Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup – quarter finals

Beauly 2 Kyles Athletic 2, after extra time. Kyles won 3-2 on penalties

It took a penalty shoot-out to eventually separate Beauly and Kyles Athletic in their 3pm throw-up at Braeview Park.

The closest to a goal during the regulation 90 minutes came when referee Steven MacLachlan awarded Kyles a second half penalty, but Robbie Macleod’s effort went wide of target.

However Robbie MacLeod atoned for that miss four minutes into extra time when he turned home Innes MacDonald’s low cross from the left at the second attempt from the left of the ‘D’.

Disaster struck for Beauly when Angus Renwick attempted to clear the ball for a corner on 98 minutes but ended up turning it into his own net.

David MacLean gave Beauly hope on 104 minutes when he forced home Calum Morrison’s long free-hit, scoring from a tight angle at the left of the ‘D’.

Jack MacDonald made it 2-2 to the delight of the home support on 109 minutes. MacDonald beat keeper John Whyte just inside his left post with a good drive.

With no further scoring, referee Steven MacLachlan took the tie to penalties.

Kyles Athletic won the shoot-out 3-2. Robbie Macleod, Thomas Whyte and Callum Miller all converted for Kyles, with David MacLean and keeper Duncan Anderson scoring for Beauly.

Kinlochshiel 6 Oban Celtic 0

Kinlochshiel reached the Scottish semi-finals with a 6-0 victory over Oban Celtic at Rèaraig.

Kinlochshiel were still missing defensive trio Conor Cormack, Mark MacDonald and David Falconer.

Oban Celtic were without Lennon Campbell, so youngster Ewen Campbell played the 90 minutes. Ross MacMillan was one of several Celtic players playing with an injury and he only managed 15 minutes as he is clearly still bothered by a foot injury suffered against Bute.

Keith MacRae gave Kinlochshiel the lead on four minutes with a crisp shot from a tight angle and got his second on 11 minutes when he got his stick in ahead of his marker at the edge of the ‘D’, with the keeper coming off his line.

Celtic were creating chances and Daniel MacMillan went close after gathering Andy MacDonald’s ball forward and beating his marker.

Oban Celtic lost Dylan Cooke on the half-hour with the recurrence of a foot injury.

John MacRae added a third on 44 minutes when a long ball out of the home defence went over Lewis Macphee and MacRae went on to score.

Ali Nixon made it 4-0 on 53 minutes. A 15 minute spell of heavy rain made things very difficult for the players. Vision was limited and Oban Celtic keeper Allan Duncan’s stick flew out of his hands as he tried to launch a goal-hit. The pitch held up remarkably well considering the onslaught, although it was understandably slippery.

Archie MacRae’s 30-yard shot on 66 minutes deceived keeper Duncan who went for the ball with his stick above his head and Zander MacRae rounded off the scoring five minutes from time, capitalising when the ball stuck on the sticky surface as Peter Currie tried to clear.

Allan Duncan in the Oban Celtic goal made several fine saves over the course of the match.

Oban Celtic assistant manager Les Kinvig said: ‘Despite the result, it was a good experience for our young players. We knew we were playing a top premiership side and we went into the game without key players. Our mounting injuries meant Ross MacMillan could only come off the bench for 15 minutes. Andy MacDonald returned from a fortnight’s holiday but had a throat infection. Peter Currie, Dylan Cooke and Neil Carmichael are also playing with knocks. The effort and attitude shown by the players was tremendous and it is great credit to all the boys who played with injuries and we hope having no game this Saturday will help them recover.

‘We settled into the match after they scored two early goals but the third goal just before half-time was a killer blow.

‘There was a thunderstorm early in the second half. Their pitch is in good condition which is the main reason the match was able to continue. However, the rain slowed play down which probably helped us.

“We have aspirations to play at this level, but we currently have a thin squad which just isn’t ready for this standard yet but the boys are learning and we’ll be in a stronger position come the start of next season.’

Inveraray 6 Aberdour 0

It took Inveraray 40 minutes to break down Aberdour before winning 6-0 at the Winterton.

Allan Cameron broke the deadlock five minutes before the break, whilst Fraser Watt added a second on 65 minutes.

David MacAllister made it 3-0 on 70 minutes and Fraser Watt completed his hat-trick with strikes on 78 and 80 minutes.

Coll MacKay made it 6-0 with five minutes remaining.

Inveraray and Aberdour were both in last week’s Alvance British Aluminium Balliemore Cup quarter final draw.

The ties are scheduled for this Saturday, August 14.

Oban Camanachd P Glasgow Mid Argyll P

Glasgow Mid Argyll were unable to field a team for their 3pm throw-up against Oban Camanachd at Mossfield.

Oban Camanachd are in Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup quarter final action this Saturday when Lovat visit Mossfield. Throw-up is at 3pm.

Bullough Cup – second round

Glasgow Mid Argyll 3 Lochside Rovers 6

Lochside Rovers recovered from the loss of an early goal to beat Glasgow Mid Argyll’s  second team 6-3 in their noon throw-up at Peterson Park.

GMA first team manager Mark Bain featured for the seconds at half back and there was a place for Iain Luke.

With no Oban Camanachd fixture, senior manager Stephen Sloss was keen some of the club’s fringe players were given a run out for Lochside, so Gareth Evans had Ross Campbell, Blair MacFarlane, Evan MacLellan and Lewis Buchanan to call on.

Lochside started with the wind in their favour but it was GMA who took the lead through Iain Luke on seven minutes. Luke got to the ball just ahead of Scott Robertson and his 20-yard effort rose into the roof of the net.

It only took Lochside three minutes to level with a brilliantly worked goal. Lochside played with a two-two formation in attack and their full forwards combined as Lewis Buchanan turned his man on the right and his low ball to the near post was sent high into the net by Ross Campbell with a full swing.

Innes Jackson tuned home a rebound on 19 minutes to put the Oban side ahead. GMA keeper Nathan Ross saved Lewis Buchanan’s strike with his feet but as the ball spun into the air, Jackson got to it before the keeper could clear.

Former Kilmallie player Nick Lavin levelled on the half-hour from close in after Lochside failed to clear their lines. The ball broke to Lavin whose half-swing sent the ball into the top corner of the net.

The Oban side responded well and it only took them a minute to regain their lead with Ross Campbell driving an ankle-high shot into the corner of the net and an end-to-end first half finished with Lochside 3-2 ahead.

Lochside replaced Jamie Anderson with Robbie Brown with Innes Jackson going onto the wing.

The match was level again four minutes into the second half when Cailean MacInnes was at the back post to turn home a cross from the right on his back-hand. The low shot gave Lochside keeper Dougie MacDonald no chance.

Lochside regained the lead on 53 minutes and this time they stayed in front. Lewis Buchanan was afforded too much space around the penalty spot and he punished the hosts with a low finish.

A good strike from Ross Campbell a minute later gave Lochside a cushion before David Cameron turned his marker 15 yards out and ran in before beating the keeper to make it 6-3 on 73 minutes.

Cameron had been suffering from a back problem ahead of the game and was withdrawn with Daniel Pearson taking over.

Jordan Kerr and Louis MacFarlane were given a run out in attack near the end.

Jordan Kerr and Ross Campbell played well for the Oban side with Alexander MacDonald, aged 14, coming on for Calum MacMillan and playing well.

Lochside Rovers manager Gareth Evans said: ‘The scoreline might have flattered us a bit but we knew we would get a tough, physical game from GMA so there is a lot to be pleased about. The pitch was in great condition which helped the game flow and we now look forward to Kinlochshiel on Saturday.’

Lochside face the Kinlochshiel second team in the HIS Sutherland Cup third round at Mossfield this Saturday with a 12.15pm throw-up.

Artemis Macaulay Cup quarter final

Kinlochshiel 2 Lovat 3

Lovat reached the Artemis Macaulay Cup semi finals with a 3-2 victory over Kinlochshiel in a thrilling 7pm throw-up at Blairbeg on Wednesday August 4.

Kinlochshiel were missing three of their recognised back four with Mark MacDonald, Conor Cormack and David Falconer all injured. Duncan Matheson, Jonnie MacAskill and Paul MacRae joined Finlay MacRae at the back.

Lovat gave Bailey MacKay a start at wing centre after his impressive appearance from the bench against Skye the previous Saturday. Lewis Tawse pushed forward into attack with Marc MacLachlan dropping to the bench.

It took Lovat 110 minutes to break the deadlock against Skye the previous weekend but they took the lead in this encounter after just two minutes. Fraser Heath broke down the left before cutting the ball back for Callum Cruden. Cruden came away from goal before turning and sending a low shot goalwards. Kinlochshiel keeper Josh Grant saved with his feet but Lewis Tawse was quickly in to force the rebound into the net via the post.

Ali Nixon pulled Kinochshiel level on 38 minutes with a great strike. The Lovat defence didn’t deal with Keith MacRae’s free-hit from deep and Nixon’s strike from right of centre flew into the net, beating keeper Stuart MacDonald just inside his right post.

The second half was only a couple of minutes old when Greg Matheson put Lovat back in front. Matheson took his time before pushing a free-hit wide to Lorne MacKay on the left. Matheson flicked MacKay’s return into the air before volleying on his backhand across the keeper from left of centre.

Fraser Heath made it 3-1 on the hour with a precise finish from the tightest of angles. Greg Matheson sent the ball down the right and Heath got away from Finlay MacRae and with Josh Grant coming off his line, Heath’s delicate one-handed touch directed the ball low into the far corner of the net.

Heath’s effort proved decisive as Jordan Fraser cut the deficit to a single goal when he scored on 66 minutes. Duncan ‘DA’ MacRae won possession on the Kinlochshiel right before sending the ball down the line to substitute Archie MacRae. MacRae skipped by his marker before his low ball from the right was gathered by Jordan Fraser with his back to goal. Fraser turned and struck the ball low into the corner of the net, beating the keeper on his left side.

Kinlochshiel pushed hard to trigger extra time but it’s Lovat who will play Kingussie in the semi finals.

Artemis Macaulay Cup – semi final

Kingussie 4 Lovat 0

Holders Kingussie will meet Kyles Athletic in this year’s Artemis Macaulay Cup Final after Kingussie scored four times in the second half to defeat Lovat in their noon throw-up at Braeview Park.

After a scoreless first half, Roddy Young gave Kingussie the lead on 51 minutes, turning to hammer home Dylan Borthwick’s ball from the right at the second attempt.

Ruairidh Anderson made it 2-0 on 68 minutes with a bouncing shot that took a deflection on its way past a diving Stuart MacDonald in the Lovat goal.

James Falconer added a third after a great run down the right on 79 minutes, finishing from a tight angle.

James Falconer got his second and Kingussie’s fourth with three minutes remaining, gathering James Hutchison’s ball forward before finishing from a central position.

Kingussie’s Ruaridh Anderson was the sponsor’s choice as Artemis man of the match.

Skye Camanachd 3 Glenurquhart 2

Skye Camanachd were 3-2 winners in their 3pm throw-up against Glenurquhart at Pairc nan Laoch, Portree, on Saturday August 7.

Skye took the lead on nine minutes when a wonderful Jamie Gillies reverse pass from a central position sent Jordan Murchison through and he finished well.

The same two players combined once more as Murchison turned provider on 22 minutes when he played in Jamie Gillies who fired the ball high past Stuart MacKintosh from the right of the ‘D’.

Four minutes later, a superb long James Morrison ball from deep inside his own half found Iain MacLennan of the right of the ‘D’ and he swept the ball home to make it 3-0 at the break.

Glenurquhart were never out of things though and Josh MacDonald-Haig turned home a rebound off Skye keeper Ryan Morrison on 55 minutes, with Connor Golabek shooting low into the net from the left a minute later to make it 3-2.

Skye saw out the remainder of the game but the win came at a cost with Jordan Murchison picking up a hamstring injury and Ross Gordon suffering a suspected broken thumb.

Lochaber 0 Fort William 4

Fort William beat Lochaber 4-0 in their 3pm derby clash at Spean Bridge.

Referee Calum Girvan awarded Fort William a penalty on 16 minutes for hacking on Arran MacPhee as he was about to score. MacPhee took the penalty himself, beating Jack Dignan in the home goal.

Victor Smith scored a fine goal five minutes before the break, losing his marker at a corner before controlling the ball into his path and calmly rolling it past the advancing keeper to make it 2-0.

It got better for the visitors when Arran MacPhee got his second a minute before the break to make it 3-0.

Arran MacPhee completed his hat-trick on 74 minutes with his shot taking a deflection off Barry MacDonald’s stick, wrong-footing the keeper.

Fort William co-manager Victor Smith said: ‘The game was a bit flat at times but there were some good performances and I must mention Lochaber buckshee back Barry MacDonald who had a great game. This was our first league match of the season and only our third game overall so we are looking forward to getting some more matches in.

‘We have Alexander MacMillan injured, with Lewis Clark on holiday and Lachie Shaw unavailable but we’ll hopefully have a couple of them back for the trip to Glenurquhart on Saturday.’

It was a difficult week for Lochaber as they were also forced to forfeit their Alvance British Aluminium Balliemore Cup first round tie against Inverness for fielding an ineligible player. Inverness went into the quarter final draw where they will host Beauly. The other ties see Skye welcome Aberdour, Ballachulish at home to Inveraray and Bute having home advantage against Strathglass. The ties are scheduled for this Saturday.
