Hawick progress in Plate

Hawick travelled to Penicuik on Sunday, in the Activity Presidents Plate.

The visitors batted first on a beautiful track, but got off to the worst possible start, losing both openers and three middle-order batsmen, with nobody reaching double figures. However Ronan Alexander provided good support for Allan Moffat, who raced to 32 and the Teries continued to rebuild to post a score of 130 for eight.

The travelling side knew they would have to bowl well to reach the quarter-finals and they did just that as Penicuik were all out for 83, allowing Hawick & Wilton to progress.
