Spencer then dragged a shot wide for Ivanhoe befoe they fell 2-0 behind in the 23rd minute.
Nathan Summers seized on a misplaced pass, broke clear and fired a cross-shot into the net.
Spencer continued to be a threat for Ivanhoe but Rangers finished the half strongly as Jake Summers and Mitch Smith combined to tee up Nathan Summers, who tested keeper Jack Veitch with a fierce strike.
Johnson then saw a shot hit the underside of the bar before Rangers made it 3-0 in the 45th minute.
Arkless and Davies combined to release Nathan Summers down the right and he found the target again with another cross-shot.
Early in the second half, Taylor did well to deny Jordan Emmerson and then tempers boiled over in the 54th minute.
A strong challenge by Nathan Summers sparked a melee involving players from both sides, which resulted in a yellow card for the Rangers player and red for Ashby’s Bexon.

But in the 71st minute Veitch was adjudged to have brought down Johnson in the penalty area and the Rangers player stepped up to bury the spot kick and make it 4-0.
And it got worse for Ashby in the 76th minute when Nathan Summers’ cross from the right was volleyed home by Johnson.
Nathan Summers went close to completing his hat-trick but fired narrowly wide, while Ivanhoe almost grabbed a late consolation when Emerson’s effort was acrobatically tipped over the bar by Taylor.
