Cowdenbeath shade thriller

Greg Stewart and Kane Hemmings both netted twice as strugglers Cowdenbeath beat Hamilton 4-3.

The visitors opened the scoring in the fifth minute when Stewart sent the ball past Hamilton shot-stopper Kevin Cuthbert from the middle of the box.

Cowdenbeath doubled their lead four minutes later when Hemmings found the bottom corner from close range, before he scored his second in the 20th minute when his right-footed effort landed in the back of the net.

Jimmy Nicholl's side flew out of the blocks in the second half and went 4-0 up 30 seconds after the restart when Stewart fired in his second from the centre of the box.

But the hosts pulled one back in the 66th minute when Anthony Andreu steered the ball past visiting goalkeeper Thomas Flynn, before James Keatings scored from the spot after Jason Scotland was fouled in the box.

Andreu made it 4-3 in the 86th minute but Cowdenbeath held on to take all three points.
