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.

It was top league against bottom league, and Carnoustie didn’t take long to show their class as they opened the scoring after two minutes. Some quick passing saw Connor McFarlane released down the right, and he squared the ball to Lewis Sivewright, who had a simple tap in from close range.

Sivewright’s first goal was simple, while his second nine minutes later was spectacular. Matthew Younger’s headed the ball into Sivewright’s path, and he punished the Ferry defender with a stunning volley that flew past Brandon Cummings into the top corner.

Ferry had got off to a nightmare start, with their first chance coming through a Kai Meldrum free kick. The midfielder saw his low free kick pushed around the post by Samuel Black.

Shortly after, Jay Black powered his way into the Ferry box before slotting home Carnoustie’s third after 17 minutes.

Meldrum found Hari Caswell as Ferry looked for a glimmer of hope, but he was denied by Samuel Black.

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. 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.

Mitchell, who had started Ferry’s comeback nearly completed it when he connected with a Meldrum cross, but he turned the ball wide.

A goal line header from Charlie Castle denied Adam Shepherd as Carnoustie looked to regain the lead.

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.
