Unfortunately for Myerscough, even though the home side's attacks were often blunt, their defence was generally still on top form and the former did not have the ammunition to overcome it.
The Prestonians, Sale Sharks proteges, will be cursing themselves for not getting closer to Hartpury, who fell foul of their opponents excellent skills in the breakdown numerous times and hence struggled to link phases together throughout.
Due to half term, it was Hartpurys first match since the excellent 33-7 win at Worcester at the end of October, and the coaches stuck with fourteen of the starting fifteen from that match.
Myerscough handed them the chance to make the first impression on the scoreboard after six minutes when they turned the ball over illegally and were penalised by referee Luke Haskins. It was a difficult chance for kicker Dan Robson, forty-five metres out and coping with a swirling wind, and he was narrowly wide with his attempt.
However, the hosts only had to wait a matter of a few minutes to open the scoring, this time with a try.
The visitors were caught on the wrong side of the law again and Hartpury kicked the resulting penalty deep into the 22. The lineout ball was secured without resistance and a powerful driving maul developed, which Myerscough were powerless to stop in its journey over their try line.
Loosehead prop Nathan Taylor was the given the credit for applying the finishing touch, but it was a classic route one forwards try.
Robson converted and then extended that lead to ten points with a much cleaner shot soon after, albeit in front of the posts this time, following another penalty being awarded against Myerscough for a tackler failing to roll away.
As the interval drew closer, territory and possession-wise Myerscough were certainly in control on account of Hartpury being unable to hold onto the ball for any length of time.
However, they will be ruing the missed opportunities of getting some points on the board, specifically an off-target shot at goal, which would have set the nerves going in the home camp.
Half time came just at the right time for Hartpury and they began the second period in a much more positive fashion.
James Price and his namesake Miller made half-breaks, before the team scored their second try with nine minutes gone.
Its resemblance to the first try was uncanny; Myerscough lost their discipline, Robson punted them back into the red zone, the Hartpury forwards set up a maul from the lineout, they were not prevented from rumbling over the try line and second row Rob Langley completed the simple job of touching the ball down for five points.
Robson pushed his conversion wide this time, but at fifteen unanswered points down, the visitors were leaving themselves with a lot to do.
With Jimmy Litchfield, who was having an excellent game sin-binned for entering a breakdown from the side it was all hands on deck as far as the hosts were concerned as Myerscough cranked up the voltage.
They seemed destined to score on countless occasions, but some truly miraculous defence, most notably when an attacking player was somehow shoved back over the line in the process of grounding the ball, kept them at bay.
Then, against the run of play, Rob Langley made the game safe in the sixty-eighth minute in slightly bizarre circumstances.
The visitors set up a ruck in midfield just outside their 22 and appeared to have a nice, undisrupted platform upon which to make a clearance kick, before the ball inexplicably squirted out of the side and was seized upon by the grateful Langley, who showed awesome pace and strength to slalom through the defenders and score his second try of the day, converted by Robson, which gave his team an unassailable 22-0 lead.
With the win guaranteed, the hosts spent the final two minutes searching for the fourth try which would put the icing on the cake in the form of a bonus point.
A lineout and an overlap later, James Miller was the man scampering over the line for that very try.
He made no mistake, and neither did Dan Robson with the kick, whose conversion was the final act of the match.
Junior Academy Director Alan Martinovic admitted that the final score flattered Hartpury, but chose to reflect on the positive aspects of the result and performance.
"Firstly, I think that the important thing is that we got maximum points", he explained.
"You have to remember as well that before today, Myerscough had got at least a losing bonus point in every game so far, so to beat them by this margin was quite pleasing."
"There were certain things that went well. I thought our scrum and lineout was fine and our scramble defence was good."
"However, it's clear that there are a lot of things to work on which, if they are not sorted, will be punished by the best sides."
