Wath on Dearne were beaten 45-29 by Yorkshire One promotion hopefuls Driffield at Moor Road on Saturday.
The visitors went 26-0 ahead early in the game before Wath even got off the mark.
Fly-half Adam West touched down to get his side on the board, and it seemed to wake Wath up as centre Andy Hopkin added a second try shortly after.
Winger Tom Quinn kicked the conversion, and then added a penalty, to narrow the gap to 26-15 at the half time interval.
In the second half, however, Driffield extended their lead with a converted try.
West added a second try shortly after, converted by Quinn, but the East Yorkshire outfit never looked like letting their lead slip.
They added a sixth try soon after, and a seventh ended any hopes of a Wath comeback.
Back row Gareth Webb did touch down late in the game, however, with Quinn adding the consolation points.
On Saturday, Wath travel to Heath - who are tenth in the Yorkshire One table.
They have lost their last three games and, as Wath are without a win in four, something will have to change when the two sides meet in Halifax.
