Jez Hall, joint manager of St Ives with Warren Everdell, described it as a "freaky game."
"I was very pleased with the game as it was a good win. We've lost one in 15 now so we're doing very well and can start looking upwards. We're not worried about anyone," he said.
"It was very annoying to keep conceding so soon after we scored. To be fair to them they were the best attacking side we have played against all season. We switched off at times and allowed them to score but we had our chances and fortunately we put enough away.
"In the second half we had them penned back, and we were definitely the better team. We beat them 8-2 at their place in August, and we haven't let in more than one goal for a long time now so defensively we're still quite strong. It was just one of those days, a very freaky game."
The Ives now sit fifth in the table and next play Newport Pagnell Town on Saturday.
