Hawick Waverley 7
Duns Amateurs 4
FORSYTH CUP SECOND ROUND
HAWICK Waverley moved into the quarter-finals of the Forsyth Cup after an 11-goal thriller.
Playing their fourth game in eight days, Waverley opened the scoring on the quarter-hour mark when a great passing move involving Ian Turnbull, Mark Deans and Alan Campbell ended in Taylor Hope netting.
Deans then stretched Waverley’s lead, slotting away a Hope cross before Ross McLeod rattled in a third, following a mazy run.
Minutes later, McLeod put the Dingers into further arrears from a Craig McCutcheon pass. Duns hit back to reduce the leeway, but Hope soon restored Waverley’s four-goal advantage, polishing off a slick move in style.
The visitors in turn pulled a goal back before the interval, but McCutcheon’s shot after the break sailed into the net after taking a deflection off a Duns player.
Duns scored again to make it 6-3, but Waverley were still very much in the driving seat and substitute Stuart Drysdale got his name on the scoresheet with a superbly-struck 25-yard effort, Hawick’s 47th goal in their last 10 outings.
The visitors notched their fourth in the closing stages.
