After being put in the clear by Clark, he coolly slotted in his 16th goal of the season.
Holt then turned provider, setting up strike partner Martyn Lees, who beat the keeper from 10 yards.
Great Chesterford pulled one back from close range just before half-time, but restored their two-goal cushion in the opening moments of the second period.
This time it was Harrison who got on the scoresheet, nodding in Holt's corner.
Harrison made it 4-1 with another header, before the visitors reduced the arrears at the death.
Steeple will have to be at their best again on Saturday, when they go to Abington United.
