HAWICK won a thrilling Border Under-13 Knockout Cup final by just six runs at Galashiels.
The young Teries notched 61 for two from their 20 overs against Biggar/Peebles, with an unbeaten 20 from Murray Renwick and an 18 not out by Evan Alexander.
In reply, Biggar/Peebles were always in the hunt with Henry Adams at the crease, but once he retired on 30 not out, the rest of the team struggled and were bowled out for 55.
Mully Bannerman finished off the tail to finish with fine figures of 4 for 7.
In the Plate competition, finalists Gala, who had defeated St Boswells in the semis, were left with no opponents on finals day.
As Borders Women were also left with no opposition, both played in a cross-competition challenge match.
The women batted first and good contributions throughout the innings, coupled with 22 extras, saw the women reach a highly competitive total of 82.
In reply, Gala struggled from the start against a more consistent attack, with only Robbie Irvine getting into double figures, as the Gala youngsters were bowled out for 50.
Meanwhile, Kelso claimed the Border Reserve League title, having won eight of their nine games.
