Last-gasp goal puts United on top

Ancrum 1

Hawick United 2 

A goal in the closing seconds of the match gained United full points in this top of the table clash.

In a dourly fought encounter that brought about few scoring chances, United took the lead midway through the first half. New signing Hugo Santos sprayed a pass to the feet of Ross Scott who drilled an angled shot out of the reach of the Ancrum keeper.

A minute into the second period Ancrum equalised. United failed to clear a long throw and the ball bounced twice before being rattled by Daniel Gillie.

With neither side doing much in front of goal a draw looked on the cards but with seconds of the game remaining United changed this. Kevin Strathdee had a shot parried by the home number one and Ross Scott tucked away the loose ball for a last-gasp winner.
