Disappointment for Black Dogs
TWO second-half goals brought a disappointing end to Bungay's match against Wymondham as they had looked the more likely to win for much of the game.But they were unable to make their greater possession count, and the Rooks scored from their only two real chances of the night, both well-struck efforts from James McCloy.

And early on Miles Clarke brought a good save from the keeper with a low effort, and then a good forward move from Mark Shipley saw the keeper make an even better save from a fierce volley from Ash Ling.
When Wymondham threatened Craig Hunting made a great tackle to cut out danger, but Bungay were putting together the better moves at this stage without creating any real openings.
A good move involving Ling and Joe McFarlane saw a cross just out of Billy Bligh's reach - a good illustration of how things were going.
Early in the second half a good cross to the far post saw McFarlane head just wide, and the same player won the ball 20 yards out and sent in a great low effort that the diving keeper palmed away with one hand.
From a long throw by Shaun Payne McFarlane's back-header ran just wide of the far post.
Wymondham remained dangerous going forward, but it was against the run of play when they scored with 15 minutes left as Bungay failed to clear properly and when the ball fell to McCloy he took a touch and drilled a shot past Long from 12 yards.
And as Bungay pushed forward for an equaliser the visitors broke down the left and McCloy scored with another clinical finish from an angle to seal the win, though Clarke and McFarlane were not far wide of the mark with late efforts.
Bungay: R Long, M Shipley, C Hunting, S Payne, D Lowe, J McFarlane, P Hunter, M Clarke, M King (J Doughty), A Ling (T Oxborough), B Bligh (S Wightman).
