Match ends, Torquay United 4, Woking 1.
Top scorer Jamie Reid helped Torquay end a seven-game losing streak in the National League by beating 10-man Woking 4-1 at Plainmoor.
Jake Hyde put Woking ahead in the 12th minute, tapping home from close range, and was denied a second shortly afterwards by a fine save from Torquay keeper Lucas Covolan.
Asa Hall levelled with an effort from the edge of the box in the 25th minute before Dave Tarpey squandered a glorious chance to restore Woking's lead when he fired wide when clean through.
That miss proved costly - as did keeper Sam Howes' error - as Reid slotted into an empty net eight minutes before the break for his 16th league goal of the season.
Woking's woes deepened in the 53rd minute as they were reduced to 10 men after Godfrey Poku was dismissed for a second caution.
Covolan thwarted Jake Gray and Tarpey fired over as Woking threatened an equaliser but Ben Whitfield converted Reid's cross to wrap up the points.
Reid then played in Ruairi Keating to notch a fourth goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
