ACLE were on their Anglian Combination Premier Divsion travels for the fourth successive game. Conditions were ideal for the game which saw the visitors on the attack from the word go.
With play mostly confined to the middle of the park it was Acle who were the most creative as any attacks the Owls made were confidently coped with by the excellent Daniel Foreman marshalling his defence of Harrison, Faulks and Nobbs - with Scotts' handling in goal improving with every game.
Crosbie and Nicholls in midfield snuffed out any attacking ideas the Owls had and found time to support the front men and create chances with some fine one-touch football that has come to be synonymous with Acle's play under the guidance of manager Tony Ward.
Thomson and Morgan worked a neat one-two to send Holsworth away but his centre just evaded the head of Ben Morgan. A clever free-kick routine then saw Morgan hit the woodwork and Holsworth pull his opportunity agonisingly wide of the target.
Ben Morgan who put Acle ahead from the penalty spot after Medlar had handled in an effort to clear the ball after 44 minutes.

The second half brought more of the attacking game from Acle and they went further in front. Dean Crosbie broke out of midfield and delivered a brilliant cross-field centre into the area where Nathan Thomson
out-jumped English and
Neale to send a stunning header into the corner.
Acle's third of the game came with time running out and the floodlights struggling to lighten the gloom. The ball was half-cleared to where Damian Didwell was standing some 30 yards out. He hit a first-time 'dipper' over the stranded keeper's hands into the empty net.
Four successive games away from home and four wins, including a Norfolk Senior Cup victory at high-flying Ridgeons outfit great Yarmouth Town stands Acle in good stead for the difficult period ahead.
Tomorrow, Blofield away.
