Legion’s Gellaitry snatches leveller

Hawick Legion2

Coldstream Ams2


WITH a swirling wind at their backs, Coldstream broke the deadlock in the 12th minute with Darren Simpson slotting a shot into the net.

The Streamers kept their foot on the gas and with 27 minutes gone stretched their lead, Steven Waugh producing a spot-on finish after being fed by Michael Evans’ pass.

Coldstream were well in control, but in the second period the pattern of the game began to change completely.

Legion received another blow in having Richard Snowdon sent off for a second bookable offence.

Aided by the breeze, Legion began to make their mark and in the 62nd minute reduced the leeway when Scott Duncan tucked a shot out of the reach of Coldstream keeper Ricky Fletcher. In the 86th minute Chris Brown put Legion in the right direction by heading home a Liam Gellaitry cross for the equaliser.
