Snowdon’s summit else at either end

Hawick Legion Rovers 2

Winton 5


ROVERS broke the deadlock midway through the first half when Richard Snowdon beat the Winton keeper with an excellent diving header on meeting a Brian Stavert free kick.

Winton equalised before the interval following a good move down the right and early in the second half struck again to take the lead.

Just after this, Rovers lost goalkeeper Ally Willison through a shoulder injury, with Snowdon taking over between the posts.

After the visitors had netted again, Snowdon showed he was a more than capable deputy in pulling off two top-notch saves.

A much more experienced Winton outfit were in the driving seat and duly rattled away two more goals.

Towards the finish Rovers reduced the leeway through a John Shankie counter.
