Share this article

Hawick got off to a great start in defence of the Activity Presidents Plate by defeating Penicuik by nine wickets on Sunday.

A good bowling performance, led by Ryan Johnston, saw Penicuik all out for 96, with Hawick only conceding four extras.

In reply, Hawick openers Declan Solley and Ronan Alexander got off to a steady start before the latter was joined by Allan Moffat to accelerate towards the finish line with a 50 partnership off just 44 deliveries.

The visitors did all they could to get back into the game, but four maximums from Moffat and a reverse sweep from Alexander saw the Teries comfortably into the next round.
