Peterhead   1 - 6   St Mirren

Peterhead v St Mirren

Cup - Peterhead 1-6 St Mirren

Paul McGowan bagged a hat-trick as St Mirren eased into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup.

The on-loan forward headed home from six yards then set up Aaron Mooy for a close-range finish.

McGowan slipped in his second and a shot from Paul McQuade squirmed under John Bateman before the interval.

McGowan found the net with a low strike early in the second half, while McQuade added a similar finish before Graeme Sharp grabbed a late consolation.

Danny Lennon's side have struggled in front of goal all season but once McGowan made the early breakthrough in the replay the visitors clicked in the final third.

However, the game might have been different had Peterhead striker Dave Ross not missed a glorious chance after 20 minutes.

Jim Goodwin's sloppy pass allowed the striker through on goal, but Paul Gallacher spread himself well to turn the effort round the post.

The hosts would regret that missed opportunity two minutes later when Jure Travner swung in a teasing ball from the left and McGowan had the simplest of tasks to nod home.

That was St Mirren's first goal since Steven Thomson struck twice against Inverness on Boxing Day and silenced Balmoor's largest crowd of the season.

Soon after, McGowan turned provider, twisting and turning to pull the ball across the goal from the byline, and Mooy was perfectly placed to turn home.

Worse was to come for the Second Division side, who earned a 0-0 draw in the first meeting of the sides in Paisley, as Travner delivered from the left, this time picking out McGowan with a low ball.

Despite the presence of Callum Macdonald, McGowan was able to turn and pick his spot low to Bateman's left.

McQuade added a fourth on the stroke of half-time. The former Cowdenbeath man was given time to turn in the area following a corner and, although Bateman got a touch, he could not keep the shot out.

Two minutes after the restart the Buddies netted a fifth, and it was McGowan who notched his hat-trick.

Again the Peterhead defence were slack, and McGowan had room to turn and confidently fire past the beleaguered Bateman.

McQuade bagged his second of the night with a fine curling finish before the home side staged a late rally to give their fans something to cheer.

Substitutes Nicky Clark and Conor Gethins were involved in the build-up, with the former teeing up Ryan Strachan for a shot at goal.

His effort was blocked, but Sharp raced in to drill the ball home to lift the spirits of the home support.
