Rory Parker, Alex Dyson, James Anderson and James Turner all produced good passages of play but the final action of the half brought St Ives three further points from a penalty and a half-time score of 17-10 to the visitors.
The second-half began with a great break by Greg Southgate enabling Antony to score his second try. This was quickly followed when Anderson's break led to Josh Hall's first try for the club.
These quick tries took the game out of St Ives' reach and Stags sealed the win when man of the match Anderson and Turner combined to allow Smith to score his second, leaving the visitors 32-10 winners.
n St Neots U12s played two tight games against Hitchin, drawing one and narrowly losing the other.
In the first encounter Saints went a try behind early on but battled back well to level just before the break with an Amber King try.
The second half started in similar fashion to the first with St Neots going one try down from the restart but King was on hand to drive over to level the scores before the final whistle. Lewis Medlow converted both tries making the final score 14-14.
In the second game, Saints were soon struggling as Hitchin crossed the line three times against a hesitant defence.
George Peacock narrowed the gap before Ben Tyler scored a try but another lapse allowed Hitchin over. Cameron Brown got in on the act with a try which was followed by Medlow's third successful conversion.
St Neots went all out for victory but could not force a winning score as they went down 24-21. The Saints man of the match was Jon Thompson.
