A debut goal from Liam Adams wasn’t enough to save Stamford from defeat in Saturday’s EvoStik League Division One South clash at Loughborough Dynamo.
Adams, who has joined on loan from National League North side Boston United, had given Stamford the lead three minutes into the second period.
However, Loughborough hit back to equalise on 65 minutes through Alistair Smith before Karl Demidh put the hosts in front seven minutes later.
Paolo Piliero then wrapped up the 3-1 win for Loughborough in the 90th minute.
The defeat leaves Graham Drury’s side in 16th place ahead of Wednesday night’s trip to table-topping Cleethorpes Town who have won all six of their matches so far this season.
Free-scoring Deeping Rangers moved into sixth place in the United Counties League Premier Division after a thumping 5-0 away win at Sileby Rangers.
Charlie Coulson put Deeping ahead after 20 minutes with Scott Mooney doubling the lead before half-time.
Mooney added his second and Deeping’s third just before the hour mark with Luke Avis then making it four.
Coupland completed the rout in the 88th minute as Rangers extended their unbeaten run to four games.
Blackstones exited the FA Vase at the first hurdle after going down 5-1 at Eastern League Premier Division big guns Histon.
Stones found themselves two goals down inside the opening 10 minutes with the hosts adding two more goals before half-time.
Matt Simpson reduced the arrears five minutes into the second half before Histon added their fifth goal after 80 minutes.
Oakham went down to a 4-0 home reversal against Rushden & Higham in Division One of the United Counties League.
Stamford Lions saw their five match winning run ended after a 4-3 away defeat at Skegness United in the Lincs Junior Cup.
Luke Ball bagged a brace with Danny Sheehan also on target.
