SUPERB attacking play from Ely City saw them secure a comfortable 4-2 win over Harwich and Parkeston at the weekend.
The Robins were dominant through the encounter with the league's basement side and were able to score at will as they're opponents struggled to cope with the pace and movement of frontmen Robbie Mason and Scott Fielding.
Boss Denis Lightning, said: "I predicted this would be a tough game and Harwich set up on the day determined to get a point.
"I thought we dominated play going forward and we could have scored at least a few more goals."

Despite making most of the early running, Ely were hit midway through the first-half by a sweeping breakaway goal from the visitors, who have only a single point to their name so far this term.
The setback served only to galvanise the home side however, and they were soon back on terms as some neat work on the edge of the box allowed time and space enough for Adam Dalby to smash home from 12 yards.

Ely took the lead form the penalty spot shortly after the break as Brady Stone was felled on a foray into the box. Tony Beck drilled home the subsequent spot-kick.
Two shortly become three as the ever-improving Scott Fielding added to his tally for the Robins with a close range finish after good work from Adam Dalby.
To their credit, Harwich stuck to their task manfully and managed to find a way back into the game with a breakaway goal just after the hour mark to make it 3-2.
The Robins weren't troubled by the setback though, and wrapped up the points with five minutes to go as Beck netted his second of the game from close range.
Ely play host to Woodbridge Town in the FA Vase on Saturday with the club hoping for a big crowd to push the team on to the national stages of the competition.
