Match ends, Barnet 4, Crawley Town 2.
Barnet survived a comeback from Crawley to claim their first win in six league games.
Two Bira Dembele headers, both from Luke Gambin crosses, put the hosts in control before Crawley hit back.
Mitch Hancox's over-hit cross went in off a post to reduce the deficit before Jimmy Smith's volley made it 2-2.
But John Akinde's penalty, after Josh Yorweth was brought down, and Lewis Young's own goal ensured Barnet claimed all three points.
Barnet manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio London:
"I thought the team played very well, similar to the performance last week against Yeovil.
"Of course when they came back to 2-2 there was a nervous energy around the club with the players and the supporters, everybody's the same.
"All credit to the players, they kept going and got their rewards by keeping the self-belief. They kept going right to the end and I thought it was a deserved victory."
Crawley Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Surrey:
"I thought we were quite comfortable in the first half and then we concede right on half-time from a set piece.
"We spoke about making sure we didn't do again and one ball in the box we did. We got back into the game at 2-2 and it would've masked how we were playing.
"That's the opportunities you have got to take and you've got to be ruthless with teams. You've got to be tough in this league, no matter what. and I just felt we let one or two of them bully us today."
