Hawick 195 for 8

Haddington 77 all out

 

Hawick win by 118 runs

 

Hawick got back to their best with a convincing win against Haddington on Saturday.

 

Impressive batting displays from Phil Mactaggart, Evan Alexander and Bruce Mactaggart got Hawick to their highest total of the season so far, and a ruthless bowling performance sealed the victory.

 

The visitors made the Teries bat first and a change of tactics which saw Bruce Mactaggart open the batting paid off as he raced to 31 to get the hosts off to a solid start.

 

After losing Christo Beukes (5), Gary Alexander (11) and Stuart Hair (10), Haddington had Hawick pegged back at 64 for 4. 

 

However, Phil Mactaggart continued from where he left off on Thursday and Ronan Alexander provided a bit of resistance to take the score up to 95 before he was bowled. 

 

Euan Hair struck two quick boundaries before being caught for 9. 

 

Evan Alexander built a solid partnership with Mactaggart and the pair looked in dangerous form before the latter was caught for 44.

 

Wicketkeeper Alexander was then out for 36 as Hawick closed in on 200.

 

Rory Anderson played a fine cameo of 21 from 21 balls and Lee Stewart’s late boundary took the score up to 195.

 

With the visitors only having 9 players, the Teries knew victory was there for the taking especially after their batting performance.

 

Stuart Hair found the early breakthrough as the batsmen edged the ball through to Alexander. 

 

After a Haddington counter attack that took the score to 41, Stewart bowled four overs in a row without conceding a run and took two wickets in the process to put Hawick in pole position.

 

Gareth Welsh continued his excellent bowling form with another well deserved wicket before Ronan Alexander added a brace to take his tally to 11 for the season.

 

The Teries were again brilliant in the field, with Phil Mactaggart taking an excellent catch, and Euan Hair thought he took a great catch but parried the ball which fell into the path of Stewart who held on.

 

With victory in sight, Euan Hair was given a rare bowling opportunity, and wasted not time getting the game finished. With his first ball, the batsman edged it to Evan Alexander who fumbled it, but his party went straight to Gary Alexander who held on to take the catch and complete an excellent win.
