Hawick Legion Rovers stopped short of equaliser

Chirnside United Colts 3

Hawick Legion Rovers 2


ROVERS were unfortunate not to get at least a share of the spoils in this keenly-fought tussle.

Chirnside started brightly by netting the two opening goals, while at the other end Luke Cooper came close to reducing the leeway when hitting the underside of the bar with a free kick.

After the Colts had rattled home a third early in the second half, Cooper reduced the leeway.

Then Rovers soon did the business again via a Craig Matear strike.

From here on, the Teries pounded the Chirnside goal in relentless fashion, but, try as they might, they could not add to their tally.
