Canterbury's hopes of promotion from National 2 South were dealt a huge blow with a crushing 41-8 defeat at rivals Ampthill on Saturday - their biggest loss of the campaign.
However they were comprehensively shut-down by the hosts, despite taking an early lead through a Tom Best penalty, as smothering defence and a solid game-plan earned the crucial points.
Best also scored the only visiting try of the afternoon after good work from scrum-half Grant Kay, but the score came late in the second-half with the game already up.
Canterbury slipped to third on points-difference and are eight points adrift of leaders Hartpury College - whom they beat last weekend - with both their rivals having a game in hand.
On Saturday fourth-placed Bishop's Stortford visit Merton Lane, with the city club knowing a win would secure their highest ever finish in the national league ladder.
