Montrose 3-5 Berwick Rangers

Scottish Football League

Strike duo Stuart Noble and Darren Gribben both scored twice as Berwick Rangers beat Montrose in a eight-goal thriller.

The visitors fell behind after just nine minutes when Martin Boyle powered home a header from Scott Johnston's cross.

But Gribben equalised in the 20th minute with a precise finish from 12 yards before heading Berwick in front five minutes later.

Montrose were level five minutes after half-time when Paul Lunan buried a header into the bottom corner.

The Borderers went back in front when Noble blasted home on the hour-mark, and he swept in from close range to give them a two-goal advantage 11 minutes from time.

Douglas Cameron rifled home to give the hosts hope but Ross Gray notched Berwick's fifth in stoppage time with a left-foot effort.
