Huntingdon suffered last-gasp agony as they were condemned to defeat by a final-minute try yesterday.
Stags suffered a fourth successive reverse in Midlands Division One East as they went down 22-21 at Wellingborough.
Damien Whales’ men had earlier led thanks to tries from Dan Malem and Billy Bates.
Malem also kicked three penalties and a conversion before being one of three Stags players to go off injured – Nick Vallance and Wayne Bradley were the others.
St Ives remain bottom of Midlands Division Three East (South) after being beaten in a basement battle at Rugby St Andrew.
