Rory McAllister's double set promotion-chasing Peterhead on their way to a 4-2 win at East Stirling.
The Blue Toon had lost only two of the last 16 meetings between the sides and they broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute when McAllister tucked away Dean Cowie's right-wing cross.
Three minutes later McAllister was celebrating again after he forced home David Cox's centre.
Andrew Rodgers and Scott McLaughlin were both on the scoresheet before the interval with clinical finishes as the visitors raced into a four-goal half-time lead.
Aftre the break Steven Jackson's curling effort from distance found the bottom corner and Jamie Glasgow turned in Andrew Stirling's 90th-minute corner to make the scoreline respectable for Shire.
