Euan Bryce netted four times in the Kenny McLean cup which was enough for Cramond to see off Edinburgh United in a hard fought tie at Royal High.
It was a grim day with the weather ever changing - showers and high winds made it difficult for both sides.
The first ten minutes were fairly even although Cramond created the better of the chances, with Leon Cook having two early chances, the first of which agonisingly rolled across the face of goal.
After 13 minutes, the hosts took the lead through Euan Bryce. The ball fell to the forward inside the box following a long free kick, who still had a lot to do as he guided the ball in on the half volley.
Cramond doubled their lead with 22 minutes gone, the ball coming in from the left hand side and a brilliant dummy from Bryce gave him space in the box and once again he found the bottom right corner with a cool finish.
A clash of heads between United's Luke Ramage and Eesa Iqbal saw both players go to ground but luckily both were fine, although Ramage did have to leave the park briefly.
It was only a matter of minutes until the hat-trick came. A low finish from Bryce from a tight angle, this time on the right hand side of the penalty area, put the hosts three up inside 25 minutes.
Coming towards the end of the half, United began to build some pressure, Sonny Flexen worked an opening with John Young well on the right but Cramond keeper Euan Knight was left untested as Flexen's effort was always going wide.
Knight would be tested right on the stroke of half time, when Flexen's whipped cross was too far away from the keeper, who couldn't get enough on the ball to clear it from safety, and sat up nicely for Eesa Iqbal who slotted the ball away well to cut the deficit with the last kick of the first period.
