Three and easy for Jedburgh men

Jed Legion 3

Gala Hotspur 1

The opening period was an evenly-contested affair with the first real chance falling to the visitors, but Jed goalkeeper Sean Jack got down well to make a smart save at his back post.

Legion opened their account on the half-hour mark, Daniel Gillie on target with a brilliant header from a Graeme Hyland cross.

Jed then quickly doubled their lead, Dean Jeffrey with a fine half-volley from the edge of the box. They increased the gap 15 minutes into the second half, Nathan Gillie finishing off a fine move from the edge of the box after good build-up play from Daniel Chandler.

The visitors reduced the deficit soon after with a smart chip from inside the box. They should have had a second to make it a nervy final few minutes for the home side, but the substitute blazed the ball over the bar with only Jack to beat.
