Southwold suffered a frustrating afternoon at Woodbridge in the final of the Suffolk Cup.
Having had a solid season in London Three North East, the visitors were hoping to pick up some silverware but returned home empty-handed after losing a tight match 18-15.
It was a surprise defeat, with Woodbridge plying their trade at the lower level of Eastern Counties One, although the visitors were missing key players.
Southwold made a dreadful start to the final, conceding straight from the kick off, but they were only 12-10 down at the interval following tries from number eight John Mayall and prop Adam Smith. The visitors managed to sneak ahead in the second half when James Barton registered their third unconverted try but two penalties from Woodbridge proved decisive.
Southwold are without a game this weekend while Lowestoft & Yarmouth travel to Harlow.
