Hawick Legion Rovers 2-2 Eyemouth Ams


Eyemouth Amateurs took a point from a 2-2 draw away to Hawick Legion Rovers on Saturday.

But the Fishermen left the more disappointed side, knowing that they had let a two-goal lead slip through their fingers.

A downpour just before kick off made the pitch almost unplayable but that didn’t stop Eyemouth taking an early lead after great work from Steven Dougall down the right side which ended in a free kick. Andrew Sword took the free kick and Gordon McInnes headed in at the near post.

Hawick pressed well but struggled to find a equaliser against an inform Adam Stobbart.

Eyemouth doubled their lead 10 minutes before half time when Mark Brown broke down the wing to put in a great ball in for Sword, who chested it down and finshed comfortably.

The pitch started to cause problems for both sides in the second half and Hawick converted a penalty after Gary Stobbart fouled inside the box.

Hawick dominated the second half and with 20 minutes to go levelled the game after Eyemouth struggled to clear their lines. Eyemouth nearly won the game late on after a few chances in stoppage time were missed.
