Brigg Town Development ended a dismal run by chalking up their first win in 10 matches on Saturday.
The 3-0 home win over AFC Boston sent the Zebras into the semi-finals of the Lincs Challenge Cup.
Jake Crossland put the hosts in front after just five minutes and doubled the lead on the hour.
The striker completed his hat-trick in the last minute to set up a last-four showdown with Immingham Town on March 24.
Second-bottom Brigg will be hoping to take this form into the Lincolnshire League when they travel to unbeaten Skegness Town on Saturday (kick-off 2pm).
