Peterhead 2-3 Brechin City

Robert Thomson's double helped Brechin to their first League One win of the season as they beat 10-man Peterhead.

Thomson gave the visitors the lead with a stunning strike but Peterhead drew level when Scott Ross found Shane Sutherland in space inside the box.

Dene Shields restored Brechin's lead when he converted Willie Dyer's cross before Rory McAllister made it 2-2 with a close-range finish.

Scott Ross was dismissed for violent conduct three minutes from time.
