The Oban Times - - SPORT - BT Cale­do­nia 2NW

LOCHABER trav­elled to Ross Suther­land re­cently in their last away game be­fore the league split that will see the top three and bot­tom three teams from Cale­do­nia North West and North East Di­vi­sion 2 join each other re­spec­tively.

Ross Suther­land opened the scor­ing early on and kept the pres­sure scor­ing sev­eral tries in the first 20 min­utes be­fore Lochaber started to come back into the game with the de­fence im­prov­ing and their makeshift scrum go­ing well and tak­ing the set piece against the head on a few oc­ca­sions.

Un­for­tu­nately, the vis­i­tors were un­able to break down the Ross de­fence with any of their at­tacks.

With hooker Jamie Milne go­ing off with a calf in­jury, the scrums be­came un­con­tested, and Ross were able to make the ex­tra man count to­wards the end of the first half to get an­other cou­ple of tries.

The sec­ond half was much the same as the first with the Lochaber de­fence work­ing tire­lessly to keep the score down. Un­for­tu­nately, a few mis­takes in de­fence al­lowed for some easy tries for the home team.

Lochaber were un­able to get on the score board for the first time in an away game this sea­son. The fi­nal score was Ross Suther­land 67, Lochaber 0.

Lochaber now have two home games be­fore the split against the other two teams in the bot­tom half of the North West ta­ble. Lochaber’s next game is against Stornoway this Satur­day at Banavie with a 2pm kick- off.
