GIVING their best performance of the season Hawick emerged worthy victors of this battle of the Legions.

Scott Duncan opened Hawick’s scoring account in slotting away a Thomas Scott cross.

Langholm hit back to equalise but Hawick regained their lead before the interval through a well-worked goal when Jordan Caldwell found the net with a header following good play by Callum Hope and Gary Moffat.

In the second period, Hope added to Hawick’s tally with a penalty which went in off the post.

Minutes later Hope put Langholm into further arrears in netting a second penalty.

Hawick kept their foot on the gas and Duncan made it a nap hand for the visitors when cutting inside to drive a shot past the Langholm keeper.

In the closing stages Langholm reduced the leeway.
