Stewarts & Lloyds 39
Huntingdon Stags 3
ALTHOUGH the scoreline was harsh, Stags could not take much comfort in a poor performance in which they posed little threat.
Stags conceded five tries - two in the final few minutes - and despite shading the possession scored only a penalty of their own at the other end.
In 10 league fixtures this season Stags have scored just 122 points, and with only two victories the threat of relegation is looming large.

Despite having the wind and slope in their favour, Stags were 8-0 behind inside 10 minutes, and although they pulled back three points, S&L dominated the rest of the fixture.
The second half was fairly even although Stags still lacked a regular threat, and the hosts ran in two tries in the last 10 minutes to give the scoreline a flattering look as Stags threw in the towel.
Huntingdon have two home games before Christmas and must look to secure at least one win to head into the new year with any confidence.
