An under-strength Jed side slumped to their first defeat of the season against an experienced Gordon outfit.
Craig Livingstone was tormentor-in-chief for the visitors, scoring a hat-trick, with Tait and Brown also on the Gordon scoresheet.
A deflected Nathan Gillie effort just before the break and a Daniel Gillie free kick early in the second half took the home side to within a goal of their opponents at 3-2. But the dismissal of Nathan Gillie just after the break made Jed’s task extremely difficult. Both teams failed from the spot in the closing stages.
