Meanwhile, St Ives Reserves had an excellent win in the Scott Gatty Cup, beating Yaxley 1-0, who had defeated Saints in last year's final.
Saints dominated the play and capitalised in the second half when Ian King finished off a good team move with a fine volley. Callum Mackay was named man of the match and Saints now face a semi-final tie against Fletton Reserves in February.
St Ives' first team welcome struggling Yaxley to Westwood Road on Saturday and face a trip to Stewarts & Lloyds Corby next Tuesday.
