St Neots continued their Midlands Division Three East (South) surge with a third successive victory last Saturday.
A 32-12 triumph against Stockwood Park at The Common was their most emphatic display of the campaign so far.
Saints were stung by two early tries, but Stuart Whitelaw launched a recovery that was continued by player-coach Johnny Berwick as Saints closed to within two points – 10-12 – at the interval.
And it was all about the home side in the second period as they powered to glory with Callum Austen’s try completing the turnaround.
Whitelaw then laid on another score for Tom Beech and he was also the provider of a fifth Saints try as Joe Woodgate galloped in from halfway.
