Darby added his second of the day in the 85th minute to complete the rout.
'Hall assistant manager Ricky Cornish said: "In the first half we weren't very good, to be honest. The wind was a major factor.
"We were in cruise control in the first half and we knew we had to step things up in the second half otherwise we would get beaten.
"We had a six changes from last Tuesday's game [against Bury Town] and it's been a problem for us to get a settled side all season. We not had the same team out for more than two games on the spin.
