Gavin Crane netted a hat-trick with the others from Gary Gilmore, Key and an own goal.

Hilton did almost as well in his debut for leaders Lowestoft, who topped 50 Premier Division goals for the season with a 5-1 thrashing of Needham Market.

Richard Woodrow and Reece Hunn put the Trawler Boys 2-0 up in the first half and Woodrow converted a penalty to make it three before Hough and Gary McGee (penalty) completed the nap hand - Parker replying in the last minute.
