Strathdee to the four for United

Eyemouth Amateurs 2

Hawick United 7

TURNING on the style throughout, United took an early lead when Michael Moir netted following a long Kevin Strathdee throw-in.

Minutes later, Ryan Brady put United further ahead after the Eyemouth defence failed to clear another Strathdee throw-in.

The Fishermen pulled a goal back before the break, but United were very much in the driving seat and in the first minute of the second half they struck again when Strathdee put away a pass from Colin Turnbull to make it 3-1.

Strathdee followed this up with another shortly afterwards – thanks to Kevin Paterson and Palo Mendez doing the spadework.

Following a strike from Mendez, Strathdee put the Amateurs into further arrears.

Eyemouth hit back to reduce the leeway, but United had the last laugh when Strathdee grabbed his fourth goal of the match, which was also his 35th of the season.
