Manager Joe Sheridan was able to make four changes for the start of the second game to freshen things up, bringing in Nick Turner and John Beschizza into centre of midfield.
Turner netted the opener with a header and then lobbed home the second after latching on to Mark Blackburne's through ball.
Belstone kept possession well and Giles Arthur killed the game off, tapping in after the goalkeeper fumbled a deep cross.
Blackburne scored an impressive goal, beating two defenders with his chest control, before an acutely-angled finish and Matt Cole rounded off the scoring before Pinner got a consolation. The final score was 5-1 to Belstone.
The Radlett outfit took on their only remaining title rivals, Broadfields Harrow, away on Wednesday night as they continued their pursuit of a clean sweep of Harrow Sunday Challenge League titles.
