B League battle of Legions heats up

Hawick Legion2

Jed Legion1

HAVING recorded two wins over Hawick this season, table-topping Jed received a jolt in this clash of the Legions.

Scott Duncan put the Teries ahead on the quarter-hour mark, bursting through the Jed defence to shoot home after running onto a Callum Hope pass.

Early in the second period, Hawick increased their lead with Duncan again emerging their marksman, when stroking a shot out of the reach of the Jed keeper following another good run.

Hawick should have put the game to bed, but passed up several great chances and with 15 minutes left Jed reduced the arrears, Nathan Gillie finishing smartly from the edge of the box.

From here on, Jed bombarded the home goalmouth in a bid for an equaliser, but Hawick held out to gain full honours.

Match day sponsor for Jed was C & P Swailes and match ball sponsor was Doddie Ferguson.
