Gala Fairydean made it three wins on the spin after a superb first half had them well on their way away to Hutchison Vale Colts in the quarter-finals of the Colin Campbell Sports Cup.
Forward Callum Marshall got Gala off to a dream start after just 11 minutes when he netted to put the away side one nil up.
However, Hutchison levelled shortly after to level the game with only 19 minutes played. But Gala were not settling for the draw, Marshall netted his second of the match just 60 seconds later to help Gala restore their lead.
The prolific Callum Marshall then grabbed his and Gala's third of the day to give the away side a comfortable two goal advantage heading into the second half of this cup tie.
Unlike the first half the second was fairly uneventful with the home side grabbing the only goal of the half which was just a consolation as Gala ran out eventual winners thanks to Callum Marshall's hat-trick as Gala made it three straight wins.
Gala will aim to make it four in a row as they return to league action on Sunday at home to Salvesen FC but Hutchison will aim to bounce back as they travel to Dunbar United Colts.
