Hawick & Wilton beat Holy Cross III by 195 runs
EAST LEAGUE DIVISION EIGHT
BATTING first, Hawick managed to score 220 runs, which remarkably was the first time they have scored more than 200 runs this season.
This was thanks to key knock from openers Gary Alexander and young Declan Solley. Alexander scored 52 and Solley 41.
This gave the Hawick innings a good platform for a big score.
The openers were ably supported throughout the innings by Allan Moffat and Stuart Hair.
In response, Holy Cross had no answer to the tight bowling of Stuart Hair and Neil Storey, who took a few wickets each. Others amongst the wickets for Hawick were Craig MacDougall, Ronan Alexander and Doug Bryant, as Holy Cross were all out for 25.
This was a good all-round performance from the Teries who were missing a few players.
Next up is a tough away trip to Largo and Hawick still require two wins to win the league and gain promotion.
