Scottish Cup: Morton and Montrose win third round replays

Greenock Morton eased their way into the fourth round of the Scottish Cup, overcoming League Two Peterhead 3-0 in a replay.

The Championship side were ahead after 10 minutes through Kerr Waddell as they set up a trip to East Fife.

Robert Thomson doubled the advantage in the 61st minute before Chris Millar completed the scoring seven minutes from time.

League One Montrose edged to a thrilling 4-3 win in their replay at League Two Annan thanks to a dominant first-half performance.

Montrose were four goals to the good inside half an hour thanks to a Martin Rennie penalty and strikes from Martyn Fotheringham, Paul Watson and Andrew Steeves.

But Annan threatened to launch a remarkable comeback after the break as Aidan Smith struck from the spot after 61 minutes before finding the net again in the 79th minute.

Ayrton Sonkur made it 4-3 with six minutes of normal time remaining but Montrose held out to make sure of a home tie with Dundee United.
