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.
