Stranraer 5-0 Peterhead

In-form Jamie Longworth scored a double as Stranraer moved into fourth place in Scottish League One by thrashing Peterhead 5-0 at Stair Park.

Willie Gibson put Stranraer in front in the 20th minute with a fantastic free-kick into the top corner.

Longworth added to that after the break with a fine finish before Chris Aitken's penalty after Ryan Strachan brought down Craig Malcolm.

A close finish from Longworth came before Daniel Stoney late striker.

Longworth's double took the striker's total to seven goals in eight games.

Peterhead had started the game one point ahead of Stranraer, but they could have suffered a bigger defeat as goalkeeper David Mitchell had to be altert to deny Jordon Brown, Rory McAllister and James Redman.
