Late in the first half, Richard Ellis put Norris clean through and he finished the move off in style.
The unpredictable bounce on an uneven playing surface contributed to a scrappy second half.
Injuries stripped the Saints of Davies, Gary Stuart-Neal and Danny Goodchild who had only just returned from injury forcing the Saints to play the last 10 minutes with only 10 men but the Saints held out.
St Peter's: Barnes; Gauthier, Wiltshire, Jones; Davies (Goodchild), Stevens, Stuart-Neal (Mardle), Eames; Norris, Ellis, Lee.
