McQuoid's hat-trick was the first of his senior career
Josh McQuoid's hat-trick helped Bournemouth secure an FA Cup second-round spot at the expense of Tranmere.
A close-range double from McQuoid and Marc Pugh's stunning long-range effort gave the hosts an early 3-0 lead.
Aaron Cresswell's deflected free-kick, an Ian Goodison header and a close-range finish from Ian Thomas-Moore got Tranmere back on level terms.
But an expertly taken third by McQuoid and a super strike by Liam Feeney gave the Cherries a thrilling victory.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told BBC Radio Solent: "We keep conceding from positions we shouldn't. I think we need to recover from setbacks.
"We've got to be positive, we won the game 5-3 and it was a really good attacking performance.
"The crowd have come and seen eight goals and they've got to go home happy with that."
Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside: "That's probably the worst start to a game we've made since I've been at the club.
"To be fair to the lads, they kept battling and they never wilted.
"I know it's a stupid thing to say when you've been beaten 5-3, but effort-wise I don't think anyone can square anything at any of the lads today."
