Clevedon Town claimed three second-half goals to see off Cribbs in their Toolstation Western League Premier Division clash on Saturday.
The visitors had the first chance on six minutes as former Seasider Sam Holden found Andre Freckleton, who saw his shot blocked by Glen Hayer.
Ethan Feltham fired over for the hosts after swapping passes with man of the match Lucas Vowles, then saw another effort beat Archie Watts but be cleared by Dan Dyke.
Holden and Jordan Yeo combined to find Nathan Legge, who fired straight at Tom Creed, before George King played Feltham into the box at the other end to test Watts from a narrow angle.
Legge headed wide from a Freckleton cross on 21 minutes and Feltham's deflected shot flew into the arms of Watts, before Creed pushed Yeo's cross-shot wide with a good save.
Tom Anthony cleared after Watts saved another Feltham shot, while Vowles fired over from Harry Smith's quick throw in.
Vowles shot just wide from an Archie Ferris pass and he saw another chance go begging from King's corner, before firing at Watts just before the break.
Creed kept out another Yeo shot on the stroke of half time, while Elliot Nicholson fired over for the hosts after the restart.
And Clevedon broke through on 48 minutes as King teed up Vowles, who sent a well-placed shot into the far corner.
It was 2-0 on 56 minutes as Vowles played Feltham through to beat Watts in similar style and King went close to a third, before Nicholson volleyed wide.
Morgan Williams returned from a double leg break suffered against Bridport last October to replace Smith and Clevedon went 3-0 up on 79 minutes as Feltham beat Holden and crossed for Vowles to round Watts and score.
Vowles went close to completing a hat-trick two minutes from time as his curling free-kick was pushed out by Watts, who saw Williams head against the post.
But Clevedon had done enough and were due to visit Keynsham Town last night (Tuesday) ahead of a blank weekend.
