Adam Campbell made one and scored one as St. Mirren beat Hibernian 3-2 on Saturday.
The 19-year-old played on the right-hand side of the Buddies attack and after Ben Williams' own goal put the Saints in front, Campbell played a one-two with John McGinn before finishing expertly in the 22nd minute.
And three minutes later, Campbell crossed for Steven Thompson to head home a third. Terry Butcher's Hibees rallied in the second half but St. Mirren held on, with Campbell replaced in stoppage time and Conor Newton playing the whole game.
Campbell wasn't the only Magpies loanee on target at the weekend and James Tavernier notched his second goal for Rotherham.
He fired home the Millers' third in a 3-0 win over Shrewsbury - where he spent a brief period on loan at the start of the season - and played the full 90 minutes, while Haris Vuckic was introduced as an 82nd minute substitute.
Their goals overshadowed Jonas Gutierrez's debut for Norwich, with the Argentine starting against Hull City and playing 68 minutes as Chris Hughton's side won 1-0.
Shane Ferguson was a 61st minute substitute for Birmingham as they lost 2-0 at home to Yeovil while Romain Amalfitano didn't feature in Dijon's 2-2 draw at Racing Lens and Mehdi Abeid was suspended for Panathinaikos' 3-1 win at Veria.
