Two early goals from Alan Brazil set up a comfortable CIS Cup win for Arbroath.
Brazil took just 19 seconds to fire past Rovers' keeper David Scott and five minutes later the lively striker doubled his tally with a free header.
Brian Scott made it three with a great half-volley and Barry Sellars added a superb 25-yard drive.
The visitors rallied late in the game and Roddy Hunter found the net with a header before Ian Chisholm tapped home from a corner for a second consolation.
