Scottish Cup: Doughty Deveronvale end Peterhead hopes
Deveronvale brushed aside third division Peterhead 3-2 to book their place in tomorrow’s Scottish Cup third round draw .
The Highland League side were three goals up before half-time with Chris Blackhall and Graeme Rodger both scoring inside the opening ten minutes and Scott Fraser netting a third eight minutes from the break.
Peterhead predictably came back in the second half and Michele Lombardi was sent off for the home side after 72 minutes which gave the league side a fresh impetus.
Ross Smith pulled a goal back nine minutes from the end and three minutes later Bryan Deasley made it 3-2 to ensure an uncomfortable finish for the Highland League side.
But the ten men held on for a famous victory and it gave manager Charlie Charlesworth another league scalp after he helped Lossiemouth beat Albion Rovers in a previous season.
Nairn County led three times against Clyde at Broadwood but had to settle for a 3-3 draw in an entertaining tie. Conor Gethins put Nairn ahead but Kevin Watt hit back moments later. Gregg Main stunned Clyde again when he netted for Nairn before half-time.
Nairn looked to have won it but Stefan McCluskey came up with the equalising goal with just four minutes remaining.
Edinburgh City pulled off a 3-1 win at Montrose with Robbie Ross contributing a goal in each half. Scott Fusco scored the clincher with 11 minutes left to stun Montrose.
Stirling Albion enjoyed the distraction from their woes in the league as they beat Dalbeattie Star 5-0. Steven Weir scored twice in four minutes to ease their nerves. Weir got his first from the penalty spot in the 26th minute after Curtis Wilson was sent off for the home team and then added his second shortly afterwards. There was no way back for Dalbeattie after that and Stirling cruised to their third round spot.
Elgin City stamped their authority on their tie with St Cuthbert Wanderers and had a three-goal cushion at half-time with Brian Cameron, Stuart Leslie and Craig Gunn all on target and it was enough to see them through 3-1.
Berwick Rangers left it late to see off Wick Academy 1-0. Around 200 fans made the long trip to Shielfield and Wick should have been rewarded with an early goal but captain Sam Mackay saw his penalty saved by Youssef Bejaoui.
Berwick dominated after that with Michael Gray the busier goalkeeper but he was beaten by a John Ferguson header which hit the crossbar as the first half ended goalless.
Mackay almost made amends for his penalty miss early in the second half when he was though on Bejaoui but the goalkeeper again saved well.
Wick took encouragement and Grant Steven almost equalised with a header which was touched on to the crossbar by Bejaoui.
Damien Gielty, a substitute, almost made the breakthrough with a header which was well saved by Gray but it was the home side who snatched victory in the closing stages when Steven tripped Stuart Noble in the penalty area. Lee Currie made no mistake from the spot to put Berwick through.
East Stirlingshire took a firm grip at Fraserburgh with David Greenhill giving them the lead after 13 minutes and Kevin Turner adding a second before half-time. They held on to win 2-1 and Fraserburgh had Ryan Christie and Graham Johnston sent off in the closing stages as their frustrations bubbled over.
Cove Rangers were top scorers in the round as they crushed Golspie Sutherland 7-0 and there was no doubt about the outcome from the moment that Connor Scully opened the scoring after only two minutes.
Alan Pollock scored twice as Clachnacuddin beat Turriff 4-2 and Bonnyrigg Rose edged Stirling University 1-0.
Buckie Thistle gained a creditable 0-0 draw at home to Annan Athletic but the league side will be favourites to go through in the replay.
Huntly looked to be going through when they led Inverurie 3-1 but the home side came back to win 4-3.
Queen’s Park comfortably saw off Irvine Meadow 3-0 in a tie that didn’t live up to its potential for an upset.
