Harling hit goal trail against Loddon

East Harling carried on from the previous week’s good performance at Harleston and dominated early proceedings against second-placed Loddon.

Harling should have gone ahead through Pat Armes, but his shot just cleared the bar.

Midway through the half Harling seemed to lose their way and it was no surprise when the visitors broke away and scored a fine goal.

This woke Harling up and they dominated again and were unlucky when Ben Chase saw his shot go inches wide.

Then a hand-ball gave Harling a penalty which Paul Mieczek cooly slotted home.

Manager Mark Dolman had strong words at the break and the home side came out a different team and really took hold of the game.

Good work by Calvin Gibson and Ben Chase down the left resulted in a great cross which Danny Fowler smashed home.
