St Albans saw what would have been a huge victory in their battle to beat the drop from London North West Three snatched away from them by Stevenage Town inside the last 10 minutes.
The 26-22 reverse leaves them four points above the drop zone, with Cheshunt below them having a game in hand, although the two bonus points secured at North Road could yet prove crucial.
Saints made high-flying Town fight all the way and after conceding the opening try, Brent Lemiere scored their first and Adam Jasinski put them in front.
Things switched round again by half-time as Town scored two more tries, one converted,
But George Elliott scored and converted a try to drag Saints to within two points and when Jasinski ran in an interception for the fourth try, victory was in sight.
