United hit by late penalty

Border Amateur ‘B’ Division

Tweedmouth Amateurs3

Hawick United3

UNITED set the early pace and opened the scoring with a well worked goal.

Ross Scott headed a long ball from new face Rio Rashrash into the path of Kevin Strathdee and the United striker produced the perfect finish in lobbing a shot over the head of the Amateurs keeper.

The Tangerines kept up the good work and increased their advantage when Aiden Reilly found the net with a cross-cum-shot.

United were in the driving seat but in the second half the homesters reduced the deficit with a free-kick.

Back came the visitors though and following slick play by David Strathdee and Jamie Richardson, Kevin Strathdee rounded the keeper before firing home.

In the closing stages Tweedmouth pulled a goal back, but worse was to come as, deep into injury time, they equalised from the penalty spot.
