Berwick Rangers 2-1 Montrose

Blair Henderson's double gave Berwick Rangers victory over Montrose on the opening day of Scottish League Two.

Berwick moved into the lead when Henderson latched on to Finn Graham's cross and coolly converted past Ross Salmon.

But Montrose were level by the 20th minute, Paul Watson scoring a penalty after Scott Johnston had been fouled.

Henderson headed the hosts back into the lead in the second half, meeting Ewan McNeil's cross.
