With five minutes remaining Bevis stroked home his second of the game from the spot to put Rovers top after a game between two good sides.

In 1B, Bell Inn returned to the top of the table after a 4-3 victory over a vastly improved Spixworth Sunday Res, whilst a goal from Jacob Dorman earned Ribs Rovers a point at Unicorns after Scott Starling had opened the scoring.
A goal from Dave Bailey wasn't enough for 2A bottom side Eaton Young Boys against league leaders Deopham who recorded a narrow 2-1 (Kane Wetteland two) win. Oli Smith and Sam Page scored for Brooke as they won by the same score at New Buckenham and Bungay Town hammered 11 without reply at The Cottage.
