Godmanchester continued to apply pressure and Osborne's lashed finish saw him mobbed by delighted team-mates as Rovers clinched their first league win since September 2.
Delighted joint manager Hurst said: "This win has been a long time coming, we knew it would come but it is a great relief to get it.
"We played some excellent football at times and it really showed that for the first time this season we were able to name an unchanged line-up.
"Now we have to look to build on this win - five of the next six games are at home so hopefully we can pick up some points and move off the bottom."
Godmanchester faced a tough looking trip to Swaffham in the Ridgeons Division One Knockout Cup last night (Tuesday) and are without a game at the weekend.
