Marine Harvest South Division 1
Lochside Rovers 6 Taynuilt 2
The fixture between Taynuilt and Lochside Rovers was originally scheduled for Taynuilt Sports Field but was switched to Ganavan during the week.
And league leaders Lochside Rovers stay out in front after running out 6-2 winners.
Scott MacMillan was in the Lochside ranks and he opened the scoring on six minutes.
Former Lochside player Liam Higgins drew Taynuilt level on the half-hour mark.
Scott MacMillan put the Oban side back in front with his second goal on 33 minutes but again Liam Higgins equalised, this time just a minute later, and it remained 2-2 until the break.
The second half belonged to Lochside and Scott MacMillan completed his hat-trick on 48 minutes.
Oban Saints footballer Donald Campbell wrapped up the Lochside victory with a hat-trick thanks to goals on 70, 82 and 85 minutes to make it 6-2.
Lochside stay a point clear of Aberdour at the top of the table but they have played three games more.
Col Glen 0 Oban Celtic 5
Oban Celtic got back on their winning ways when they defeat- ed Col Glen 5- 0 at Glendaruel.
The Oban side travelled determined to prove a point to manger Kenny Wotherspoon after the disappointment a point dropped against Taynuilt the previous week.
Celtic started well and forced the Col Glen keeper into a number of saves. They had a chance to take the lead on 14 minutes when referee Ewan MacDonald awarded them a penalty and Daniel Madej scored from the spot.
The visitors continued to press and they doubled their lead four minutes later when a throughball from Kenny Wotherspoon was met by the advancing Fraser MacMillan who rifled a shot into the top right corner of the net.
Celtic pretty much settled the tie four minutes before half-time when Fraser MacMillan grabbed his second to make it 3- 0.
Any chance Col Glen had of getting back into the game disappeared three minutes after the restart when Daniel MacMillan scored a fourth.
Celtic completed the scoring on 52 minutes when Daniel MacMillan grabbed his second to make it 5- 0.
Col Glen stuck at it but they could find no way through the Celtic back four of Andy MacDonald, Ally McKerracher, Lewis McPhee and David Hill.
The final outcome was Col Glen’s biggest home defeat of the season and Oban Celtic now climb above them into third spot in the league and they have games in hand on the two teams above them.
After the match, Oban Celtic manager Kenny Wotherspoon said: ‘I was delighted with the response I got from the lads today.
‘Everyone performed to the level I expect. It’s another game played and two more points on the board. We will just keep working towards our target for the season.’
Aberdour 2 Glenorchy 1
Aberdour came from behind to beat Glenorchy 2-1 at Sliver Sands.
Aberdour went a man down early in the game when Finlay Williamson was sent off by referee David Mitchell for a late swing at Duncan Smith.
Duncan Smith proved to be both saint and sinner for Glenorchy. He gave them the lead on 15 minutes when he slotted the ball home.
But an Angus Thorburn volley made it 1-1 a couple of minutes later.
Aberdour weren’t playing like a team a player short and David MacKenzie passed up a couple of chances to put them in front.
Aberdour took the lead a minute into the second half when Jack Mitchell thumped the ball high into the net with what proved to be the winning goal.
The match turned into a tousy affair and, with five minutes remaining, there was more paperwork for referee David Mitchell after he sent off Glenorchy scorer Duncan Smith who will miss this Saturday’s league meeting with Oban Celtic. Throw-up is at 1pm.
Kyles Athletic 3 Inveraray 4
The reserve derby meeting between Kyles Athletic and Inveraray was a noon throw-up and the home side won it by the odd goal in seven at Tighnabruaich.
Lewis Montgomery gave the visitors a 10 minute lead and he got his and Inveraray’s second on 40 minutes.
Kyles were never out of it though and Martin MacFadyen made it 2-1 a couple of minutes before the break.
Kenneth Kirkhope made it 3-1 on 47 minutes but, just 60 seconds later, Kyle Mcmartin was on target to make it 3-2.
Kenneth Kirkhope got his second on 78 minutes to give Inveraray some breathing space. And they needed it as Martin MacFadyen got his second a couple of minutes from time to make it 4-3.
This was the Inveraray reserves first league win of the season.
They remain bottom of the table but now only trail Glenorchy and the Kyles reserves on goal difference.
