The hosts, who were already relegated heading into the final day of the season, raced into a two-goal lead courtesy of Daniel Denholm and Kyle Connell.

Cove Rangers pulled a goal back just before half-time when Leighton McIntosh was brought down inside the area and Mitch Megginson scored from the spot.

The Diamonds equalised on the hour mark after Ferry turned into his own goal and Peterhead missed the opportunity to take the lead again from the penalty spot when Scott Brown slipped and missed from 12 yards.

Euan Henderson scored four goals as 10-man Alloa came from a goal down to thrash play-off bound Montrose 4-1.
