Half time: 3 - 0

Kick off: 14:30, Saturday, February 9 2019

Cranes went top of the league albeit with 3 games played more after a powerful first half blew Grundisburgh away with a gale behind them. A great move & finish after just 2 mins,Thrower cushioned a ball out to Leggett just inside the box & his 1st time cross was swept home by WOOLARD. Thrower's excellent ball put Blades in, whose shot was cleared off the line by Gibson. Jennings flashed a half volley just wide & Johnson made a fine save to deny Blades low down. Blades volleyed just over from Thrower's great ball & then Woolard's back pass was short & Hobson was clear through but took too long & got crowded out. Leggett's 25 yard shot was well saved by Johnson plucking the ball from under the bar. On 23 mins Thrower's ball dissected the visitors back line & WOOLARD slotted past Johnson. Leggett smashed a shot against the crossbar & Fike headed onto the bar & then headed home but fouled Johnson. Roper's pass found Leggett whose low cross was converted by BLADES at the back post. Steward's cross found Cook, who should have scored but Foster made a great point blank save from his header. Thrower's weaving run ended with Johnson making a brilliant save to deny him. 2nd half more even & the wind died down, Thrower shot over when well placed & Blades shot got deflected just wide before Johnson made another great save to deny Fike & Davison got through but dinked wide.
