Platinum Stars beat The Dolphins 5-0 in a Nedbank Cup last 32 round clash at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday night.
The goals were scored by a Henrico Botes hat-trick and the other two came from Mduduzi Nyanda and Vuyo Mere.
Stars scored three times in the first-half to knock the wind out of Dolphins and twice in the second half.
Botes scored a brace, with goals in the 11th and 30th minutes that put his side in control. Nyanda netted the side's second after 29 minutes.
In the 71st minute Botes scored again to give his side a 4-0 lead.
Mere added to the misery when he scored the final goal in the 76th minute.
Robert Ng'ambi, Nathan Paulse and Patrick Malokase had decent opportunities to score late in the game but failed to make their chances count.
