A late strike from Livingston's Myles Hippolyte denied Peterhead a famous Quarter Final victory in the Petrofac Training Cup.

The Balmoor side went toe to toe with John McGlyn's Livingston squad in a breathless first half and despite allowing the visitors the better of the early chances - Gary Glen threatened twice - were pleased to reach the break level.

The second period was lacklustre from both teams until Jim McInally introduced forwards David Cox and Andy Rodgers into the fray.

The usually deadly Rory McAllister was hauled off after picking up a yellow card and it fell to two subsitutes to grab the headlines.

With the game deep into extra time, Hippolyte's strike finally broke down Peterhead's resilient back line in the 113th minute.

Rodgers then saw red for erupting at referee Brian Colvin when the official failed to spot a clear indirect free kick for the Blue Toon inside the Livingston penalty box.

Substitute Jordan Brown rescued a point for Peterhead by scoring four minutes from time in a draw with Brechin City.

Brechin earned a penalty just before the break, but Andrew Jackson could not convert.

The Glebe Park men eventually broke the deadlock at the start of the second period thanks to Paul McLean's instinctive finish.

Despite their dominance, City could not hang on as Brown nodded in a late equaliser from Graeme Sharp's cross.

Blue Toon boss Jim McInally was left ruing spurned chances and Rory McAllister's late red card as Peterhead slumped to a 2-1 defeat against his former charges, Greenock Morton.

Morton's Stefan Milojevic poked the visitors in front moments after the break when he latched onto a Joe McKee cross.

But the Serbian defender quickly spoiled the party for Morton, catching Andy Rodgers on the edge of the box and conceding a penalty which Rory McAllister coolly dispatched.

The star striker saw red late on for two bookable offences before Thomas O'Ware broke Peterhead hearts with a late winner.

Peterhead demolish Montrose in Challenge Cup first round

In this afternoon's Petrofac Training Cup first round, Peterhead FC demolished former League Two rivals Montrose 3-0.

The Blue Toon's triple-threat strike force of Andy Rodgers, Rory McAllister and new signing Jamie Stevenson netted one goal apiece in a blistering first 27 minutes before Jim McInally's side closed the game out.

The Gable Endies cause was not helped when Graham Webster and Gary Wood were both shown straight red cards either side of the interval.

Blue Toon share the spoils in 2-2 friendly with Shire.

Peterhead FC drew 2-2 away to East Stirlingshire yesterday. Andy Rodgers netted both goals for the Blue Toon in a friendly tie against Craig Tully's new side.

The striker opened the scoring with a curling shot before launching his side two goals into the lead from the penalty spot.

The referee had pointed to the spot after Jordon Brown was brought down rounding the Shire keeper.

Poor discipline cost Peterhead at the other end but once again manager Jim McInally stressed the performance was more important than the final scoreline.

McInally said: "We went two up quite early and to be quite honest it could have been four or five, the way we were playing.

"We played some unbelievable stuff. Andy Rodgers scored an out of this world goal and after Andy put in Jordon, Jordon was brought down in the box and Andy scored the penalty.

"We did some really good stuff in the first half then gave away a really sloppy goal with Sharpie being caught trying to head a ball back to Graeme Smith.

"I wouldn't have termed it the 'first team' or 'starting XI' and after we made all our changes the last half and hour was really poor."

"Enough's enough now, let's get started with the season.
