The Oaks ran out 19-12 winners in the derby duel at the Showground to knock previously-unbeaten Stamford off top spot.
In a match which was always going to favour the side who made the best use of having the strong wind and driving rain in their favour, Oakham ran in 16 points with the elements during the first period before holding off a strong Stamford fightback.
