Hawick Legion Rovers 2
Kelso Thistle 2
BAL DIVISION C
In a hard fought game in which both sides had their moments, a draw was a fitting result.
Rovers made the early running and after Luke Cooper had come close to scoring, Jamie Dickson drove a shot against the post.
Thistle, in turn, took the lead, but Rovers equalised before the break when Luke Cooper blasted a Davie Fraser cross into the top of the net.
After Rovers’ keeper James Gillespie had thwarted Kelso with some fine saves following the changeover, the homesters sailed ahead.
Good link-up play between Fraser and John Shankie dented the Thistle defence and the move ended in Shankie scoring with a right-footed drive.
Ten minutes from time, Kelso got on a level pegging when Rovers’ Gary Moffat had the misfortune to turn the ball into his own net in attempting to clear a cross from the left.
