Heavy de­feat for Lochaber

The Oban Times - - Sport -

LOCHABER played their first game in two months on Satur­day against High­land Reds.

With the split in the league al­ready hap­pened, this game would have no ef­fect on any league standings as Lochaber are in the bot­tom half and High­land are in the top half.

The game was tight for the first 20 min­utes or so, with High­land ap­ply­ing most of the pres­sure.

That pres­sure even­tu­ally paid off for the vis­i­tors who broke the dead­lock. They were then able to cap­i­talise on some rusti­ness in the Lochaber de­fence af­ter a long lay off and scored a few more tries in quick suc­ces­sion.

The sec­ond half saw much more of the same with Lochaber hav­ing a few for­ays into the High­land 22. Cal­lum MacDon­ald man­aged to barge his way over the High­land line from a tap penalty five me­tres from the line to get Lochaber on the score board. The fi­nal score was Lochaber 5-High­land Reds 64.

Lochaber will now play Shet­land at home on Jan­uary 28 with a 2pm kick off in the first game of the split.
