Lewis Sivewright’s hat trick fired Carnoustie Panmure into the second round of the Scottish Cup. The striker scored twice early on and put Carnoustie 4-3 ahead after a stunning Ferry fightback.
Sivewright’s netted twice in the opening 10 minutes, the first a simple tap in from Connor McFarlane’s cut back and the second a stunning volley from the edge of the box.
Jay Black powered his way into the Ferry box before slotting home Carnoustie’s third after 17 minutes.
The hosts did pull one back after half an hour. Lewis Mitchell’s initial effort was cleared off the line by Greg Oliphant, but the ball broke back for the Ferry man who found the net.
Ferry set up an intriguing second half when Caswell turned the ball home at the back post five minutes before half time.
It was clear that the next goal was going to be crucial, and it went Ferry’s way minutes into the second half. Kai Meldrum delivered a low free kick that Younger flicked past Samuel Black. It was a remarkable comeback from Ferry, who had looked dead and buried after 20 minutes.
Both sides were looking for a fourth goal but couldn’t find the break through. Ferry looked to have gone in front when Rory Smith delivered a low cross to Dylan Mill, but his shot didn’t hit the target.
It would prove to be a costly miss as Lennon McIntosh was downed in the box. Sivewright stepped up and drilled the ball past Cummings to complete his hat trick and put Carnoustie back in front.
The visitors completed the scoring three minutes from time as Jay Black was released by a Sivewright backheel, before lashing the ball past Cummings at the near post.
