Report

 

Chirnside made the short journey to Duns on Saturday to take on their local rivals in the Second Round of the Beveridge Cup.

 

The away side kept the same team that defeated Newtown for the fourth time last weekend with Stuart serving the last game of his suspension. It was the home team who had the first chance of the game when Baxter's dangerous cross from the right was well blocked by Luggett with Burns in close pursuit.

 

Chirnside though took the lead 10 minutes in when Young's corner on the right was only half cleared and Shennans first time shot hit the back of the net.

 

The away team were now in control of the game and Ponder and Stobie both had chances that just missed the target. The second however wasn't that long in coming and Turner swivelled neatly on the six yard box to put a rare right foot shot into the bottom corner of the net.

 

Duns never gave in and were rewarded with a goal on the half hour mark when Burns caught Luggett flat footed to put his left foot shot into the top left hand corner.

 

With half time looming Chirnside went on one final attack and were awarded a penalty after Anderson's two footed lunge on Ponder was penalised by the referee. Turner stepped and cooly slotted home to score his second of the game.

 

The second half kicked off with the away team playing up the slope and they almost immediately scored the killer fourth goal but Young's shot was just off target. Not much football was played in the second half as the game petered out into a rather dour affair. The only action of note was the completion of Turner's hat-trick after a pin point cross from Lauder on the left. The big hitman rose the highest in the box and left the keeper with no chance.

 

Chirnside now travel away to Hawick to play Waverley in the semi-final. It seems the last time the papermakers had a home cup tie Snickers were called Marathons and Jase Luggett had hair !
