Diss Town's start to the season went from bad to worse as they suffered an embarrassing 7-0 defeat at home to Godmanchester in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.
Mike Derbyshire's men slumped to their eighth defeat of the season to leave them rock bottom and wondering where their next point could come from.
In contrast Norwich United continued their excellent start to the campaign with a 2-0 at Wivenhoe thanks to Ben Thompson's brace.
Kirkley & Pakefield claimed an impressive 2-0 win at Ipswich Wanderers as the Royals continue to show improvement from last season under boss Jamie Godbold.
It was the Kirkley player-boss who set them on the road to victory with a smart finish in the 65th minute after the visitors had spurned several chances. Ipswich piled forward in search of an equaliser and left themselves open at the back resulting in Kyle Baker sealing the points for Godbold's men in injury time.
