Berwick went on a 13-try demolition job at Milntown in the RBS Border Shield and are clear at the top of the table with one match remaining, writes John Smith.

Langholm had no answer to the power and pace of their visitors.

Niall Cubbon put the hosts ahead with a penalty goal after six minutes, but thereafter Berwick dominated. The half-time score was 3-36.

Langholm never gave up, and experienced players such as Steven Nicol, Niall Cubbon and Alasdair Cavers caught the eye with the occasion surge, but were mainly confined to defensive roles.

For Berwick, Alistair Grieve scored four tries and Gareth Hill notched a try and nine conversions. Other touchdowns came from Tom Riddell (2), Alex Frost, Jamie Patterson, Gareth Black, Jack Webster, Jamie Young and Tom Jackson.

Berwick head to Caithness for the Shield semi-final on March 29.
