Heavy defeat for Lochaber away to Ross Sutherland
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.
