted Saham to a few half-chances.
In the second half Harling played well on the break and after failing to convert two chances Chris Bray was third time lucky with a neat header from a fine cross by Ryan Williams.
Jess Brown made a great save on the one occasion when Saham was clear through and a fine defensive header by Rob Bushell in the last minute denied Saham an equaliser.
This was a great effort by Harling, especially the youngsters in the side. Man of the match was Steve Bowles.
Harling Reserves visited Shipdham and for the second time the hosts beat them 3-2.
A promising first half where Ben Garwood had put Harling ahead saw Shipdham equalise just before the break from a disputed penalty.
However, the second half belonged to Shipdham who deservedly scored with 15 minutes to go, then unluckily Ben Morgan headed a corner clear for it to rebound off a Shipdham head into the net.
Darling then pressed for the last 10 minutes and Peter Blades headed home for 3-2.
A minute from time Blades scored from a rebound and as the players prepared to kick off the home linesman still had his flag raised to indicate offside so Harling did not get the equaliser but, in fairness, did not deserve it.
Harling's last two games are April 18, Hingham away, 2pm kick-off, April 21 Bridgham at home.
