Tom O'Connor in the centre made a big dent in the opposition's line to put Biggleswade in a good attacking position.
From the next passage of play he rounded off the move with a try in the corner.
Exploiting home advantage, Long Buckby added another try just before half-time to lead 12-5 at the break.
Buckby seemed to have the game wrapped up when they added another try and a penalty but Biggy refused to lie down.
Biggy's perky scrum-half, who was in the thick of the action all afternoon, went over for a try from close range with Mark Rastrick adding the conversion from a long way out.
Then, in the closing seconds, Buckby did everything to stop Biggleswade scoring and this gave the referee no choice but to award a penalty try.
