Legion in control

Jed Legion 3

Hawick United 1


SEEKING revenge for a recent midweek defeat at the hands of United, Legion netted the only goal of a dourly-fought first half through a Terry Marshall strike.

The second period conjured up little excitement until the match finished in dramatic fashion.

With minutes remaining, Kevin Strathdee put Hawick on level terms, making no mistake with a penalty after having been brought down by Marshall, who was red-carded.

Ten-man Jed responded by regaining their lead when a shot was deflected into the net by United’s Ross Scott.

Just on time, Legion put the issue beyond doubt, grabbing a third through Richard Hanlon.
