Swanwick Pentrich Road went goal crazy for Christmas, hitting five at Blidworth Welfare to move level on points with their hosts in the South Division of the Central Midlands League.
A hat-trick by Henry Brooks and two strikes from Guy Wilding put the visitors into a comfortable lead before two late home consolations made it 5-2.
Brooks broke the deadlock after 18 minutes from a Wilding pass, turning and firing into the bottom corner.
Wilding reacted quickest to a defensive mix-up to make it 2-0 and in the 39th minute James Sesin crossed to the unmarked Brooks to score.
Seven minutes into the second half Wilding buried the ball under the keeper from a Richard Wall a knock-down at a corner.
Brooks completed his hat-trick just after the hour, beating the offside line to run and lob in.
