Craig Hammond, last week's acquisition from Histon, made his debut, boosting Mildenhall's injury-hit strike force, and this allowed Matty Clements to wreak havoc from the wing.
Clements set up the first goal in the 20th minute, when he delivered a low cross to Goddard who drilled his shot through a crowded box and into the net.
Clements won a penalty, soon after, and Goddard confidently sent the 'keeper the wrong way to double the home side's lead.
Hammond twice came close to scoring on his debut, either side of half-time; firstly he fired a shot over and, in the first minute of the second half, he smashed a spectacular over-head volley into the underside of the crossbar.
Mildenhall goalkeeper Ben Nower remained completely untroubled for the remainder of the match as the home side went on to dominate and pick up a more convincing win than the score-line suggests.
But big away wins from the top two teams, Wroxham and Needham Market, meant that Mildenhall dropped to third.
