Marine Harvest South Division 2 Inveraray 5 Glasgow MA 0
THE INVERARAY second team finally secured the Marine Harvest South Division 2 title when they defeated the Glasgow Mid Argyll seconds 5-0. This was Inveraray’s home match but after three failed attempts to get the fixture played, Inveraray agreed to reverse the fixture from The Winterton to Yoker.
Inveraray travelled with a blend of youth and experience and the young visiting defence coped well with a spell of early GMA pressure, with 17-year-old Lewis Cameron and 18-yearold captain Alan Cameron playing their usual solid, consistent games.
However, it was the experienced Inveraray forward pairing of Garry MacPherson and David Robertson who scored on 21 and 37 minutes to give ’Aray a 2-0 interval lead.
Former Strachur team mates Ross Montgomery, 17, and Andrew Wilson, were having a good battle during the second half, but the GMA forwards couldn’t find a way past the Inveraray defence and a stubborn Graham MacPherson in the Inveraray goal.
David Robertson completed his hat-trick with goals on 60 and 72 minutes and he could have helped himself to a fourth but missed the target from just two yards out when it looked easier to score.
Inveraray introduced 14-year-old Coll MacKay, Andrew Fraser, 16, and 17-yearold Hamish MacLennan who all made an impact on the game.
Inveraray centre David MacPherson completed the scoring when his low shot squeezed past the young GMA keeper to make it 5-0; the same scoreline as when the sides met in Glasgow earlier in the season.
Inveraray have one match to go and they will be determined to go through the league season undefeated – Dunoon Camanachd are currently standing in their way.
That match is scheduled for The Winterton this coming Saturday when Inveraray will be presented with the Marine Harvest South Division 2 title which will be added to the Bullough Cup won earlier in the season.
