Wroxham continued to dominate possession, but Borough had appeared to weather the storm until 38 minutes when a three goal spree before half-time secured the three posts.

Connor Deeks sidefooted home to double the advantage, before Sam Pledger added a second after turning Casey Phillips in the penalty area and then Deeks scored the fourth before the break.

Ben Fowkes added a fifth on 57 minutes, before Shaun Taylor added a sixth with 20 minutes left.
