Just before half-time Dereham full-back Sam Willis scored a delightful chip from 20 yards to make it 3-0.
Substitute Chris Barrett showed blistering pace to race on to Wayne Goddard's through-ball and cut back for Harrold to score into an empty net, and the striker scored his second from the penalty spot in the 70th minute after Andy Eady was pushed.
But five minutes later, Daniel Beaumont wrapped up the points with a strike from the edge of the area.
