Mark Paul then twice came close to closing the gap for Yaxley before top-scorer Kuhne nearly scored with an ambitious overhead kick.
It was Town's turn to make an error next, a poor clearance giving Yaxley a chance to level the scores.
Saints keeper Steve Young was tested early in the second half and it took a reflex clearance from defender Russell Lawes to save St Neots.
Walker then nearly scored another at the other end as the tension built-up.
But it was Yaxley who got the breakthrough four minutes from time to disappoint Town.
