Stanway took the lead after three defenders hesitated and failed to clear the ball leaving a striker a simple finish from a one-on-one.
Rovers doubled their lead when a wideman was allowed too much time to deliver a cross and the ball was headed home and it was 3-0 early in the second half after a defender surrendered possession cheaply.
Substitute Simon Oakly came off the bench to score the goal of the game - a stunning volley from just outside the penalty area after a cross was cleared.
The Fenmen have been boosted by news that former King's Lynn player Charlie Defty, who can play midfield or centre-back, has signed for the club.
Defty may feature in Wisbech's Premier Division match at CRC on Wednesday night.
