Scole United 1, Wells Town 4
AT Ransome Avenue the Seasiders got the league points they needed to stop a poor run.
Town included Jim Edwards in the starting line-up after some impressive performances for the Reserves. Wells found themselves in the driving seat straight from the first whistle with Edwards causing the home defence all sorts of problems with his darting runs.
It was from Edwards the first goal arrived. A neat flick found Tom East who slotted home after only eight minutes. A good three-man move involving Edwards, Daniel Grocott and Craig Rutland ended with Rutland placing his shot out of reach of the home keeper on 12 minutes.
And minutes later Edwards turned from provider to score his first senior goal for Wells when he found space to slot home past the stranded keeper.
Scole reduced the arrears prior to the interval with a solid header from Lee Ruddock from a flag kick.

Second half the Wells defence stood firm, and the match was killed off as a contest when Joseph Harrison placed his shot into the corner of the net.
Peczkowski was unlucky when he tried a long-range shot that flew just over the bar.
