The home side secured their passage into the next round of the South Cup thanks, in the main, to a first-half hat-trick from star of the show Nathan Gillie to take the home side into a 3-0 lead.

Duns pulled a goal back just before the break when Jamie Lackenby went through unopposed to slot past Sean Jack in the Legion goal.

Jed hit the woodwork twice before extending their lead through Sean Wood after Gillie had robbed a Duns defender on the edge of his own box before unselfishly squaring to his strike partner for an easy tap-in.

Both teams had further opportunities to score before Lackenby scored his second of the afternoon from the spot in the final minute of the game.
