Don Cowie grabbed a double as Ross County moved off the foot of the Division One table with an inspired victory over Hamilton Academical.
Cowie thundered in the opener, set up Sean Higgins for an easy finish and coolly added the third from close range, all before the 17th minute.
Richard Offiong scrambling in a reply as Accies improved after the break.
But Craig Gunn completed the scoring, reacting first after a Daniel Moore free-kick crashed off the crossbar.
