Kingstonian were blown away as Haringey Borough scored five in the Isthmian League Premier Division in a 5-2 win.
Kaylen Hinds got Haringey off to a quick start before Georgios Aresti and Anthony Mendy made it three before half-time.
Chaynie Fage-Burgin and Hinds' second made it five, before Iker Noguera Leon and Amine Sassi both scored in a three-minute period to make the score line slightly more respectable.
Yet another defeat on the road keeps Lee O'Leary searching for the K's' first away win of the season and leaves them 15th in the table.
In a frantic evening at Coles Park Stadium in which there were chances aplenty at both ends, Hinds gave Haringey a lead after just four minutes when he turned home a cross-cum-shot at the far post.
Aresti then made it two after 34 minutes when Kieran Cadogan's floated corner couldn't quite pick anyone out and Tyrese Owen's cross was turned over the top, the hosts raced down the other end and Aresti curled it beyond Sam Jackson from close range.
Then on the stroke of half-time Mendy scored the third as Jackson was forced into a fine save, before a shot was blasted against the crossbar and Mendy eventually found the back of the net.
Kingstonian had an unlikely route back into the game shortly after the break when Luke Mewitt picked up a back pass, Kenny Beaney had a shot blocked from the resulting indirect free-kick and it deflected back to the edge of the area where Mewitt made a stunning save to tip the shot over the bar.
The hosts then put the game to bed as in a two-minute period when first Fage-Burgin found the back of the net after 69 minutes before the former-Wolfsburg striker Hinds added his second of the evening as he made it five-nil with a spectacular effort.
On 78 minutes Noguera Leon scored an absolute rocket from 20-yards that perfectly picked out the top corner to add a moment of light to yet another tough away game for the K's.
Then three minutes later Kingstonian got a second as Sassi created a yard of space for himself in the area and tucked the ball home as a remarkable evening for goals continued when despite seven having gone in, there could have been many more goals.
Kingstonian are on the road again this weekend as they travel to third placed Bishop's Stortford in the Isthmian League Premier Division at the ProKit UK Stadium, where they are yet to lose so far this season.
