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.
Bungay took the lead a minute into the second-half, Baynes converting a penalty after he was pushed in the area. King shot just wide from Pete Fuller's pass, and then King again skimmed the bar from Gibson's cross.
At the other end Bungay had a let-off when a home striker fired just wide after outpacing the Black Dogs' defence.

Bungay increased their lead after 74 minutes, Baynes' scuffed shot beating the keeper at the near post. The visitors sealed the win with further goals from substitute Billy Bligh (his first touch on his debut for the Reserves) and King.
