The Oban Times - - Sport -

SKYE clinched pro­mo­tion to the premier­ship with a hard-fought win against near­est ri­vals Kil­mallie. The home side took the lead though Liam Mac­Don­ald, but Wil­lie Cowie equalised three mintues later. John Stewart re­stored Kil­mallie’s lead, but goals from Ian Ni­col­son, Jonathan Ma­clen­nan and Jor­dan Murchi­son en­sured the is­lan­ders will be play­ing shinty in the top flight next sea­son.

BAL­LACHUL­ISH suf­fered the em­bar­rass­ment of los­ing 11- 0 at the hands of Caber­feidh last week­end. Balla had no an­swer to the slick mov­ing Cabers who were in ram­pant mood.

lost 2-1 to Aber­dour at the week­end, leav­ing them in 7th place in the South Di­vi­sion One.

De­spite tak­ing the lead in the 6th minute through Wil­lie Neil­son, Aber­dour came back with goals in the 25th and 65th min­utes to take the two points.

Davie Thom­son’s men will be hop­ing for a bet­ter re­sult this Satur­day, when they play hosts to bot­tom side Glenorchy, with an 11.30am throw-up.

IN­VER­ARAY’S sec­ond string en­dured de­feat on the Isle of Bute on Satur­day, dent­ing their ti­tle hopes. A sin­gle goal be­fore half-time by Bute’s James Craig was added to by three sec­ond-half strikes to leave In­ver­aray on the wrong end of a 4- 0 loss.

KYLES put a stop to a re­cent run of poor re­sults with a thump­ing

re­main sec­ond bot­tom of the di­vi­sion fol­low­ing Satur­day’s 2- 0 de­feat away to Oban Celtic. A Lee Askew dou­ble ei­ther side of half-time was enough to se­cure the points for the Oban out­fit, who re­main on course to mount a se­ri­ous ti­tle chal­lenge.

Celtic sit just a point be­hind league lead­ers and lo­cal ri­vals Lochside Rovers, with five games each re­main­ing.

It wasn’t all bad news for Kil­mory, how­ever, as Stra­chur were docked another two points - the club’s sec­ond such sanc­tion of the sea­son - for fail­ing to field a team against Lochside in Oban, leav­ing Stra­chur just three points above Kil­mory in the league with three games left.

BUTE trav­elled to take on In­ver­aray’s sec­ond team at the Win­ter­ton last Satur­day and recorded an im­pres­sive 4- 0 win. Net­ting for the is­lan­ders was James Craig (2), Neil MacKirdy and Gor­don MacMil­lan
