A good effort was well saved by Barnes before skipper Ross Wiltshire cleared off the line only for the official, a good 20 yards away, to award the goal much to Saints’ dismay.
Wiltshire was then red carded for his remarks to the official and as Saints pushed for an equaliser the home side hit a second goal.
The game ended on a sour note after a clash between both sets of players with Joel Norris and a Bedmond player both seeing red.
Saints entertain AFC Hertford this Saturday (KO 3pm).
St Peter’s: Barnes; Pooley, Costain, Wiltshire, Jones; Taylor, Stuart-Neal (Carman), Cunningham (Hood-Wright), Ellis; Norris, Savory. Subs not used: Beswick, Gauthier.
