Godmanchester benefitted from an own goal to square the match, but just minutes before the break Cornard were awarded what appeared to be a harsh free kick and re-took the lead.

The second 45 minutes saw Rovers fail to break down the defence of Cornard who appeared happy to hold on for the points.

Ten corners and unbroken pressure on the Yarmouth goal by Rovers was not enough to find the net and the Norfolk side took the points.
