Highland Win Promotion As Champions

2 weeks ago By Peter Martin

It was a nervy start, but Highland quickly settled for a runaway 71-10 win over St Boswells.

It was St Boswells who won the opening encounters with several penalties given away by each side. The visitors slotted one to get on the score-board first to lead 0-3.

Highland were not daunted and gradually got into their stride with six first-half tries to lead 38-3 at the break and secure promotion. In the second-half were still in a scoring mood, making the use of the wind and containing a St Boswells side who looked like putting more scores on the board than the single converted try.

The final 71-10 score means Highland go up to BT National League Division 2 as champions along with Glasgow Accies as runners-up.
