Hawick under-15s were defeated by Gala in a thrilling match that went right to the death.
The young Teries batted first and lost opener Ryan Johnston to Robbie Irvine early doors.
However, Morgan Tait and Ronan Alexander got the home side back on track and both retired after reaching 30 as the home side made 90 for one.
The visitors got off to a flying start with Jack Halls retiring on 30. Gareth Welsh took the wicket of Irvine, which started a collapse as five further wickets fell, but Thomas Godfrey-Faussett saw Gala home with a classy unbeaten 25.
