Peterhead wasted a glorious opportunity to pull off an upset as they lost 3-1 to 10-man Stenhousemuir after extra-time in the Ramsdens Cup second round.
Ryan Strachan had an injury-time penalty saved with the scores still level at 1-1, forcing the game into an extra half an hour.
The hosts broke the deadlock midway through the first half when David Cox sent a right-footed strike into the top-right corner before John Gemmell capitalised on a dreadful Cox backpass to pull the Warriors level after 63 minutes.
Chris Smith denied Strachan the chance to make the headlines from the spot in stoppage time following an incident that saw Ross Smith given his marching orders for a challenge on Fraser McLaren.
Stenhousemuir - a man light - then punished that squandered opportunity when Darren Smith converted from close range in the third minute of extra-time before Ross McNeil fired home from 12 yards at the death to compound Peterhead's woes.
