Duns avenged their league title loss to Hawick – thanks to a Daniel Pattenden double.

The pacey striker had bagged five goals in last year’s U15 final, and was a constant threat to the Teries’ rearguard 12 months later.

However, it was Hawick who took the lead when Dale Whillans converted a spot kick after Steven Drummond was adjudged to have been fouled midway through the first half. But within minutes, Pattenden had equalised with a fine finish past Kerr Brown in the Hawick goal.

Duns created the better chances during the second period with Robbie Aitchison and Pattenden firing wide.

Extra time was looming until Aitchison made up for his earlier miss with a low shot across Brown five minutes from the end.

Two minutes later, Pattenden used his pace to breeze past four Hawick defenders and round Brown to tap into the empty net.
