Elgin City 4-5 Annan Athletic

Annan Athletic got the better of Elgin City in a thrilling nine-goal Scottish League Two encounter.

Andrew Mitchell pulled Annan level after Jamie Duff had opened the scoring and Junior Ogen put the visitors ahead.

Darryl McHardy levelled and did so again after Peter Weatherson had put Annan back in front.

Two more Weatherson goals in the second half completed his hat-trick before McHardy emulated the feat with his third late on.
