Steve Morison scored twice to help Stevenage thrash struggling Altrincham.
Morison rattled a fierce shot past goalkeeper Stuart Coburn before the home side were gifted an equaliser when John White headed into his own net.
Tyrone Berry pounced to prod home from close range and Stuart Lewis' rasping 20-yard shot made it 3-1.
Daryl McMahon hit the net with a superb free-kick but Morison's late second - an unstoppable 25-yard drive - was the best goal of the match.
