United dispatch Spurs

Hawick United 4 Gala Hotspur 2


A KEVIN Strathdee double helped Hawick United to a deserved Waddell Cup win.

Ross Scott put United on the victory trail with a well taken opener in blasting home a shot after cutting in from the flank.

United soon went further ahead with Kevin Strathdee producing the scoring touch in chipping the ball over the head of the Hotspur keeper Glen Murray from a Kevin Patterson cross.

The home men kept up the good work and Kevin Strathdee stroked a short corner kick to David Strathdee who floated over a cross that was headed in by Sean Owens.

Hotspur then reduced the leeway through a Michael Blackwood penalty but United hit back to net again through Kevin Strathdee. Gala had the last say by notching a late second through Callum Gass.
