The striker nodded in the opener on 17 minutes before he was tripped to win a penalty which he converted.
Veteran midfielder Allan Johnston bagged his first Queens goal with a well placed shot on 55 minutes.
Derek Carcary reduced the deficit but a strike from Rocco Quinn put the home side back in charge and substitute Gavin Reilly added a late fifth goal.
Queens progress into the next round after a much improved performance from last week and they should now face Dundee at Dens Park next week with renewed confidence.
