Un­der­dogs Lo­vat lift shinty’s top prize

The Oban Times - - Review -

SHINTY fever was in the air on Septem­ber 19 as more than 3,000 trav­el­ling supporters de­scended on Oban’s Moss­field sta­dium for shinty’s show­piece oc­ca­sion - the Ca­manachd Cup fi­nal.

Un­der­dogs Lo­vat even­tu­ally tri­umphed over the much-fan­cied Kyles 2-1 in a com­pelling, dra­matic en­counter.

There were a few sore heads on Sun­day morn­ing as Lo­vat fans cel­e­brated the team’s first cup win since 1953.
