After putting Saints ahead, Paul Dummett hauled down Jon Daly for a 43rd-minute penalty the striker converted before Stuart Armstrong's long-range effort gave United a deserved half-time lead.
Errors littered the hosts' game, though, and ex-United striker Steven Thompson equalised with his fourth goal in three games before Brian McLean was sent-off. Marc McAusland put the Buddies in front after 65 minutes and a rare David van Zanten goal after 78 minutes completed victory for the visitors, rendering Barry Douglas' 90th-minute free-kick mere consolation.
