Milntown men edge victory

Langholm14

Hawick Quins7

IT WAS a dour battle for supremacy in the soft underfoot conditions at Milntown and it was Langholm who eventually edged the win.

Quins made a superb start when, with only two minutes played, Adam Hall outpaced the defence to dash 60m for a try which Scott Peffers converted.

Langholm had threatened on a few occasions, and after 52 minutes, Andrew Bell went over.

With eight minutes left, the Langholm forwards piled in with Steven Nicol getting the try.

Niall Cubbon converted both.
