The Melbourn midfield came out in determined mood at the start of the second half with Tommy Hollway always a threat down the Melbourn right and it was no surprise that he finished off a sweeping move on 35 minutes to make it 1-1.
Melbourn pushed forward from the restart and two minutes later Luke Eades was in the right place to tap home a deserved second goal for the Panthers after a loose ball fell kindly for him.
Despite never giving up, Rovers struggled to get past some resolute defending from man-of-the-match Ryan Lees and Lewis Chessum.
The Melbourn attack had three clear cut openings in the final few minutes but somehow failed to add to the score, Never the less a good all round team performance by all.
