Wisbech under-15s ran out 40-5 winners over Norwich Crusaders in a tactical battle.
They led 21-0 at the break as great lines and quick hands saw them pin their rivals back.
And although Crusaders hit back during a dominant spell in the second half, Wisbech would not be denied.
Scrum-half Josh Sandall shone, while fly-half Jacob Gent landed five of the six conversions.
Reece Brighty impressed in attack, while full-back Will Paul took the man of the match award.
