Hearts draw with rivals Lewis Utd


Hearts had Lewis United as visitors in a Division 1 East League match on a lovely day at Raemoss Park.

Lewis had slight wind advantage in the first half and started slightly better when a long throw from Cheyne caused a bit of hassle in the Hearts defence and Pirie couldn’t get his shot away.

Davidson whipped in a good free kick but nobody could get on the end of it and it went narrowly past.

Lewis United took the lead when the ball found Keiran Lawrence whose mishit shot found its way into the net through a ruck of players to put the visitors one goal ahead.

Hearts should have equalised when a Davidson corner gave Kris Keith a free header but he headed over from a good position.

Hearts equalised when a Walker through ball found Dave Ballard in on goals.

Just on half time Lewis were awarded a penalty for a push on Wyness and the striker shot home to make it 2-1.

Hearts had slight wind advantage and took the game to Lewis and Ballard was unlucky when he tried a shot but the ball wouldn’t come down and he shot high over.

Davidson was put through and his shot went just past the post and Hearts kept up the pressure and got their reward when Ballard was pushed in the box.

Richie Ligerwood shot home the penalty to make it 2-2.

Norris then played the ball across goals but Ballard couldn’t connect and the chance was gone.

Hearts kept up the pressure to the end but couldn’t get the breakthrough.

Hearts have signed Lithuanian under 20 international Vilius Lapiaka and his debut is waited with great anticipation.

Hearts’ next game is away to Glentanar, kick off 2pm.
