Morrison’s Academy 17
Hawick High School 41
THREE Langholm lads helped Hawick High School to their first win of the boys’ schools cup final when they beat Morrison’s Academy to take the U16 bowl final.
Hughie Donaldson, Ben Jardine and Jack Henderson were joined by Corey Tait, grandson of Avril and Robert Grieve of Langholm, who
attends Hawick High School. He was named man of the match.
Henderson scored a try after fullback Blair Knight side-stepped several defenders to work his way up the park.
The ball was recycled quickly to find second row Henderson who ran in down the blind side for his try which was converted by Owain Gray.
At half time the score was Morrison’s Academy 7 Hawick High School 24.
Morrison’s Academy started the second half knowing that they had a big second half ahead of them if they were to secure the win.
Hawick were awarded a
penalty on the halfway line and stand-off Gray opted to kick for touch but it didn’t quite make it.
Replacement player Sean McMichan got under it and
secured it for Hawick. They were able to recycle it quickly which allowed Charlie Comley to go in under the posts. Ben Jardine converted.
