Zander Miller and Tom Grant both scored hat-tricks for the visitors at Innerleithen’s Albert Park, with Stuart Hunter also getting on the scoresheet with a 58th-minute far-post shot from a Nick Locke corner.
Miller’s first was a ninth-minute penalty after Grant was brought down, his second was a close-range finish from a Jamie McCormack cross on 63 minutes and his third was a shot from a rebound after a McCormack effort from a corner was kept out one minute into added-on time.
Grant’s first was a 13th-minute shot via the near post after being played in by Connor McMullan, his second was a 29th-minute header from a cross from the left and his third was a curling shot from distance on 75 minutes.
