BUNGAY Reserves moved back to the top of Division Five on goal difference with a decisive away win on Saturday, beating Attleborough Reserves 5-1.
After conceding early on, they levelled before the break, and then dominated the second half to run out comfortable winners.
The Black Dogs started brightly, Joe McFarlane and Matt King both finding plenty of space on the wings. Both had efforts that were saved, as did Ainsley Baynes, but it was the home side that went ahead after nine minutes.
Bungay continued to press, Baynes and King both going close before the equaliser came after 26 minutes, Gregor Gibson finishing well after being put clear by Baynes.
