Duns 4-1 Heriot Watt University

Now into the best start to a season in 43 years Duns turned on the style in the second half at NHP on Saturday recording a first ever home league victory over the Watt. However those  present had to suffer a turgid first half  where the Dingers again went behind early on only to huff and puff to go in at the interval happy to see the end of these particular forty five minutes.

After coach Gracey took the red and black paint of the home dressing room wall the home side reemerged as a different  outfit doing what we know they are capable of. Referee Hanlon dismissed two of the visiting students which further allowed Duns to express themselves and go on to dominate the half. Goals from Waddell, Robinson and a Shennan spot kick (pictured) plus a spectacular own goal wrote the score line.

Line up;  Smith,  Ainslie, Walker (Weatherburn) McHoul, Windram, J Brydon, Waddell, Tait (McGregor) Robinson, Shennan, Chisholm.

Result: Duns 4 Heriot-Watt Uni 1
The Dingers went a goal down after only 6 minutes when a stray pass was pounced upon on the half-way line and they never created an opening until they levelled matters after 33 minutes, Gary Waddell beating the offside trap to fire home from 12 yards. Two minutes later home ‘keeper Philip Smith came to the rescue with a great save low to his right, the loose ball was fired into the net but ruled offside.
With 50 minutes on the clock Dez Chisholm was brought down when he was about to score, the outcome being a red card for the defender and a goal from the penalty spot by Stevie Shennan. With 54 minutes gone Michael Robinson chipped the ‘keeper to put the home side 3-1 up then the visitors were reduced to nine men when a second yellow card was shown for a late tackle. On 77 minutes Mark Weatherburn hit a low cross into the box which was turned in for an own goal to complete the scoring
