Match ends, Brechin City 1, Stranraer 3.
Brechin City 1-3 Stranraer
A first-half hat-trick from Martin Grehan gave Stranraer their first win in five matches as they beat Brechin.
Grehan scored his first in the 26th minute after Mark Docherty set him up from six yards.
The second came from a penalty, after Paul McLean fouled Andrew Stirling in the area and picked up a yellow card.
Grehan completed his treble when he fired home from just inside the area, and Andrew Jackson's second-half reply proved only to be consolation.
