Substitute Darren Mansaram scored two and created the other as Halifax defeated Dagenham & Redbridge.
John Grant had a chance to put Halifax ahead when he was brought down by Shane Blackett but he saw his penalty well saved by Tony Roberts.
Mansaram replaced Grant after half-time and soon headed home a Steven Haslam cross to break the deadlock.
He then set up Lewis Killeen for a second before killing off the game with a superb strike from long range.
