The Oban Times - - Sport -

Fort Wil­liam 0 New­ton­more 2

New­ton­more will host Caber­feidh in the MacTav­ish Cup quar­ter-fi­nals af­ter they beat Fort Wil­liam 2- 0 in their 3pm throw up at An Aird.

Fort Wil­liam’s Ar­ran MacPhee was back in the fold af­ter re­cov­er­ing from in­jury and there was also a place for Bryan Simp­son.

New­ton­more de­fender Andy MacK­in­tosh started a twogame ban fol­low­ing his red card against Oban Ca­manachd in his team’s last out­ing. Michael Russell was named in the squad fol­low­ing a spell work­ing abroad.

This was one of a num­ber of games across the coun­try where there was a minute’s si­lence ahead of throw-up in mem­ory of Oban Ca­manachd stal­wart Neil ‘Nonny’ MacInnes.

New­ton­more took the lead on 15 min­utes. David MacLean played a good pass down the line to Iain Robin­son who col­lected pos­ses­sion just inside the Fort Wil­liam half.

Robin­son used his pace to lose his marker and ran goal­wards be­fore send­ing a pow­er­ful strike past the keeper to make it 1- 0.

Fort Wil­liam gave a good ac­count of them­selves though and it took un­til 62 min­utes be­fore Glen MacK­in­tosh made it 2- 0.

A long pass from mid­field dropped at MacK­in­tosh’s feet and he twisted one way and then the other be­fore send­ing a shot into the net off the post.
