No such good news for Golfers Arms as they failed to take advantage of a home tie, losing 6-0 to the students from UEA.
Gunton completed the clean sweep for the first division over the second division when they defeated Great Yarmouth Peelers 5-1 in the outstanding Wiltshire Cup tie as Ashley Leggett grabbed a hat-trick and Gareth Wright netted twice.

Lacon Arms recorded a third straight win as they appear to be coming to terms with the top flight. Del Salmon scored a superb hat-trick and John Hughes also notched twice, Chris Austin also scored with a header and David McWilliam got the seventh to wrap the game up.

Great Yarmouth International secured their second win, 4-0 against Tramway who are still adjusting to life in Division One.
Albion (GY) remain top of Division Two with a 100 per cent record following a 3-0 win at home to MK United Reserves with goals from Sam Welch, James Hogbin and Johnny Bowles.
Shrublands remain second despite conceding first against Gorleston Wanderers through Jason Rowe. Shrublands equalised through Steve Gates. Shrublands went ahead through a well struck shot from outside the box from Jason Thompson.
Second period Shrublands finally got hold of the game and Danny Glover netted from the spot after Aaren Howarth was brought down. A further two goals from Thompson, and one from Adam Baisley saw Shrublands end 6-1 winners to remain level on points at the top.
Paperclip are third after a 6-3 win at home to Martham A despite the visitors taking a first-half lead which was cancelled out by Grant Lloyd before the break. Lloyd added a second and with P Botten also netting twice, Simon Beales and an own goal completed the scoring.
A 5-0 win at home to Prostar Windows lifted Hemsby Reserves to fourth spot. Heading towards half-time Hemsby were awarded a free-kick just outside the box which was converted by Lewis Hannant.
Second half Hemsby continued to battle hard and on the counter-attack went 2-0 ahead through Rory Gook. Hemsby continued to play good football and went further ahead through Gook. Heading into the final 25 minutes Hemsby went 4-0 up from a corner which was deflected in by Gary Chaplin. Gook completed his hat-trick with a free-kick following a back pass which the Prostar keeper picked up: result 5-0.
A solitary goal from Ryan Tozeland was enough to earn Great Yarmouth United all three points at home to South Yarmouth while Carpathians broke their duck with a 2-1 win at home to a depleted Norfolk & Chance. Luke Spall gave Norfolk & Chance after 14 minutes and despite Carpathian's possession they could not convert this into chances against a resolute defence, whereas the opposition looked dangerous on the break.
Carpathians equalised from a corner when a David Greasby challenge resulted in the loose ball falling to Leeroy Ray, who hit the ball home.
Carpathians found it difficult to breach the visitors' defence until Steve Ward made a difference when he came on as substitute with more penetrating passing and eventually Carpathians took the lead on the hour mark through Owen Beevor. Despite never looking totally secure Carpathians held on for their first points of the season.
All clubs are reminded of the earlier kick off this week.
