But Melbourn were back in the game on the half-hour, when Dave Plester combined with Steve Marriott, who cleverly flicked the ball on for captain Jason Gray to hammer in his first of two goals.
However, the hosts slipped behind moments later when a Hardwick midfielder skipped through three half-hearted Melbourn tackles, with the ball deflected over goalkeeper Glen Pearse's head and into the net.
