Sharkey show gets Legion the points

Coldstream Amateurs 1 Hawick Legion 2

AIDED by a tip top show from manager Clinton Sharkey, who was playing in goal for the first time ever in what has been a long footballing career, Hawick Legion gained full points.

Legion took the lead near the quarter hour mark through a well taken goal from Jody Easdon who tucked a shot into the net after Jory Robertson had did the spade work.

After squandering several chances, Legion went further ahead in the second period. A long Sharkey clearance was touched on by Bryan Tait and Callum Hope did the rest by racing in to score.

Coldstream came bouncing back and stand in keeper Sharkey who had been forced to pull on the gloves as there was no other keeper available showed his mettle in tipping a well struck shot over the bar.

Within minutes of this Sharkey pulled out the stops with two other great saves.

The ‘Steamers’ then reduced the leeway but duly failed to add to their tally.
