Muckle loss

Berwick 41

Langholm 11

RBS EAST DIVISION ONE

BERWICK proved the better of the two teams who find themselves already fighting relegation.

Gareth Hill and Niall Cubbon exchanged penalties before Dan Law squeezed through for the opening try, Hill slotting the conversion, as well as another two penalties. Further tries came from James Patterson and Lee Douglas, with Hill adding the extras.

In reply, Cubbon managed another three-pointer. Into the second half, another Hill penalty was followed by Langholm scoring what was to be their last points from a try by winger Gavin Campbell.

But further touchdowns from the Blacks’ Paul Pringle and Michael Brennan saw the home side win fairly easily.
