Arbroath 1 (Doris 47) Stranraer 2 (Longworth 2, Aitken 62)
Stranraer moved to within two points of second-place Dunfermline with victory over Arbroath in Scottish League One.
Jamie Longworth headed home Sean Winter's cross to give the visitors the lead.
But Ross Chisholm found Steven Doris early in the second half and the on-loan Dundee forward nodded Arbroath level.
Christopher Aitken's free-kick flew into the net to put Stranraer ahead again.

Arbroath 0 Rangers 3
Rangers eased to victory over Arbroath at Gayfield to maintain their perfect SPFL League One record this season.
Less than three minutes in, an unmarked Jon Daly poked Rangers in front.
Lewis Macleod's shot cannoned in off Arbroath defender Bradley Donaldson to double the visitors lead and Nicky Clark headed a third before half-time.
Daly and Arbroath's Chris Scott were both denied by the post after the break in a game in which Rangers took their league "goals-for" tally to 50.
Ally McCoist's side now have 13 wins out of 13 in the league, sitting 11 points clear of Dunfermline Athletic with a game in hand.
They will now look to take that form into the Scottish Cup fourth-round tie at Falkirk on Saturday.
11 points clear in League One
Rangers won comfortably but only three of their 17 shots on goal were on target.
Ally McCoist's side had not scored in the first-half of the five games preceding this match.
Arbroath, player-managed by Paul Sheerin, remain eighth after rarely troubling their visitors on a freezing night in the north east.
There was still room, however, for a sentimental late substitute appearance for striker Steven Milne, who brought his 16-year professional football career to an end after this match to pursue a career with the police.
Scotland international Lee Wallace's performance for Rangers was dynamic and strong, dancing round opposition defenders on several occasions to carry his team forward.
The former Hearts player's skill drew a foul from Red Lichties full-back David Banjo and Ian Black's ensuing free-kick was diverted past goalkeeper Scott Morrison by the toe of Daly's boot.
It gives the Irishman a 16th goal of the campaign following his move from Scottish Premiership side Dundee United.
Bobby Linn, the home side's most menacing player on the night, had one tame half-chance before Rangers scored a second.
Arbroath player-manager Paul Sheerin was on the pitch for the first 68 minutes.
This time, Bilel Mohsni helped Macleod cut in from the left and his arrowed shot ricocheted off Michael Travis's head and Donaldson's foot on it's way into the net.
Sebastien Faure's missed header and Daly's weak chip preceded Clark's flick header past Morrison from a Wallace free-kick, giving Rangers a comfortable lead at the break.
There were no takers for Linn's cut-back as Arbroath pushed for a way back into a game that was nearly killed off when Daly controlled brilliantly, only to see Morrison tip his effort on to the post.
The hosts also struck the upright when Lee Erwin released Chris Scott, but the 17-year-old's low drive rebounded off the face of the upright.
Wallace nearly got the goal he deserved with a quarter of an hour remaining, stabbing a left-foot effort just past the post from a tight angle.

Stenhousemuir 3 (Lynch 49, Malone 73, Douglas 79Ā) Arbroath 2
(Travis 64, Erwin 83)
Stenhousemuir got the better of Arbroath in a five-goal Scottish League One encounter.
Sean Lynch's chip beat Arbroath's Scott Morrison to give Stenny the lead just after the break only for Michael Travis to head Arbroath level.
ddie Malone's goal from six yards and Errol Douglas's strike put the hosts into a commanding position.
Lee Erwin pulled one back for the visitors, firing into the top corner, but it was too little, too late.

Lee Erwin scored a late penalty
as Arbroath earned a draw in a thriller against nine-man
East Fife. Alan Cook's brilliant
curling effort put Arbroath after the break.
Liam Buchanan levelled in the
70th minute with a left-footed drive and the striker headed in his second
five minutes later.
Scott McBride was sent off for
hauling Robert Linn down and Erwin stroked home the spot-kick before Gary
Thom was also shown a red card.
Despite that dismissal for a
second bookable offence, Arbroath could not take advantage.

Scottish Cup Round 3
2 November 2013
Arbroath 0 Brechin City 2 Jackson 57Ā, Trouten 88
Two second-half goals took Brechin City into the fourth round of the Scottish Cup at the expense of Arbroath.
Neither side created many chances in the first half, though Arbroath's Michael Travis did threaten with a header wide.
Andrew Jackson was well placed to convert Alan Trouten's cross and give Brechin the lead after the break.
And Trouten sealed a well-deserved victory with a powerful strike near the end of the match.

Hay 39′ (pen) Ryan 61′ Barr 90′
Brechin ended seven-game winless streak with a fine victory over local rivals Arbroath at Glebe Park.
The Hedgemen started well and finally made a sustained period of pressure count just before half-time.
David Banjo brought Andrew Ryan down in the box and Graham Hay stepped up to dispatch the resulting penalty hard into the centre of the goal.
Brechin doubled their advantage on the hour mark. Ryan made up for an earlier miss by slotting Steven Robb's cross home with a controlled right-foot finish.
Arbroath gave them a tetchy last 10 minutes when Alan Cook pulled one back for the visitors with a smart finish into the bottom corner.
But Brechin wrapped up the points in the fifth minute of injury time when Derek Carcary found Robert Barr in the box and he smashed home to earn his side's first victory since 24 August.
