Foulsham 4, Sprowston Wdrs 1
Foulsham bounced back from their Norfolk Junior Cup quarter-final defeat to record an emphatic victory over promotion rivals Sprowston Wanderers and maintain their undefeated record in Anglian Combination Division Two.
Simon Prior opened Foulsham's scoring in the 13th minute when his high cross into the penalty area was completely missed by the Sprowston keeper and went in the top left corner of the net.
Sprowston equalised seven minutes later when, yet again, the Foulsham defence didn't cope with a set piece and the clearance was returned for a Sprowston player to score from a close range scissor kick.
Foulsham's Craig Hagon had a superb solo effort ruled out for offside but made amends on the stroke of half-time when he beat the keeper with a composed finish.
Foulsham scored two further goals in the second half through captain James Woodhouse and midfielder Richie Young.
