A battling performance saw us record our third away win of the season at Ochilview last Saturday.
There were three changes to the side which had lost to Forfar with Kieran Gibbons suspended while Pat Scullion and Ross Calwell dropped to the bench.
With 12 minutes gone Scotland played Summers through on goal but Brett put in a timely tackle, while at the other end a shot from the edge of the box from Beaumont was parried by McCabe.
Stirling then tried his luck with a 30 yard shot which went over the bar, then Byrne sent in a cross which was intercepted by Murray with Spence ready to pounce.
Beaumont then sent a free kick into the Warriors goalmouth but Kerr just failed to connect.
Roman then done well to turn a header from Millar around his post at the expense of a corner.
Byrne then saw a shot headed clear by the home defence and as the first half wound down a 20 yard drive by Beaumont lacked power and was easily gathered by McCabe.
After a goal less first half we saw four goals in a ten minute period in the second half with Cowden opening the scoring in 51 minutes when McDaid set up Ross CALDWELL to slot the ball past McCabe from 14 yards.
Stenny quickly replied and a 25 yard shot from Gilhaney was tipped over the bar by Roman. However in 55 minutes we doubled our advantage when Brett sent the ball through to Declan BYRNE who shot home on his debut from 12 yards.
Four minutes later the home side pulled a goal back. Roman saved a close range shot from Gilahney with Millar crashing the rebound off the crossbar before Colin McMENAMIN nodded the ball home.
Two minutes later McMENAMIN got his side back level when he got on the end of a free kick from Stirling to send a glancing header past Beaumont.
However with 11 minutes remaining we grabbed what proved to be the winner when McDaid set up Lewis MILNE who sent a low shot past McCabe.
