Jon Nurse grabbed a second-half winner to hand Stevenage the win at Southport.
Sandgrounders defender Mark Boyd opened the scoring in the 39th minute when he
collected Tony Gray's pass and fired home right-footed from 12 yards.
But Stevenage striker Steve Morison equalised four minutes after the break
when he arrived in the box to head home Nurse's left-wing cross.
Five minutes later Nurse strode onto
George Boyd's pass and rifled the ball home left-footed from 12 yards.
