Hawick & Wilton 125 all out

Leith FAB 92 all out

 

Hawick & Wilton win by 33 runs

 

 

An impressive bowling and fielding performance got Hawick their first victory of the season on Saturday at the third attempt.

 

Gareth Welsh was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets whilst Stuart Hair top scored with the bat, scoring 30 runs.

 

Skipper Ronan Alexander won the toss and chose to bat, with him and Gary Alexander making a solid start, something Hawick haven’t done in their previous games.

 

However, their hard work was soon undone with the score on 26 when Ronan and then Euan Hair fell in quick succession.

 

Stuart Hair built a steady partnership with Alexander senior to get Hawick back on track. Alexander was soon caught by the wicketkeeper after making 27 before Hair was run out for 30.

 

Phil Mactaggart and Evan Alexander both made good starts, getting 12, but couldn’t kick on and make a big score.

 

Bruce Mactaggart then made 10, but Hawick were all out for 125. It was a disappointing total, and should have been so much more, but the Teries gave away some cheap wickets, and had a tough second half ahead of them.

 

However, Hawick’s opening bowlers Lee Stewart and Stuart Hair came flying out the blocks and took the early wickets that were vital. 

 

With Leith on 36 for 3, a wicket each for Gary and Ronan Alexander made the score 52 for 5 to put Hawick in pole position.

 

But a counter attacking partnership from Poojari and Hasan took the score to 90 for 5 meaning Hawick had plenty work to do.

 

However, Ronan Alexander bowled Poojari for 20 and then Welsh wrapped the game up with an excellent spell of bowling that dismissed four of the visitors batsmen to give the Teries an important victory.
