Hawick’s amateur football teams enjoyed a winning weekend in their various competitions.

Two second-half goals booked Hawick Legion a spot in the semi-final of the Wright Cup.

After Tweeddale had taken the lead in the first minute of the match Legion were in the driving seat for the rest of the first period.

However, the Hawick side had nothing to show for this as they failed to find the net.

Minutes into the second half Legion did produce the scoring touch though when Callum Hope hit home a penalty.

Legion in turn edged in front through an Andrew McFarlane strike after Jody Easdon, Steven Lowe and Cesar Bento had did the spade work through some good approach play.

Tweeddale gained the upper hand from here on but try as they might, could not add to their tally.

Following a run of defeats, Waverley returned to the victory trail with a muted 3-0 Division A win at Ancrum.

Jason Inglis put Waverley in front during the early part of the game in heading in a Luke Cooper cross.

Towards the half-hour mark, Cooper put Ancrum into further arrears. Ancrum then had a chance to pull a goal back on being awarded a penalty. Stuart Spence however, shot over the bar from the resultant spot kick.

In the second half, Davis Hope put Waverley further ahead as well as completing the scoring.

Playing a Division B clash, at home to Chirnside United Colts, Hawick United ran out 6-2 winners.

A Ross Scott hat-trick helped steer United to a clear cut victory. Scott Storrie, Colin Richardson and Dean Fry (penalty) were the other United scorers.
