TWO second-half goals gave St Ives their fifth straight home league victory - and condemned their visitors to a fourth consecutive defeat.

Saints trailed 1-0 when Cogenhoe's Steve Diggin netted shortly before half-time but Lloyd Howard equalised just after the hour mark, latching on to a Graeme Thackray through ball.
