Division Two side AFC Tetford found Premier Division high fliers Spilsby Town too hot to handle in the second round of the Boston and District League’s Burgess Cup on Saturday.
Tetford produced a battling display but went down to a 6-1 defeat against a slick Spilsby side, who showed why they are clear of their rivals in the battle for the top flight title.
In the league last Saturday, there was no relief for rock-bottom Mareham United who lost 7-0 at fellow strugglers Pointon.
Mareham are still looking for their first win of the campaign and have leaked more than 120 goals in 15 games.
Coningsby Reserves were also on the wrong end of a heavy defeat in Division Two when they lost 6-1 at Boston College.
