BUNGAY Reserves progressed to the quarter-final of the League Cup with this convincing victory.
The Black Dogs dominated possession throughout, and could easily have doubled their score, as a combination of excellent goalkeeping and some wayward finishing kept the score down.
Bungay started brightly, and went a goal up after only eight minutes, Jimmy Bligh sliding in at the far post to convert a low cross. Bungay were finding plenty of space down both wings, and Ash Ling, Matt Holmes and Sam Olley all had efforts saved by the keeper.
You may also want to watch:
Ling's great free-kick beat the keeper but came back off the bar, and Bungay paid the penalty for their missed chances when the home side equalised with almost their first attack: a forward beat the offside trap and was fouled by Bungay keeper Gavin Lugo, and the resulting penalty was converted.
Bungay responded well and Ling scored twice in the final 10 minutes of the half, both times converting from Justin Doughty's low crosses.

Bungay continued to control the game in the second period, but they had to wait until the final five minutes to increase their lead, first Bligh getting his second from Ling's low cross, and then Dan Shimmon scrambling the ball over the line from close range.
