In East Men's Hockey League Premier A, Dereham's search for their first points of the season goes on after the conceded two late goals against former National League outfit City of Peterborough.
Rob Turner went close for Dereham in the first half while Sam Plater and Will Edwards did likewise after the break.
Peterborough broke the deadlock eight minutes from time through a short corner.
Keeper Tom Vaughan kept out the first shot, but the rebound fell to a Peterborough forward who was able to push the ball home.
With little time left, Dereham pushed for an equaliser, but were caught on the counter attack as Peterborough made it 2-0.
