Hawick Legion 5 Chirnside 2


Legion drew first blood in this Border Cup clash when Scott Duncan scored from close range following a corner kick.

Liam Lavery then put Legion further ahead after being fed by a David Fraser pass.

Lavery slotted away a third before the interval.

With a minute of the second period gone, Chirnside opened their account with a goal from a free kick. The Berwickshire side then put themselves back in the picture by snatching a second.

Legion however, began to regroup and Callum Hope duly struck away a fourth.

Substitute Simon Philbin then got his name on the score sheet in beating the Chirnside keeper with a chipped shot from 25 yards.
