It was unlucky 13 for Lowestoft as their 12-match unbeaten run in the Premier Division came skidding to a halt at CRC.

The Blues slipped to a 3-0 defeat as goals from Sam Ives, Jordan Patrick and Adam Marriott handed the Cambridge side a comfortable win. Lowestoft remain top, but their lead now stands at just three points, as second-placed Wivenhoe closed the gap with a 5-1 mauling of King's Lynn reserves.

Third-placed Dereham also moved closer to the leaders courtesy of a 4-0 win at struggling Harwich.
