A tremendous second half performance from the Hi Hi’s saw them put Coldstream to the sword at Millfield last week. The borders side arrived at Millfield unbeaten in seven and home manager Scott Bonar knew that his threadbare squad would face a stiff test. That was the case in a cagey first half that saw Haddington dominate possession but chances were few and far between. The deadlock was broken in the 41st minute when Shaun Hill picked up a loose ball 25 yards out and the ball was destined for the net as soon as he hit it. Guy McGarry missed an early chance after the break but a goal was only delayed. Gordon Harris looped a header over the Coldstream goalkeeper when he connected with Auriemma’s free kick. The Hi Hi’s were flying now and Guy McGarry added a third when he collected a fine pass from Harris and cut in from the right wing and scored with a low shot. The Coldstream goal led a charmed life as both posts came to their rescue but Alassan Jones capped a good second half performance when broke through on the left and beat ‘keeper Stewart all ends up from a tight angle. Jones tormented the visitors with some incisive runs and he earned his side a penalty when he was hauled down in the box. Hill made no mistake from the spot and soon completed his hat trick with a well placed effort from wide on the left. Once again the local support was out in force and a great crowd just short of 300 saw Haddington extend their unbeaten run in league matches to 25.
