Share of the spoils


Melrose 3 Hawick Legion Rovers 3


Rovers made the early running and broke the deadlock when Andrew McFarlane found the net with a shot from the edge of the box.

The visitors kept up the good work and on collecting a Chay Caldwell pass, McFarlane rounded the Melrose keeper to stick away a second.

After Melrose had grabbed a goal towards the break, Andrew McFarlane completed his hat trick early in the second period from a John Shankie pass.

It was looking good for Rovers at this stage.

Melrose came rallying back to reduce the leeway though and minutes from time got an equaliser.
