Skye Ca­manachd 2 Glas­gow Mid Ar­gyll 1

Skye Ca­manachd are through to the Ca­manachd Cup quar­ter-fi­nals af­ter they beat Glas­gow Mid Ar­gyll 2-1 in their last 16 re­play at Pairc nan Laoch, Portree.

The match was played in glo­ri­ous con­di­tions and Craig An­der­son and Euan Forsyth forced good early saves from Skye keeper Iain MacLeod.

Kenny Camp­bell, play­ing at full for­ward for Skye, sent an ef­fort past the post and although the first half was end-to- end, there was lit­tle to trou­ble ei­ther keeper other than an­other Kenny Camp­bell strike on 41 min­utes which was saved with his feet by GMA goalie Jonathon Oates af­ter a Jor­dan Murchi­son shot was blocked.

GMA took the lead on 46 min­utes when a fierce 25-yard shot from Euan Forsyth beat an un­sighted Iain Macleod to put the vis­i­tors in front.

The goal seemed to jolt Skye into ac­tion and they drew level on 52 min­utes.

Will Cowie sent a ball on goal which keeper Oates saved but the ball kicked up and Jor­dan Murchi­son scored to make it 1-1.

Skye made changes as the game moved into the fi­nal 15 min­utes and the switches paid off on 79 min­utes. Iain MacLeod struck a long goal-hit which was played on by Kenny Camp­bell to James Pringle who had been pushed for­ward from wing cen­tre to wing for­ward. Pringle crossed to Will Cowie who took a good first touch to beat his man and fin­ished off the best move of the match to put Skye 2-1 in front.

GMA pushed to take the tie into ex­tra-time but it’s Skye who go for­ward to a quar­ter-fi­nal tie against New­ton­more at the Ei­lan on Satur­day July 9.
