Match ends, Raith Rovers 1, Cowdenbeath 3.
Colin Nish scored a hat-trick as Cowdenbeath moved five points clear of the Championship relegation zone.
Nish opened the scoring after Raith failed to deal with a cross from Martin Scott.
His second came midway through the second half - a neat finish following Robbie Buchanan's cross.
The striker's treble was complete when he reacted quickest to convert Jon Robertson's corner before Mark Stewart headed a late consolation for Raith.
