Annan Athletic 4-2 Berwick Rangers

Annan Athletic beat Berwick Rangers and replaced them in Scottish League Two's top four.

Stuart McColm converted David Hopkirk's cross to give Annan the lead and Josh Todd slotted in their second.

And McColm's cross from the left found its way into the net before the half-time interval.

Paul Willis's neat finish and Blair Henderson's strike reduced Berwick's arrears but Peter Weatherson netted a late penalty for the hosts.
