Aaron Hope scored a hat-trick to eard Tweedmouth all three points at Lauder thanks to a workmanlike performance.

Tweedmouth returned to league action after a weeks break following the previous week’s postponement,

Tweedmouth started the game in fine fashion, taking the game to the home side and they immediately got there reward when Hope cut inside and calmly tucked his shot away from a tight angle.

The visitors seemed to then take their foot of the gas, allowing the home side to equalise.

But the away side responded by upping their game. A through ball from Sean Philips found Hope to put Tweedmouth back in front.

Lauder created some fine chances only for goalkeeper Graeme Cain to pull of a number of fine saves to keep his marginally in front.

Tweedmouth upped their game and began to dominate.

After fine run down the left by Nicky Clark, he crossed for Hope to complete his hat-trick and give them a two-goal cushion going into the break.

Into the second half and the game effectively over as a contest, and with Lauder playing a high defensive line without putting the away side under any kind of real pressure, neither team were able to create many goal scoring opportunities.

Tweedmouth continued to stay solid as a team and a workmanlike second half performance gave them all the points.
