There were few chances for either side in a goalless first half with Kirk Kidd and David Watts failing to get their headers on target for Eynesbury.
The second half was only four minutes old when the Hall Road side's goalkeeper Danny Workman needed to alert as he tipped Lee Purser's 20 yard free kick onto the crossbar.
Eynesbury responded well when Watts sent a glancing header wide and after Neil Morris and Tom Jolly combined down the right wing, the former could only watch as goalkeeper Louis McAllister tipped behind his shot.
On the hour mark Thrapston took the lead, much against the run of play. Ben Morgan was sent through and he slotted the ball into the corner of the goal beyond the reach of Workman.
Eleven minutes later Eynesbury were on level terms when Peter Collins scored from the penalty spot after Jolly had been hauled back by a defender.
Shortly afterwards Workman picked up a caution as he handled the ball outside the penalty area and from the resultant free kick Purser's shot was deflected behind for a corner.
As time ticked away Stuart Humphreys came close with his long range effort for Rovers but Thrapston scored the winner in the 89th minute when Morgan cut in from the right wing and fired an unstoppable shot into the top right hand corner of the goal.
# Eynesbury will look to get back to winning ways at Olney on Saturday.
