SKYE Ca­manachd’s sec­ond team reached the Strathdearn Cup semi fi­nals af­ter edg­ing out Kin­lochshiel’s sec­ond team 1- 0 in their noon throw up at Pairc nan Laoch, Portree.

Skye Ca­manachd sec­ond team man­ager Davie Pringle made four changes to the squad which beat the Beauly sec­ond team in the league a

week ear­lier. DJ Gilpin, Calum Gibb, Martin Pringle and Sam MacPhee weren’t in­cluded. Cap­tain David Grant re­turned at full back, whilst there were also start­ing places for Ally ‘Cleodi’ MacLeod, James Pringle and Neil John Campbell.

Kin­lochshiel sec­ond team man­ager Wil­lie MacRae con­tin­ued with vet­eran Gra­ham Kennedy in goal, while Scot­land U17 player Jonnie MacAskill starred in mid­field along­side Fraser MacVicar and Ro­nan Tay­lor. Ruairidh MacLeod and Iain MacLel­lan went close for Skye in the first half with Scott Ma­cLean twice shoot­ing wide of tar­get for ’ Shiel.

Ruairidh MacLeod came off in­jured for Skye in the first pe­riod but he re­turned mid­way through the sec­ond half and made the dif­fer­ence on 73 min­utes when he cut in from the Skye right and smashed a great strike over the shoul­der of ’Shiel keeper Gra­ham Kennedy to make it 1- 0.

’Shiel pressed for a lev­eller but the Skye de­fence was strong, with Al­lan MacLeod su­perb at buck­shee back.

Skye fin­ished the match on the at­tack and now look for­ward to a semi fi­nal tie against the win­ners of this com­ing week­end’s quar­ter fi­nal meet­ing be­tween Kil­mallie’s sec­ond team and Lochcar­ron.

Kin­lochshiel de­fender Dun­can Campbell was sent off by ref­eree John Wood for two yel­low cards.
