Nick Ingram opened the scoring in the 53rd minute with a low drive from the edge of the area after a neat interchange with Stuart Boardley, and two minutes later Stuart Ainsley doubled the score from Bennett’s cross.
Ainsley added the third from the penalty spot with nine minutes left to complete the scoring after Heron had upended Bennett in the box.
