Kane Hemmings' hat-trick helped Cowdenbeath record a handsome win against Berwick Rangers in the Scottish League Cup.

The striker got his first from close range and soon added his second with a low drive.

In the second half, Kyle Miller profited from some sloppy Berwick defending to fire Cowden's third.

Substitute Greg Stewart scored with his first touch of the ball before Hemmings complete the scoring with a header.
