Football: Peterbro 3 Leyton 0 0; Coca Cola FOOTBALL LEAGUE ONE.
Craig Mackail-Smith opened the scoring when he dispossessed Orient's Brian Saah and raced from the half-way line to beat Glenn Morris with a superb curling right-footed effort a minute before the break. It was an early bid for goal of the season.
Orient keeper Morris was helpless again four minutes into the second-half when Aaron Mclean controlled a Dean Keates free-kick before turning to hammer Posh's second.
Mackail-Smith poached his second and Posh's third in the 68th minute, squeezing the ball home through a goal-line crowd after Sergio Torres saw a shot blocked.
Sean Thornton almost carved out an Orient opening with a free-kick but Posh continued to pile forward with Mclean, Keates and George Boyd all going close in the final stages.
