Biggleswade United earned some breathing space at the foot of the SML Premier Division on Tuesday night.
They won 3-2 over Holmer Green after the visitors went ahead within two minutes with one of the best goals seen at Second Meadow this season.
Collecting a loose ball in the middle of the park, Richard Wilson let rip with a 35-yard screamer.
United equalised in the 23rd minute from the penalty spot. Keith Thomas was fouled and leading scorer Marc Holmes held his nerve with the spot-kick.
Then with 10 minutes of the half left, a mazy run from Jack Weeden saw the United striker cut into the area and curl home a precision shot.
Holmer drew level on 56 minutes as a mistake from Jody Johnson set up Craig Henney to go one-on-one with Adam Lawrence and he made no mistake.

Another penalty decision saw United claim the points. Sam Brown's legs were taken away from him and with Holmes off the pitch, it was left to a rejuvenated Weeden to tuck away the spot-kick.
United went down 1-0 at Oxhey Jets on Saturday as the Watford side completed a league double over the Waders and their third victory over them this season.
Biggleswade Town were beaten 2-1 at home by Tring Athletic on Saturday and remain bottom.
Potton United avenged an earlier reverse with a 4-2 victory over Bourne at The Hollow on Saturday.
The home side took first-half charge with goals from Gareth Cottenden after six minutes following a free-kick and a 37th minute Lee Allinson spot-kick.
A foul on Allinson saw Nathan Buckland handed the kick - his effort was kept out by Wakes keeper Ben Derbyshire only for the referee to award a retake which Allinson converted.
Brett Donnelly made it three for the Royals with a back heel after 53 minutes but six minutes later, Miles Mason replied from the spot after being fouled by Buckland. With eight minutes to go, Ben Stainsby's own goal wrapped up Potton's win after sub Russell Bull's shot rebounded from the post.
Bourne had the last word with another spot-kick converted by Mason in the last minute.
