Stow fight on to the end to win the day

Hawick Waverley2


Waverley drew first blood by sailing into the lead in the ninth minute, when new signing Jason Inglis, formerly of Selkirk and Gala Fairydean Rovers, rattled home a shot.

Just past the half-hour mark, Jordan Yardley put the home side further ahead.

A good Stow side took all of this in their stride though, and reduced the leeway before the interval, when Hagan Steele made no mistake with a penalty after Jamie Richardson had tripped an attacker in the box.

Boosted by this, Stow began to make their mark and Steele slotted home the equaliser.

From a side that could well have been dead and buried, Stow were alive and kicking and, with two minutes remaining, grabbed what was to be a winning goal.

Waverley keeper Ali Willison parried and the ball broke loose to an eager Stow man, who made no mistake on shooting home.
