HAGEN Steele bagged a hat-trick to set up a fine South Cup win for Lauder.

The Royal Burgh won 5-0 over Springhill in the second round, with Steele’s treble sending the Lanarkshire side - who had beaten Greenlaw last month – out of the competition.

Ex-Coldstream and Gala Fairydean Rovers frontman Steele said: “It was a brilliant performance from the team and I am delighted to get a hat-trick having not played for a month.”

In the Waddell Cup, Chirnside United thumped Coldstream Amateurs for the third time this season.

United triumphed 5-0, with Jordan Wood leading the way with two goals, and Alan Jess, Mick Pattenden and Jake Lough also netting.

Des Sutherland’s hat-trick proved the difference as Langlee Amateurs shocked their Division B hosts Gala Hotspur in the same competition.

The Ams won 4-2 at the Public Park, with Gary Cleghorn also on the scoresheet, while Duncan Kemp scored two for Spurs.

Third goals in the last six minutes saw Hawick Waverley go back to the top of Division A.

In a game switched to Volunteer Park 3G pitch, Waverley led 3-2 going into the closing stages, but a Declan Leckie goal followed by Jordan Yardley’s double saw off Newtown 6-2.

Hawick’s other goals came from Dean McColm’s double and Taylor Hope’s effort. Russell Hunter scored both of Newtown’s goals.

A second half fightback saw Hawick Legion get back on track in Division B after a surprise loss to Langholm Legion the previous week.

Hawick trailed 2-1 at home to Leithen Rovers, but ended up winning 4-2.

Callum Hope, Scott Duncan and a Declan Hogg double means Legion are second in Division B.

History was made in Division C as new side Gala Thistle recorded their first ever competitive win.

Thistle beat high flying Ancrum 3-0 at Netherdale with Jamie Scott, Brem Kirk and an own goal seeing Gala win for the first time since joining the Border Amateur League in the summer.

And Highfields United went top of Division C with a 5-3 victory over Melrose, with Niall Jones claiming a treble for the Berwick team.
