Bognor are out of the Velocity Trophy after Bostik south east side Hythe came from behind to beat them 2-1
Tommy Scutt gave Jack Pearce's team an early lead and they retained it until the hour - before Jack Sammoutis levelled for the Kent hosts.
Zak Ansah got Hythe's winner eight minutes from the end, giving the Rocks a second cup loss of the season against a team from a lower division following their FA Cup exit at Sudbury a month ago.
It caps a disappointing eight days for the Rocks since their fine win at Tonbridge. They took just a point from home games against Folkestone (2-4) and Margate (0-0) before tonight's defeat.
They will aim to bounce back to form when they go to another lower-ranked side - Bracknell Town - in the FA Trophy on Saturday.
