DEPLETED St Ives slumped to another five-goal home defeat as their FA Vase hangover continued.
Joint-manager Jez Hall praised his side for sticking to their task but admitted they were beaten by the better side.
"In the second half we pressurised them for long periods and although we didn't deserve a win the score was a bit unjust," he said.

Boston took an 11th minute lead and were three-up by half time as Saints struggled.
The home side looked lively in the second half but were hit by a sucker punch just before the hour. Will Fordham pulled a goal back but Boston made it five late on.
St Ives had at least recorded a win on Wednesday when they beat Huntingdon Town for the second time this season.
A single Barry Albone goal in extra time at Jubilee Park was enough to settle the game in Saints' favour as they booked a place in the Hunts Senior Cup semi-finals against Yaxley.
Hall said: "We didn't want extra-time with all the games we have got coming up but full credit to Huntingdon, who played some excellent football and were a credit to Darren Young and his staff.
"The team put in an excellent display at the back with Dan Newman, Jason King and Will Fordham having to be at their best.
"Rob Mackney was outstanding between the posts and we had him to thank on several occasions."
