Hope and glory in Waddell Cup tie

Hawick Waverley2

Linton Hotspur1

WAVERLEY began this Waddell Cup tie in fine style by sailing into the lead with just three minutes gone.

Liam Lavery broke down the right before whipping over a cross which Taylor Hope slotted past the Hotspur keeper.

With a swirling wind causing both teams problems, the remainder of the first half brought about few scoring chances.

After the break, Hotspur equalised through Graeme Muirhead before Luke Cooper challenged the Linton keeper for the ball which bounced to Hope, who shot home the winner.
