A slow start from the hosts saw Bedford take the lead after 13 minutes before Megan Todd levelled the score 6 minutes later.
As the half progressed Acle started to dominate and Todd completed her brace 7 minutes before half-time, then Kate Pasque headed home in the 41st minute to give Acle a 3-1 lead. There was still time for Todd to score her third in added time to send Acle into the break firmly in control at 4-1.
Todd was on the scoresheet again 10 minutes into the second half before Bedford pulled a goal back on 68 minutes.
Acle's keeper was helped off the field after sustaining a knee injury and striker Brister took her place between the sticks. Ciera Flatt scored her first goal for the club converting from the penalty spot, before Bedford made it 6-3 shortly before the full-time whistle.
