Ayr United 2 Peterhead 3

Sat 15 Nov 2014

Blue Toon fan favourite Rory McAllister bagged his first hat trick of the season to secure all three points against a dogged Ayr side today. The result helped Jim McInally's men leapfrog The Honest Men into sixth place in Scottish League One, only five points off leaders Morton.

The 27-year-old hitman netted in the eighth minute to give the visitors the lead at the break. Former Scotland international Craig Beattie levelled ten minutes after the interval before two penalties within three minutes late in the match set up a tense finish.

Jamie Stevenson was brought down inside the Ayr box on 70 minutes and McAllister - unnervingly accurate from the spot - slide the ball past Hutton.

Moments late goalkeeping counterpart Graeme Smith in the Peterhead goal brought down Ryan Donnelly. Former Blue Toon captain Scott McLaughlin netted to set up a breathless finale.

But with only 10 minutes left on referee Craig Charleston's watch, McAllister sealed a near-perfect performance with a third goal, sending McInally and the Peterhead bench into raptures.
