Rhymers on song in Forsyth Cup

Hawick Legion 1

Earlston Rhymers 2

(aet) Forsyth Cup semi finals

Earlston marched into the semi-finals of the Forsyth Cup, named after their former chairman Jimmy.

Legion missed a barrowload of chances during the game before taking the lead on 15 minutes as Jory Robertson floated over a corner kick which was headed home by Jody Easdon.

Midway through the second half, Earlston’s Neil Laidlaw showed how chances should be taken with a lovely goal.

Gary Lothian grabbed the winner in the opening minutes of extra time.
