Scottish League Two leaders hammered East Stirlingshire to maintain their five-point advantage.

Jordon Brown got on the end of a Steven Noble cross to nod the hosts ahead and a Jordan Tapping own goal stretched Peterhead's lead.

Shire's Chris Townsley conceded a penalty and Rory McAllister converted from 12 yards in first-half stoppage time.

Andy Rodgers lashed in the fourth and final goal after the interval.
