Match ends, Crewe Alexandra 0, Stevenage 3.
Filipe Morais's brace helped lift Stevenage out of the relegation zone with victory at Crewe.
The 27-year-old opened the scoring for Graham Westley's side, running onto Francois Zoko's flick-on before neatly clipping the ball over Alex keeper Steve Phillips.
Luke Freeman doubled their advantage from a tight angle after Phillips saved his initial effort.
Morais then chipped into the top corner to make it 3-0 inside 20 minutes.
It could have been a bigger win for the visitors with Zoko hitting the post, while Michael Doughty and substitute James Dunne were denied by Phillips after the break.

Stevenage boss Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"Defensively we looked much better organised, offensively we looked like we've got a threat and a goal in us.
"The entire attitude of the team is changing, the winning mentality is coming back.
"It's been a hard battle to create a mindset in the football club that Stevenage are going to come and take the game to you.
"Morais and Zoko's combination play was too much for them to handle tonight."
