Two points lost for tireless Tweedsiders

Eyemouth 3

Kelso United 3


OVERALL, the Tweedsiders were the better team throughout, but the home side managed to claw back from being 3-1 down, writes George Riley.

The away side showed their intent early and were rewarded after 17 minutes. Eyemouth full back Alan Spiers fouled Liam Wallace on the edge of the box and from the resultant free kick Jordan Lauder swung the ball into a crowded penalty area where Gary McNulty headed into the net.

The hosts got on equal terms just before the half-hour mark with a Connor Lough goal.

Just after the break, a Des Burnett shot hit the post and Lauder followed up to sweep the ball into the net and put Kelso ahead. The lead was ­increased in the 68th minute when Burnett finished off a great move.

The two-goal advantage only lasted a minute, however. A speculative shot from Steven Shennan looped over Johnny Cowe and into the net.

Eyemouth got their equaliser with three minutes remaining through a Spiers header.

Kelso manager Prof Blaikie said: “We had most of the game and should have finished it off. Eyemouth seemed to get the break of the ball. It is disappointing as this was two points lost.”

Kelso United: J. Cowe, J. McCutcheon, G. Mabon, D. McNulty, G. McNulty, S. Tait, C. McClure (G. Porter), G. Gillie ( Bowie), D. Burnett, L. Wallace, J. Lauder.
