Second half does for Royalists

Hawick RA0

Heriot-Watt Uni4

Royal Albert more than held their own in a score-free first half, during which both sides played some good football on a heavy surface.

The hosts fell behind on the hour mark when Heriot-Watt took the lead through a well-worked goal and, two minutes later went further ahead.

Hawick heads refused to drop and only a superb save by the University keeper prevented Calvin Muttitt from reducing the leeway.

Hawick began to tire and the Students went on to net a further two times.
