A clinical first half performance from the visitors ensured that they progressed into the next round of the Fife and Lothians Cup.

With top scorer Kieran Band on the bench, the search for goals was handed to Kyle Wilson and Lyle Shaw.

In an incredible first half the new front pairing didnt take long to oblige, duly helping themselves to a hat-trick apiece.

The visitors took the lead after 10 minutes of play.

Wilsons latched onto a lovely threaded pass from Shaw, although his first shot was blocked, the rebound off the defender fell back into his path and he stroked it past the keeper.

Five minutes later KSH doubled their lead when Shaw picked up an over hit corner from Brodie Gray and drove past the defender.

The keeper anticipating a shot across goal left an inviting gap at the nearpost, seeing the gap the young striker slammed the ball into the net.

Number three followed minutes later following a swift flowing move orchestrated by skipper Kevin Byers.

Some neat one touch football in midfield between Young, Byers and Craig ended with Byers feeding Lornie.

Byers, receiving the ball again, played a one two with Wilson and hit a fierce shot from close range that the keeper managed to parry.

The alert Wilson was on hand though to pounce at the back post.

There was to be no let up for Stoneyburn as their day got worse after half an hour.

Liam Craig danced inside a couple of defenders on the edge of the box before slipping the ball into the path of Shaw who made no mistake.

With 38 minutes on the clock it was 5-0 .

A Craig pass found Shaw’s run, eluding his marker the striker grabbed his hattrick driving home from 14 yards.

Not to be outdone Wilson made it three for him and six for KSH minutes before the interval.

A ball over the top heralded a calamitous mix up between the Burn centre half and goalkeeper Holliday with Wilson on hand to roll the ball into the empty net.

The second 45 started of in the same vein with the visitors creating numerous chances.

Wilson came close to adding to his tally but his effort went wide of the target.

Michael Lee made a foray forward but his drive from the edge of the box was blocked.

Chris Lornie was trying like mad to get his first of the season but a superb stop from the Burn keeper frustrated the KSH wideman.

Wilson was to get his 4th and the visitors seventh in the 67th minute of the game.

A Young ball into the box drew consternation in the Stoneyburn defence and their efforts to clear only resulted in a case of pinball in the box.

The ball somehow dropped invitingly into the path of Wilson who again had an easy finish.

Sub Bremner then tried his luck from a free kick but his howitzer effort only succeeded in leaving a Stoneyburn defender with a sore posterior.

Substitute Nathan Doig then got in on the goalscoring act with his first touch of the ball since coming on. An inch perfect pass from fellow sub Band saw Doig finish with aplomb, slipping the ball past the despairing Holliday.

Next is a trip Dundee Violet on October 17.

Kick off 2.30pm
