Elgin City 2-3 Peterhead

Rory McAllister-inspired Peterhead came from behind twice to see off Elgin in a five-goal thriller.

Elgin opened the scoring through Allen McKenzie but Andrew Rodgers hit back with a close range finish.

Shane Sutherland restored Elgin's lead before Jamie Duff was sent off. Peterhead took advantage with McAllister netting his first.

And the striker grabbed the winner in the 74th minute when he headed in a cross from Graeme Sharp.
