Lamlash grab a late equaliser to deny Shiskine win in Arran Dairies match
Arran Dairies League Shiskine 3 Lamlash 3 The Arran football league was minutes away from an early season shock on Monday night.
Lamlash had to score an injury time goal to prevent a surprise defeat to Shiskine, which would have been a first for a long time.
The home side went into a 2-0 lead with their new signing Conner Jack grabbing both the goals.
Lamlash got goals back through a penalty and a Shiskine own goal. Jack scored once more to get his hat trick and also the man of the match award from referee Willie Sillars.
In the dying minutes Ben Tattersfield produced a great finish on his wrong foot to secure a late point for the visiting team to make it 3-3.
Shiskine midfielder Callan Taylor picked up a nasty injury in the game by breaking his elbow.
Hopefully the youngster will make a speedy recovery and get back to playing for the reds this season.
Northend 3 Brodick 9
In the other game Brodick romped to victory against a Northend side who only managed to find their way in the second half of their game. Northend were the hosts at the Ewe Camp in perfect, midge-free conditions.
Brodick romped to a 5-0 half time lead but didn’t get things all their own way in the second half as, although 7-0 up, Northend found the net through a speculative free kick which caught stand-in goalie/manager Alan Murray off guard.
Nathan Carey then scored a screamer and David Jamieson pounced on a defensive lapse to make the final score 9-3.
Brodick scorers were Joel Small – hat trick, Toby Wingham – hat trick, Cameron Logan with two and Alister McMillan.
Acting captain Euan Smith had the chance to make it double figures but his chance at a penalty was saved.
Referee Stevie Judge gave the man of the match award to Joel Small.
The next fixtures in the Arran Dairies League will be on Monday May 28, when Northend take on Southend at 7pm and Lamlash go head to head with Brodick at 6.30pm in a repeat of the Arran Haulage Cup final.
Concentration etched on Shiskine players’ faces.
