A FINAL day of the season title decider is still possible, as Mildenhall reduced Wroxham's lead at the top to five points.
While the leaders were held to a surprising 1-1 draw at Stanway, a second-half Liam Harrold hat-trick helped 'Hall make light work of fourth-placed Lowestoft.
Ali McKenna forced two early saves from Mildenhall stopper Ben Nower, but the hosts went ahead in the 16th minute when Paul Miles latched on to an interception and gave the Wroxham 'keeper no chance with a drive from the edge of the box.

Darren Cockrill almost equalised when his header crashed against the crossbar, but Craig Hammond made it 2-0 just before half-time with a close-range finish.
Harrold stole the show in the second half. His first strike came from a penalty, won by Matty Clements, and he made it 4-0 when he collected a Hammond pass and lobbed the goalkeeper.
The hat-trick was sealed with a stunning volley after Hammond's cross, 10 minutes from time.
Defender Simon Head completed the scoring with a close range header after Aaron Rutter, recently signed from neighbours Soham, provided a perfect cross.
If Wroxham lose their home match against CRC on Saturday and Mildenhall beat Dereham away, then Mildenhall would secure the title with a home victory over Wroxham in the final match of the season, on May 5.
