CFC Bowholm 2 Hawick Legion 1
LEGION made the early running in this bottom of the table battle through some probing raids, writes John Slorance.
It was Bowholm who did the scoring though by sailing into the lead against the run of play in the ninth minute when Jordan McLeary robbed Legion’s Thomas Scott of the ball in the centre of the park and raced forward to fire home.
With 26 minutes gone Bowholm added to their tally when Stephen Muir touched in a Lewis Hawes corner kick at the back post.
Legion had the upper hand for the remainder of the first half after this but just could not put the pressure into goals.
Seven minutes into the second period however Legion eventually did the business. Jody Easdon floated a corner kick over the face of the goalmouth and Chris Brown produced the scoring touch in beating the Bowholm keeper, Lee Field, with a header.
With Bowholm on the defensive, Legion piled on the pressure for the remainder of the game in a bid to snatch an equaliser.
Bowholm however stood firm and held out to record their first win of the season.
