Acle clung on to Premier Division top spot but once again they can feel their archrivals Blofield breathing down their necks.
Acle were held to a 1-1 draw by Reepham in the day's early kick-off match at Bridewell Lane after Ricky Forder's strike was matched by Ashley Dearing's.
Blofield took the opportunity to go level on points wth Acle after demolishing rock-bottom Hempnall 5-0, courtesy of a hat-trick from the prolific Chris Holmes and a brace from James Bulman.
Spixworth underlined their title ambitions, in what is shaping up to be the most open Sterry Cup race for years, with a 5-1 win at Loddon which leaves them two points behind the leaders in fourth place. Adam Ferguson, Charlie Bartram, Danny Brown, Jason Armes and Jody Cork were on target with David Sayer replying.
Four goals from Anthony Martin paved the way for Beccles Town's 6-1 demolition of Wymondham while Kirkley and Pakefield (Jack Herbert, Nathan Russell) and Mattishall (Nicholas Hook, Ben McCann) and St Andrews and Dersingham shared four goals in their matches. Daniel Jezeph bagged both goals for third-placed Dersingham while Jordan Rocastle achieved the same feat for Saints.
