Two other A league games went ahead at the weekend, with Langlee Amateurs drawing 2-2 away to Langholm Legion, with Josh Loftus and Des Sutherland netting for the visitors, and Newtown beating Greenlaw 3-0 at home, thanks to two goals from Joe Tait and another from Darren Blacklock.
Stow recorded a 3-0 B league home victory against Earlston Rhymers, their scorers being Jordan and Macauley Steele and David Brown, and that division’s only other game at the weekend was a 5-2 home defeat for Selkirk Victoria against Coldstream Amateurs, Ryan Clapperton and Darren Munro being on target for Selkirk.
The two other C league fixtures played were a 7-2 defeat for Lauder away to Eyemouth United and a 2-0 home loss for Gala Fairydean Rovers Amateurs versus Berwick’s Highfields United.
Their win at the weekend puts Duns 14 points clear of Langholm Legion at the top of the A league, with a 100% haul of 30 points from 10 games. Third-placed Greenlaw are level with Langholm on 16 points but have played three more games.
B league table-toppers Tweedmouth Amateurs’ tally of 30 points from 10 games matches that of Duns, but they’re only nine points ahead of second-placed Stow and have played two games more.
Hawick Colts are also on maximum points in the C league, with 21 from seven games, one point ahead of second-placed Highfields United but with four games in hand.
