Scottish league Two: Stranraer 1-5 Peterhead

Shane Sutherland scored twice as Peterhead surged to victory at Stranraer.

The striker opened the scoring after he was picked out expertly by Rory McAllister, then made it 2-0 after heading home Steven Noble's long ball.

James Stevenson scored before half-time to end the match as a contest.

Craig Malcolm pulled one back, but Ally Gilchrist headed in a fourth before Leighton McIntosh poked in a fifth to end a miserable day for the Blues.
