A pivotal moment just before half-time came when the referee saw Scarborough's Ryan Blott kick out petulantly at a Rangers player.
It seemed a simple red card decision, but only a yellow was given.
Blott went on to score two further goals in the second period to add insult to injury.
Further second-half goals from Matt Plummer and Pete Davison, together with the completion of Hawksworth's hat-trick, sealed the embarrassment for Rangers, who drop one place into the potential relegation places.
Assistant manager Lee Hastings said: "It was a very disappointing and frustrating display, with a number of major attributes missing collectively as a team, which are required to compete in games at this level.
"One positive was the three players introduced off the bench, Ben Lewis, Ben Silburn and debutant Eddie Birch, who did very well."
