Tynedale blew resilient Newbury away 40-26 - but still leaked four tries to hand the National League One relegation battlers a vital bonus point.
After botching chance upon chance before slipping to defeat at Stourbridge last weekend, Tynedale were desperate to end their home season in style.
And while they got off to the perfect start, those errors more than crept into this contest to allow the visitors a handle they should never have had.
In the Northern Alliance Premier Division, free-scoring Seaton Delaval had Stephen Howes (2), John Fitzpatrick and Jordan Fry on target at Stocksfield - but still lost 5-4.
The home side, who had midfielder Michael Henderson deputising in goal for the injured Peter Adnitt, edged it with efforts supplied by Dave Below (2), Wayne Stewart, Pat Finnerty and Graeme Hudspith.

The official opening of Stocksfield Station Car Park took place today with an exhibition afterwards in SICA. Well done to Year 4 Broomley First School who have been involved with the station yard improvements and for their wonderful display of stories, models and plans all relating to the station and rail travel. As part of this project they have visited York Railway Museum courtesy of Northern rail. In addition to the children's contribution, there was information and photographs on the history of the station and the Tyne Valley Line which also celebrates its 175th anniversary this year.

Businesses around Hadrian's Wall have been picking up tips to add value to visitors' experiences of the area - and hopefully, boost tourism spending in the North East. Karen Dent reports for nebusiness
As a World Heritage Site, Hadrian's Wall and the surrounding area is bang on the global tourist map. But now businesses in what is known as Hadrian's Wall Country - a corridor stretching from Wallsend in the east to Ravenglass in the west - are aiming to give them a bit more information and retain them in the region for longer.
A series of workshops have been building up business owners' knowledge of the area, from Roman culture to the geology of the Wall corridor, so they can pass that knowledge on to tourists.
Stocksfield and Walker Central's Pin Point Recruitment Northern Alliance game at Walker's Monkchester ground ended in 1-1 draw.
Michael Lamb fired the Central into an early lead, but their goalkeeper then had to leave the field with an injury.
Stocksfield's shot-stopper Peter Adnitt also had to be carried off before the break, but they retained their composure and a good strike by Scott Johnson had the visitors back on level terms.
Walker team boss Mike Jeffels, hoping for a top-two finish to facilitate a step up to the Northern League, is looking over his shoulder rather than eyeing a third successive league title as they have played three more games than their rivals.
Stocksfield is showing off its ÃÂ£90,000 station improvements next week and is inviting people to have a look around.
Stocksfield railway station now has additional car parking and improved accessibility. An event will be held on Monday, April 26, at noon with a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by an exhibition in Stocksfield Community Centre from 2pm-6pm.
The exhibition will include a display of photographs of the station and the Newcastle Carlisle Railway over its 175-year history.
