WAVERLEY sailed into the lead with just six minutes gone.
On being fed by a Luke Cooper pass, Ryan Shepherd took on a man before cutting the ball into the path of Liam Lavery, who shot home.
Midway through the first half, the Teries struck again, Lavery forcing a great save, but Darren Munro rattling away the rebound.
In the second period, Gary Hastie hit the bar for Newtown.
Five minutes from the end, Waverley’s Lavery saw red after a second yellow.
And in injury time, Newtown reduced the leeway through a Scott Leitch strike.
