The visitors were more competitive in the second period with Coby Barder demonstrating neat footwork, but any chances they had were dealt with efficiently by the home team's defence.
Reepham sealed the win with a goal from Mark Gaskin on 70 minutes to make it 4-0.
Martin Failes in the Robins nets had little to do and he did it without error, whilst Nathan Nichols in the Downham goal
was very busy as Reepham could have and should have scored another four.
Meloncauli Rose Reepham man of the match was Kevin Winkworth whose composure shone through.
This Saturday the Robins are home to Oulton Broad. 2pm kick-off.
