Ryan Hawkins grabbed a hat-trick as King's Lynn Town made it 19 goals in their last four games - six of which have come from the pacey frontman.
The leaders got off to a good start at the bottom club, Dion Frary putting them in the lead after just five minutes, heading home a Michael Clunan free-kick.
The visitors doubled their advantage in the 14th minute when Hawkins began his scoring spree for the night, dispossessing a defender before slotting the ball into the bottom right corner.
There was a jolt for Lynn when the hosts pulled one back through Joe Lea in the 35th minute, but Hawkins restored the two-goal advantage in time added on at the end of the first half. The youngster grabbed his hat-trick seven minutes after the break, with Ryan Fryatt, Michael Gash and sub Tom Siddons all on target as Lynn made it a magnificent seven.
