Legion earn unlikely draw

Hawick Legion 1

Gala Rovers 1

BAL DIVISION A

Giving their best show of the season, bottom of the table Hawick Legion upset the applecart, holding leaders Gala Rovers to a draw.

Legion were on the back foot for most of the match, but defended extremely well and gave nothing away, despite Jordan Steele hitting the homesters’ crossbar.

Gala had the upper hand in a non-scoring first half, in which Jory Robertson went close to netting for Legion with a great effort which was just off target.

In the second period, during which Hawick keeper Michael White pulled off several fine saves, Legion broke the deadlock against the run of play through a Jody Easdon goal.

Minutes later, however, Rovers equalised through Ben McGregor to gain a share of the spoils.
