MacPher­son Cup goes to Kin­gussie

The Oban Times - - Sport -

THE MacPher­son Cup competition for North of Scot­land sec­ondary schools took place last week at Bught Park, In­ver­ness. Three schools were in at­ten­dance – Lochaber, Glenurquhart and Kin­gussie, with Portree hav­ing pulled out of the competition due to a bug.

Teams played each other once with some very close re­sults, no less in the Glenurquhart v Lochaber game which was goal­less for the ma­jor­ity, Lochaber scor­ing in the fi­nal minute of play to take the win. This 1- 0 win over the Glen saw them progress to the fi­nal to face a very strong Kin­gussie High team.

The fi­nal saw some ex­cel­lent shinty be­ing played by both teams. Kin­gussie proved too strong for Lochaber and in the end ran out com­fort­able win­ners, lift­ing the MacPher­son Cup, which Lochaber had pre­vi­ously re­tained since 2001.
