Wroxham saw their hopes of chasing down Thurlow Nunn Premier Division leaders Stowmarket suffer a dent as they were held to a 1-1 draw against Brantham Athletic.
But the Yachtsmen may view it as a point gained being as they had to rely on Jeremiah Dasaolu's last minute strike to rescue a draw after Brantham had taken a first half lead through Sean Gunn. Jordan Southgate's side are now 15 points behind Stowmarket, who beat Haverhill Rovers 3-0, but do have three games in hand.
Gorleston were on the wrong end of a nine-goal thriller as they lost 5-4 at home to Godmanchester Rovers thanks to a last minute penalty.
Peter Lambert put the Greens in front in the 19th minute but Rovers hit back to lead thanks to goals from Andre Williams and Josh Dawkin. Joel Watts restored parity in the 36th minute before Gianni Caconne made it 3-2. Connor Ingram netted to once again draw Gorleston level in an all-action first half. A Ross Munro free kick put Godmanchester back in control but back came Gorleston who looked to have secured a point thanks to Eddie Short's 75th minute leveller. But there was drama in the last minute when Michael Hyem was brought down in the penalty area and Munro fired home the winner from the spot.
Sam Carter got the only goal of the game as Swaffham Town claimed a good win at Hadleigh as a Cameron Russell penalty gave Kirkley & Pakefield victory at home against Whitton United.
