Tweedmouth were punished for giving away possession and missing chances at the Five Arches

The home were looking to pick up from recent performances, however the away side made the brighter start.

Melrose’s energy forced Tweedmouth to give away cheap possession and it was then no surprise when the away team went in front.

The lead was quickly doubled after some sloppy play from the home team.

Half time couldn’t come quick enough and a number of changes were made in an attempt get Tweedmouth back into the game.

They did start the half the better team, but poor finishing was to be their downfall as the away team added a two more goals to put the match beyond Tweedmouth’s reach.

Patterson scored a late consolation with the final kick of the match.
