HUGHES DOUBLE SETS DUNS ON COURSE

Newly promoted Dundela began life in the Bluefin Sport Championship on a winning note with a 3-2 defeat of Dergview at Wilgar Park.

Jordan Hughes, leading scorer last season, picked up where he left off with the opener after 17 minutes.

It was a lead the Duns held until ten minutes until the second half when Paul Smith levelled for Dergview, only for Dundela to edge back in front through Hughes' second of the game ten minutes later with Daniel Burns adding a third soon after.

Substitute Dale Maxwell reduced the deficit with ten minutes to go but it was too late to spark a revival for the visitors.
