Before the break, Greenlaw reduced the leeway.
On the hour mark, Kevin Strathdee notched a fourth for United on being set up by Caswell. Hawick now had the bit between their teeth and Ross Scott put the visitors into further arrears by waltzing his way out of four challenges before shooting into the net.
