Kelty claimed three points with a home win over local rivals Kinross. A hat-trick from Lewis Martin and goals from Ross Day, Ben Jenkins, Ryan Sibbald and Matt Douglas wrapped up the win with Calum McIntyre grabbing a consolation for the visitors.
It was an even opening at Blairadam Park with no noteworthy chances till Martin danced through the visiting defence, but a goal saving tackle from Lewis Caulfield denied him.
Six minutes later Kelty were in front when Day's strike was deflected of a Kinross defender, wrong footing the 'keeper. The lead was doubled three minutes later as Martin broke down the left wing and slotted the ball past the 'keeper.
The hosts continued to pile pressure on with Martin and Jenkins both having shots off target before Martin got the better of the defender and fired the ball into the back of the Kinross net.
The Colts tried to respond before the break, but Aaron Macdonald sent his volley just wide.

Kelty started the second half on the front foot and a long range effort from Jenkins increased the hosts lead.
The home side continued to turn the screw and got their fifth just before the hour as Martin broke down the right wing before slotting the ball under the goalkeeper. Kelty were still pushing and Jenkins was close to grabbing their sixth of the game. 
The visitors showed flashes down the wings from Scott Lavender and Cameron Donnelly. A McIntyre free kick also sailed over the bar and failed to trouble the 'keeper.
Kelty increased their lead on the 74th minute when Sibbald broke down the right wing and swept the ball into the far corner.
The hosts searched for a seventh and Day was unlucky not to get it when after jinking in the box, his shot clipped the post. The seventh came three minutes from time though as Douglas blasted in from a free kick.
The final word belonged to the away side as a long range strike from McIntyre looped over the 'keeper and into the net.
Martin stole the show with his hat-trick for Kelty while Kinross continue to search for their first league win of the season.
