Norwich United clinched all three points with an injury time penalty from Andrew Claydon.
Claydon sent Cudworth the wrong way from the spot after Darren Coe had been brought down in the box. The Planters had twice before seen appeals for a spot kick turned down after Claydon twice appeared to be brought down.
Felixstowe had taken the lead after nine minutes when Matthew Stace hit home from a deep corner with the Planters hitting back a minute before the break with Tom Youngs heading home Steve Shipley's cross at the far post after good work by Claydon and Lee Hunter.
The Planters took the lead three minutes after the break when Matty Robinson sent Claydon free in the box, Claydon squared for Ricci Butler who hit home from 10 yards. Felixstowe looked to have stolen a point eight minutes from time when Adam Hampson levelled after a good move down the right was hit home at the far post only for Claydon to secure victory in the first minute of stoppage time.
