Teries ease to comfortable second victory

HAWICK entertained Clackmannan County 2nd XI in their third match of their East League Division 7 campaign.

The Teries bowled first and got off to a great start with Pierce Solley taking his first wicket before there was a run on the board.

Solley then took his second wicket to reduce the visitors to 13 for two.

Cameos from Alangir and Bryant-Nicholls got Clackmannan to a respectable position at 49 for 4.

However, in a collapse in which Craig MacDougall, Gary and Ronan Alexander picked up two wickets each, and Bruce and Phil MacTaggart took five catches between them, Clackmannan were bowled out for 57.

Euan Hair and Gary Alexander opened the batting and got off to a steady start before the latter fell for 10.

Hair was then run out for 18, before Solley and Phil MacTaggart knocked off the runs required with no real scares as Hawick picked up their second successive home victory.
