Selkirk 'A' 59, Berwick 2nds 7

Selkirk 'A' players end league campaign on a winning note

GOOD teamwork ensured a convincing victory for Selkirk 'A' in their final Border Farm Supplies Border Championship fixture at Philiphaugh on Saturday. The Souters ran out comfortable 59-7 winners over Berwick 2nds, although the visitors deserve credit for battling gamely to the final whistle.

Once again teenage fly-half Darren Scott turned in a five-star display, controlling the match throughout, and profiting from some excellent service from half-back partner Fraser Jack.

A special mention must also go to the young back row of Callum Johnston, Scott McDonald and Matthew Robertson, who were always first to the breakdown and tackled like demons for the full 80 minutes.

Selkirk were ahead by 33-7 at halftime, and went on to notch a total of nine touchdowns.

Tries came from Alistair Lyall (3). Callum Johnston (2), Michael Jaffray (2) and Darren Clapperton (2). Darren Scott kicked seven conversions.
