Friendly win for Lochaber

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

LOCHABER hosted Mull in a friendly fix­ture on Satur­day af­ter Mull’s league game had been can­celled. It was the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for Lochaber to put into prac­tice what they have been work­ing on in train­ing be­fore this Satur­day’s away trip to Dee­side which is the first fix­ture since the league split.

Lochaber started the brighter with their backs find­ing lots of space in the Mull de­fence. They thought they had scored within the first few min­utes when Euan Larter crossed the line but he had gone into touch first.

It wasn’t long be­fore Lochaber got their first try af­ter all the early pres­sure with Find­lay Ire­land cross­ing the line and Cal­lum Boyd con­vert­ing.

This seemed to rally the Mull side who were next to score. They then went on to score two more tries to lead 7-17 at half­time.

At the start of the sec­ond half Lochaber came rac­ing out of the gates and scored three more tries be­fore Mull replied with one of their own to bring the score to 26-24. The score­line stayed like that for a while un­til Lochaber scored three more tries in the last 10 min­utes to win the game 45-24.

Lochaber try scor­ers were Find­lay Ire­land (3), Jamie Collins (2), Euan Larter and Christo­pher Simp­son. Cal­lum Boyd kicked five con­ver­sions.
