West Barns Star 2 Hawick Waverley 3 (after extra time)

BEVERIDGE CUP QUARTER FINAL

Hawick Waverley will play Gala Fairydean Rovers in the semi final of the Beveridge Cup against Gala Fairydean Rovers tomorrow night (Tuesday, 6.15pm) at Wilton Lodge Park following an excellent extra time win at West Barns.

Following a no scoring first half the hosts broke the deadlock after the changeover.

Waverley came rallying back and Darren Munro hit home an equaliser when beating the Star keeper all the way with a raging 25 yard drive.

With no addition to the scoring the cup tie went into extra time and in the early part Liam Lavery put Waverley in front by nodding in a Scott Craig cross.

Minutes later Munro stretched Waverley’s lead with another deadly finish.

West Barns duly reduced the leeway but Waverley now had the upper hand and hung on well to gain victory.

The winners of the semi final will play Newtown in the final on Friday, May 16 at Greenlaw (6.45pm).
