Chirnside travelled to Hawick on Saturday to take on the newly promoted Second Division Champions.


Both teams going into the game were unbeaten in their previous three league fixtures. The game kicked off in wet and blustery conditions with Utd kicking against the wind in the first half.


The home side started the better of the two teams and looked sharp up front. However after 20 minutes it was the visitors that took the lead when Morrison's cross was diverted into his own net by the Hawick Centre Half.


Number two arrived five minutes later when Young's long throw was flicked on by Turner and Lauder guided his header past the Utd keeper.


The second half kicked off with the away team again looking to add to their lead. Lauder got his second and Chirnside's third to take his tally to five in two games. Turner then scored the best goal of the game when he chested Young's through ball and volleyed past the Hawick keeper.


Hawick were then awarded a penalty after Morrison was adjudged to have handled a cross from the left but Black in the Chirnside goal made a good save to his left to deny the Defender taking the kick.


Substitute Armstrong then got the visitors fifth when the home Goalkeeper misjudged a back pass and the Striker was left with an empty goal to stroke the ball home.


Chirnside then went to sleep in the last five minutes and Hawick scored two goals to give the scoreline a more respectable look.
