Phil Jevons scored four sublime goals as Hyde went goal crazy at Ewen Fields.
David Poole, Scott Spencer and Matty Harris, days after signing a contract with the club, added the others in a dominant performance.
It was an opening 45 minutes that didn’t really spark into life until a red card incident, after which Hyde took full control.
In the early moments David Poole played in Scott Spencer who forced a save from Aaron Hoyle, before Dilo had to react well to smother Brett Williams’ low cross.
On 14 minutes Phil Jevons capitalised on a Woking mistake at the back; unleashing a shot that again was kept out.
After Williams forced Dilo into action again, Spencer forced Hoyle into a terrific save at the midway point of the first half.
It was a nice build up from Hyde, but it took a lucky break to fall to the England striker whose left footed strike was dipping under the bar but for a finger tip save.
John Nutter then played in Williams, who unfortunately for the visitors had to replaced, but his shot fizzed wide three minutes before the turning point.
Brett Johnson unceremoniously hauled down Spencer as he charged through on goal, with Mr Ford rightly issuing the red card.
It took seven minutes for Hyde to take advantage, Poole dinking through a great pass to Jevons who slid the ball under the keeper from an angle.
Two more chances were created in the dying embers of the half, but it stayed 1-0.
Firstly Jevons got his head to a corner but Spencer couldn’t react quick enough to turn it goal wards, before Joe McNerney did well to intercept with Luke Ashworth lurking.
The second started where the first left off, with Hyde in full control.
Just three minutes in Spencer forced a sharp stop from Hoyle, before beating him just three minutes later.
Liam Tomsett rode a challenge in the middle of the pitch and drove forward, his pass was just the right weight for Spencer who ran onto it and shot across the keeper and into the corner.
Shortly after the hour mark the game was put beyond all doubt, a terrific pass from Adam Griffin found Jevons who calmly rounded the keeper and slid the ball in for a 3-0 lead.
Spencer then forced another sharp stop, with Woking then mounting their only attack of the half.
Kevin Betsy drove forward and tried to round Dilo, but the Hyde keeper stood his ground and smothered the ball to cut out the threat.
With a little over ten minutes left it was Matty Harris’ turn to add his name to the scoresheet, with his first touch of the game.
Jevons turned provider by swinging in a great cross from the left, that was met perfectly by the youngster with his first touch.
With the game ebbing away, Hyde rubbed salt into the Woking wounds with three more.
This time it was Harris who drifted out wide; crossing from the left for Poole who hit home first time.
Jevons then ensured he took the match ball, adding two stunners to notch up number three and four.
In the 89th minute Alex Brown had a shot cleared off the line; Jevons collected the rebound and smashed it past Hoyle from distance.
It was then Poole who had a shot saved in the last minute, Jevons again collected but on the edge of the box this time and his chipped shot clipped the bar and fell in.
