Wokingham's five-match unbeaten run came to an end on Tuesday night as they crashed to defeat at the hands of Thame.
Wokingham started brightly with Dean Thomas having an attempt deflected away to safety, but Thame responded with striker Louis Coucdice breaking free but hitting the side netting when one-on-one with Garry Aulsberry.
Wokingham soon started to raise their game, and created many decent chances.
Tom Hopper headed just wide from a corner, Adam Cornell forced Thame keeper Mike Higgs into a save of the highest order, while Luke Lee had a penalty appeal turned down when the striker was seemingly foulded by Matt Hall.
Thame started the second half on top as Ben Connolly had a great chance to give his side the lead, but his attempt was very well saved by Aulsberry.
Even though Thame were very much on the attack, things still weren’t quiet at the other end, as Wokingham were creating more opportunities, but couldn’t find anyway through.
Cornell’s effort went inches wide, while from a James Rusby throw in Hopper’s header was finger tipped over the bar by Higgs.
Thame then took the lead, as with quarter of an hour to go Louis Coucdice’s cross found Dan West whose header found the bottom right hand corner.
With the 90 minutes were approaching, Wokingham pressed forward but left gaps at the back, gaps that Thame were able to capatalise on.
Hitting their vitisors on the counter attack, Thame doubled their lead in the dying stages as Coucdice converted from a few yards to secure the three points.
The Sumas will be looking for a return to winning ways on Saturday when they host Highworth Town in the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup at Larges Lane.
