The Artemis Macaulay Cup quarter-finalists are known following high-scoring first round ties on Saturday April 30.

South shinty
Artemis Macaulay Cup – first round

Oban Camanachd 4 Glasgow Mid Argyll 1

Oban Camanachd were comfortable 4-1 winners against Glasgow Mid Argyll (GMA) in their 3pm throw-up at a rainy Mossfield.

Malcolm Clark and Evan MacLellan returned from injury to the Oban Camanachd starting line-up but defender Garry Lord was still out. Ross Campbell, David Cameron, Innes Jackson and Scott MacMillan made up a strong bench.

GMA’s Craig Anderson remained sidelined with a broken finger, whilst top scorer Ewen Fraser and Jamie McFadyen were also missing. Former Lochaber player John Sweeney returned to the side and former Oban Celtic player Ally McKerracher featured in attack.

Oban Camanachd hit the front on 26 minutes when Connor Howe took a lovely touch as he got onto Daniel Madej’s low ball from the left before slotting it into the bottom corner of the net from inside the ‘D’.

Daniel Madej added his name to the scoresheet on 35 minutes. Malcolm Clark’s hit-in from the right dropped into the danger area where Connor Howe shot goalwards. GMA goalie Jonathon Oates saved with his legs but Daniel Madej turned the rebound home.

The Oban side passed up chances to put the tie out of sight and were made to pay on 63 minutes with all three GMA substitutes involved in their goal. Former Skye midfielder Stewart Grant played James MacLeod’s hit-in forward and John McNulty found Chris Holly-song. Daniel Sloss stretched to divert Holly-song’s shot and the ball fell kindly for McNulty who had continued his run and he swept the ball into the net.

The home forwards passed up a couple of more opportunities before defender Daniel Cameron ran forward unmarked to get on the end of Malcolm Clark’s free-hit from the right and he crashed the ball low into the net to the keeper’s right to make it 3-1 with 71 minutes played.

Connor Howe marked a good individual performance when he added a fourth on 81 minutes. Howe exchanged passes with Daniel Madej on the left before confidently despatching the ball low into the net to make it 4-1.

Oban Camanachd manager Gareth Evans said: ‘I’m happy with the win. GMA are always tough opponents and it was good to get the first two goals but we were a bit sluggish after that. We passed up some chances and knew the third goal of the game would be important. GMA got it. We wobbled a bit without GMA creating any real chances, although Ally McKerracher caused us problems, but Daniel Cameron) gave us breathing space with a good finish.

‘Connor Howe got his second and he can be pleased with his performance. He did very well, as did Daniel Cameron.’

GMA boss Alan MacRae added: ‘Oban Camanachd deserved the win. They were the better team. We played well in the first half and kept ourselves in it but were troubled by a couple of hamstring injuries early on. We’ll come back fighting though.”’

Johnston Gill’s Kinlochshiel side have been showing a bit of form in recent weeks and they visit Mossfield in the Mowi Premiership on Saturday.

Kinlochshiel have fielded a full strength side in their last two matches but Gareth Evans faces a selection headache for this one.

‘Garry Lord will still be out,’ said Evans, ‘and we’ll also be without Daniel Cameron, Malcolm Clark, Daniel Madej and David Cameron. At least it’s a league game rather than a cup tie so I suppose it will take care of itself.’

Oban Celtic 2 Kyles Athletic 4

Oban Celtic gave Kyles Athletic a scare before the Tighnabruaich men eventually won 4-2 in their noon throw-up at Mossfield.

Both sides were short of their recognised squad although Celtic’s Lennon Campbell returned whilst 2021 runners-up Kyles Athletic had Callum Millar back in attack.

Kyles had reason to feel optimistic when, ahead of throw-up, captain Innes MacDonald won the toss for the first time in seven matches.

Lennon Campbell gave Celtic the lead on 15 minutes when he finished well from the right following a sweeping move forward. Kyles keeper John Whyte went for the ball with his hand but couldn’t keep the strike out.

When referee Des McNulty awarded Kyles a penalty on 55 minutes, Ross MacRae sent the ball low into the net to the keeper’s right.

Callum Millar turned home a rebound off the keeper following Ross MacRae’s strike from wide on the left on 65 minutes to put Kyles ahead for the first time in the tie and Millar scored again on 73 minutes when Celtic couldn’t clear Ross MacRae’s free-hit.

Roddy MacDonald, a substitute following his late return from a certain football match in Leipzig, sent the ball high into the net on his back-hand from wide on the left following Max Carr’s 81st minute hit-in from the right to make it 4-1.

Celtic’s Scott Dempster tucked home a rebound off the keeper on 83 minutes to make the final score 4-2.

Oban Celtic manager Dougie MacIntyre was pleased with his team’s efforts. He said: ‘Our boys played great today and we gave Kyles a good game for an hour or so. Kyles are a higher league team and they deserved to win. We’ve been struggling lately and our player pool isn’t big enough but there were positives for us.

‘We had a junior game last week featuring eight 15 and 16-year-olds and some were involved today so the future is looking bright. We aren’t going to win anything anytime soon but I want us to be competitive.’

Kyles Athletic boss Robert Baxter said: ‘That was a difficult tie and all credit to Oban Celtic as they made us work for that. I know we were short of players but we didn’t get going in the first half and that was down to Oban Celtic and how they played.’

Kyles talisman Roddy MacDonald added: ‘We were a bit lacklustre. We’re short of bodies so we’ll take the result and hopefully get some boys back for our next game.’

Oban Celtic are on their trails to Glasgow Mid Argyll in the Scottish Sea Farms Glasgow Celtic Society Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.

Inveraray 4 Col Glen 1

Inveraray came from a goal down to seal a 4-1 derby win over Col Glen in their 3pm throw-up at the Winterton.

Inveraray’s Lewis Montgomery was suspended for this one against the Mowi South Division 1 opponents.

Former Skye Camanachd player Daniel MacDonald gave Col Glen the lead on 34 minutes with a great strike, but Ally MacDonald levelled five minutes before the interval with a shot from distance.

Inveraray took the lead a minute into the second half with Ross MacMillan scoring following Fraser Watt’s dummy and Fraser Watt on 70 and 80 minutes put the home side out of sight.

Kyle MacFarlane drew Cruachanside level on 56 minutes, only for former Scotland international John MacDonald to put Ballachullish back in front on 77 minutes.

Artemis Macaulay Cup – first round

Newtonmore 0 Kinlochshiel 3

It was a great strike as MacRae turned on Donald Nixon’s free-hit from midfield, his superb back-hand effort from wide on the left going low into the net to make it 3-1.

Mowi North Division 1

Inverness 5 Glengarry 3

The Inverness first team held off a spirited Glengarry side to win 3-0 at Bught Park.

This was always going to be a tough afternoon for the players and as well as the rain, the grass was longer than both teams would have liked.

Glengarry almost took the lead in the opening minute when Steven Cameron won the ball in the centre of the park and picked out Nick Dalgety who found Shaun Nicolson on the left, but he blazed his shot over from 15 yards.

It was Inverness who took the lead on 24 minutes. Charlie MacDonald weaved his way forward and although his shot was saved by Glengarry keeper Gordon MacDonald, Steven Bellshaw tapped the rebound in from three yards.

Glengarry levelled on 33 minutes. Rhu MacDonald chipped a good ball over the Inverness defence, finding Shaun Nicolson free on the left, and he slammed the ball inside Inverness keeper Dougie Rankin’s left post to make it 1-1.

This was an open contest and, on 38 minutes, Charlie MacDonald’s shot looked to be heading for the net before the ball held up on the long, wet grass, inches from the goal line, but Steven Bellshaw reacted first to pounce on the ball to score.

Glengarry should have gone into the interval all-square when Shaun Nicolson was put through on goal by Nick Dalgety but he sliced his shot past the post.

Inverness made a strong start to the second half and when Ewan Campbell found Charlie MacDonald on the right, he fired the ball inside the keeper’s right post to make it 3-1 with 49 minutes played.

Inverness stretched their lead with a fortunate goal on 69 minutes. Steven Bellshaw, who was free on the right, ‘topped’ his shot but what looked like a harmless effort went under keeper Gordon MacDonald’s feet and into the net to complete the Inverness man’s hat-trick.

Referee John Angus Gillies awarded Glengarry a penalty for hacking inside the ‘D’ on 73 minutes. Shaun Nicolson stepped up but blasted the spot-hit over the bar.

The visitors pulled a goal back on 75 minutes. Dougie Rankin saved Nick Dalgety’s shot but the ball was only half cleared and fell to Dalgety again inside the ‘D’ and he picked out Rhu MacDonald in front of goal who tapped the ball home to make it 4-2.

Steven Bellshaw scored his fourth goal of the game on 81 minutes, showing his class as he turned Matthew Ross before slotting the ball by the keeper.

Glengarry were awarded a second penalty on 88 minutes when referee Gillies and the goal judge agreed Inverness goalie Dougie Rankin had kicked the ball. Nick Dalgety blasted the spot-hit into the top left hand corner of the goal to make the final score 5-3.

Steven Bellshaw turned in a man-of-the-match performance although the whole Inverness forward line played well with Dougie Rankin pulling off some cracking saves in the home goal.

Nick Dalgety played well for Glengarry, as did full centre Steven Cameron.
