Lowestoft Town made it three wins on the bounce for the first time this season.
Shaun Bammant was destroyer in chief, opening the scoring then setting up a second for Jake Reed, who then added an insurance goal with four minutes left.
They started at a high tempo and inside the first three minutes Bammant put a header just wide of the upright.
But just three minutes later, Lowestoft were ahead when Ryan Jarvis' corner was cleared only as far as Adam Smith who floated the ball back to the far post for Bammant to head across Cameron Greaves and into the net.
Bammant was having a good game down the left flank and set up a chance for Reed, who stabbed the ball the wrong side of the upright,

Burgess Hill were creating chances of their own, with Aaron Smith-Joseph denied by an excellent tackle from Harry Barker before setting up a good chance for Tyrell Richardson-Brown who blazed over from six yards.
The Hillians levelled in the 16th minute when Richard-Brown won the race for to James Richmond's ball over the defence and chipping over keeper Jake Jessup.

Read saw a goalbound effort cleared off the line before he restored Lowestoft's lead in the 35th minute, diving low to head home Bammant's cross from the left.
The second period saw Burgess Hill enjoy far more possession without really troubling the Trawlerboys defence, with Blake-Tracy and Travis Cole looking solid and the two full-backs competing well with the pacy Hillian wing men.
Smith-Joseph tried the spectacular with an overhead bicycle kick and then a cheeky lofted back heel which dropped over the bar.
Lowestoft finally settled matters late on when Bammant won possession and played in Nico Cotton down the left. He used his pace to get past Richmond before cutting inside along the byeline and setting up Reed's easiest goal of the season as he tapped into an empty net from a couple of yards out.
