STRUGGLING -- Holbrook St Michaels.

Tweedmouth started the brighter of the two teams creating a few chances early on, playing some good football. Herriot Watt then came into the game a lot more as the half went on and started to control the game.

They took the lead striking from close range after Rangers couldn’t clear the ball. They then nearly made it two but for a good low save from Patterson.

This gave Tweedmouth a shake and they equalised shortly after from a good finish by man of the match Ross Moore.

The home side played some nice football in the second half, especially on the counter attack. There were chances at both ends. Coyle went close on a couple of occasions.
