Stotfold made it nine goals scored in two games by thumping already relegated Ford Sports 4-0.
The Rokermen will finish third from bottom despite their improved form near the end of the UCL Premier Division campaign.
Despite good chances for Joel Mason and Joe Philbin, their first goal did not come until the 45th minute.
Dave Drury's corner was played short to Gordon Guile on the edge of the six-yard box who turned and picked out Wayne Mullooly (shown right) to sidefoot the ball in.
Mason thought he had got the second five minutes into the second half only to be given offside.
Mullooly knocked in his second from close range after Tawhid Juneja's header from a free-kick on the right came back off the bar on 72 minutes.
Callum Donnelly's free-kick from the left sailed through the box and was poked in at the far post by Mullooly to complete his hat-trick three minutes later.
This took his scoring record to five after just two appearances - one from the bench and this his first start.
Five minutes from time, Stotfold sub Ryan Aldrin forced keeper Andy Millard to tip over the bar with a fierce shot from distance and from the resulting corner, Juneja struck the ball low to the keeper's right.
A good run down the right from Donnelly and ball into Tommy Hull resulted in a great double save from the keeper, who parried Hull's shot and denied Aldrin the rebound, two minutes from time.
Rokermen: Young, Taylor, D Drury, Hull, Juneja, Gregory (M Lee), Donnelly, Guile, Mason, Mullooly (Hall), Philbin (Aldrin).
Stotfold will now complete their season with a home game against Raunds this Saturday.
