A depleted South Lochaber squad were disappointed not to pick up any points on Saturday after a surprise defeat to Strathclyde University in soaking conditions at Kinlochleven.

The early exchanges saw SLT carve out several opportunities only to find the Strathclyde keeper in incredible form. Easily the man of the match, the young keeper stopped everything that the Jags could throw at him.

Despite the early barrage on the university goal, Strathclyde opened the scoring against the run of play after the forwards pounced on a slack pass out from the home keeper.

They made it two shortly before half time when another loose pass, this time from midfield, was picked off and resulted in another goal to put the visitors two up at the break.

A change to 4-4-2 early in the second half seemed to spur the Jags on, but they toiled against a fit and youthful Strathclyde side. Despite some good play the Jags goal came from Andrew McLean, who headed in from a corner with 15 minutes remaining.

SLT pushed on to the end keeping most of the play in the opposing team’s half, but sadly the elusive equaliser was not to be.

Next week the Jags take on Boswell at Rosshall Academy where they hope to get their season back on track.
