Scarborough plundered three goals in nine first-half minutes to record their first home win of the season with a 3-1 triumph over in-form Gravesend & Northfleet.
Brian Wake scored for the third straight game to start the blitz, before Paul McCarthy put through his own net and Kevin Nicholson sent the hosts into the break three up.
Paul Foot was sent off on the hour for a second bookable offence and Andrew Drury pulled a goal back but it was too little, too late.
Gravesend started brightly but Wake drilled Scarborough ahead in the 30th minute and McCarthy made a hash of an attempted clearance six minutes later to double the hosts' advantage.
Nicholson, who had twice gone close with free-kicks, then made it third time lucky with a brilliant effort.
Unbeaten in four, Fleet piled on the pressure after the break and Foot's dismissal aided their quest with Drury slotting home from close range, but Scarborough held on.
