Felixstowe drove a powerful scrum over from five metres for Pete Sheppard to score.
Rovers scored two early tries in the second half, but neither was converted. This was enough to shake up the visitors for whom scrum-half Dom Long was man-of-the-match.
Steve Britchfield stepped up his game with a solid performance, grabbing eight points for his team including a sweetly-struck penalty.
