Littleport Town 4 Chesterton Eagles 1
Littleport were forced to defend as the visitors applied early pressure.
A quick break, however, saw Sean Monigatti put clear and he confidently beat the advancing keeper.
Poor finishing meant the lead was not extended until just before the interval, when Monigatti again raced free and guided home his shot via the far post.
The visitors renewed their efforts in the second half and, after striking the bar, they were awarded a penalty following a foul by Rob Wilson. The keeper redeemed himself by saving the kick.
Soon after, a mistake in midfield allowed a visiting forward to drive a shot inside the far post and cut the deficit.
With 15 minutes left, a Chesterton midfield player was sent off.
The home side took advantage and within minutes Monigatti completed his hat-trick from close range.
As the final whistle approached, Dan Bell broke through the visitors' defence, rounded the keeper and then rolled the ball past two despairing players into the net.
Littleport: Rob Wilson, Chris Brown, Tom Evans, Matt Fuller, John Kelly, Luke Williams, Lee Fuller, James Elliott, Dan Bell, Sean Monigatti, Jamie Birston, Sam Males, Adam Ellertson, Ryan Middleton.
