Rovers can’t keep up with Lauder express

Hawick Legion Rovers 2

Lauder 5


LAUDER drew first blood when cashing in on some slack Rovers marking.

The young Hawick side came rallying back, though, and after rounding the Lauder keeper, John Shankie slotted away an equaliser.

Rovers’ joy was short-lived as within a minute Lauder went ahead for a second time.

The remainder of the first half failed to conjure up any further goals, but following the changeover Lauder added to their tally following a move down the left.

Rovers reduced the leeway through another Shankie counter, but Lauder restored their two-goal lead almost immediately before duly going on to net again.
