Hawick Waverley4

A DARREN MUNRO hat-trick helped guide Waverley to victory in this Border Amateur League Division A top-of-the-table clash.

Munro grabbed the first of his threesome in the fifth minute, curling his shot into the net.

With both sides impressing, it was nip and tuck for the remainder of the first half, but there was no addition to the scoring until Waverley struck seconds from the break. Liam Lavery fed Munro with a pass and the ace striker, who has been hitting the net regularly throughout the season, fired home.

Early in the second half, Waverley went further ahead when Taylor Hope cut inside and slotted a shot into the net.

Minutes later, Munro completed the scoring, as well as his hat-trick, in polishing off a move sparked off by Hope.

The victory leaves the Hawick side four points clear at the top of the table.
