Swaffham were once again slow out of the blocks, allowing March's No 8 Luke Pepper to head in unchallenged from a free-kick.
In the ninth minute a penalty gave Pepper his second. A glimmer of hope came for the Pedlars with Richard Cornwall chipping the keeper from 22 yards, the best goal of the match, the shot skimming the underside of the bar.
The Hares started the second half strongly and bagged their third in the 47th minute in a goalmouth scramble. The fourth followed in the 55th minute, Michael Cozens seeing red for handling on the line, Pepper converting the penalty to secure his hat-trick.
