Watt double helps Inveraray beat Mid Argyll
Marine Harvest National Division
Inveraray 3, Glasgow MA 1 Fraser Watt scored twice as Inveraray beat Glasgow Mid Argyll 3-1 at The Winterton.
Inveraray’s Garry MacPherson was free of suspension while keeper Scott McLachlan also returned.
Fraser Watt got the opener with the only goal of the first half on 35 minutes and he got his and Inveraray’s second a couple of minutes into the second half.
Lewis MacNicol added a third on 54 minutes to make the points safe. Garry MacPherson will miss Inveraray’s Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup second round tie at Kilmallie this Saturday after he was sent off by referee Ross Brown on 80 minutes for an off-the-ball incident involving Ewen Murray.
GMA’s Jamie MacFadyen pulled a goal back a minute later but Inveraray stayed in front to take the points.
Marine Harvest South Division 1
Col Glen 4, Inveraray 3 A Scott MacVicar goal a couple of minutes from time gave Col Glen a 4-3 win over the Inveraray Colts at Glendaruel.
Inveraray drew first blood with Campbell Watt pouncing following a save from keeper MacVicar.
Col Glen equalised with a well-hit Finan Kennedy strike on 25 minutes. Some thought Kennedy’s effort had gone wide but the ball went through a hole in the net.
Campbell Watt restored Inveraray’s lead on 31 minutes with a rocket of a shot high into the net.
However, Neily Mcnaughton netted on 40 minutes when he punished the Inveraray defence for not clearing their lines and this made it 2-2 at half-time. The second half was an end to end affair and Inveraray took the lead for the third time when David Robertson went on a mazy run before striking a low 30-yarder past the keeper, who couldn’t judge the bounce of the ball.
The battling Col Glen side immediately pulled themselves back into the game with a well-angled Scott MacVicar drive from out wide which made it 3-3 with 70 minutes played.
And Scott MacVicar also had the final say, grabbing the winner on 88 minutes with another well-struck shot.
