East Stirling ended Stirling's winning run and extended their own 100 per cent record with a 3-1 victory at Forthbank.
It took the Shire just five minutes to hit the front as defender Michael Bolochoweckyj headed in Max Wright's corner.
Paul Quinn took advantage of sloppy defending by Stirling to double the away side's lead in the 24th minute.
East Stirling continued to do the running after the break and got a deserved third when Jordan McKechnie tapped home after Wright's shot hit the post.
Stirling striker Jordan White scored from six yards after good play by David Weatherston 12 minutes from time but it was merely a consolation as East Stirling moved to the top of League Two.
