Kyles suffered a blow after five minutes when Callum Miller had to go off with a hamstring problem so Donald Irvine went to full back.
Glenurquhart were on top during the early stages but Kyles went in front on 17 minutes. Andrew King sent a free-hit down the right to Robbie MacLeod. His cross to the back post was missed by everyone so Martin MacFadyen ran back to stop the ball going out for a shy. MacFadyen sent a swerving ball into the goal area and it deceived Glenurquhart goalie Garry MacKintosh, dropping into the corner of the net.
A minute later, Michael Fraser came on in attack for an injured Fraser Heath, with Connor Golabeck dropping into the back four to replace Heath.
Kyles’ goalie John Whyte did well to keep out a deflected Ally MacKintosh shot from distance on 39 minutes.
Glenurquhart had also lost Neale Reid through injury in the first half but they drew level five minutes from half time. John Whyte did well to save a Daniel MacKintosh shot which came through a ruck of players but James MacPherson was quickly onto the rebound to score.
Both keepers were called into action a minute into the second half. First John Whyte threw himself to his right to protect his goal. Then play immediately switched to the other end where Garry MacKintosh used his body to stop Kyles regaining the lead.
Kyles Athletic were the stronger side during the final half hour of the contest and they went on to score three more times to win the game. Sandy MacKenzie put them back in front on 61 minutes. Roddy MacDonald shot goalwards following a Gordon Whyte free-hit. Garry MacKintosh made the save but MacKenzie followed up to score.
Gordon Whyte made it 3-1 five minutes later. Glenurquhart failed to clear a Kyles attack and Robbie MacLeod drifted the ball to the back post where Innes MacDonald knocked it down to Gordon Whyte who swept the ball into the net.
The visitors were awarded a penalty by referee Innes Wood on 88 minutes when Connor Golabeck seemed to be penalised. However, Garry MacKintosh saved Gordon Whyte’s spot-hit with his feet. As the ball broke, Kyles were awarded a free-hit just outside the ‘D’ which Gordon Whyte played to Roddy MacDonald who ran in at the back post to score.
There was still time for brothers Roddy MacDonald and Innes MacDonald to exchange passes forward from midfield. Again referee Wood pointed to the penalty spot, this time penalising keeper MacKintosh for throwing his stick. The goalie redeemed himself, however, stretching high to turn away Innes MacDonald’s effort from the spot which was heading in just under the bar. Kyles now top the table on goal difference. Newtonmore 3 Lochaber 0 Newtonmore go fourth in shinty’s top flight after they beat Lochaber 3- 0 at The Eilan.
Newtonmore took the lead on 29 minutes when Rory Kennedy justified his selection in the forward line with the game’s opening goal. Glen MacKintosh added a second on 34 minutes and it stayed that way until the interval.
Iain Robinson got in on the act with a goal on 34 minutes to round off the 3- 0 win. Glasgow Mid Argyll 1 Kilmallie 0 Glasgow Mid Argyll and Kilmallie met in the league for the second time this season. GMA were 2-1 winners at Canal Parks at the end of March and they secured what could yet prove to be a crucial 1- 0 victory in this one at Yoker.
GMA were along usual lines with boss George Hay having a full squad to choose from. Kilmallie’s suspension woes continued and manager Mark MacPherson was without Duncan Rodger who served a one game ban following his red card against Inverness, whilst Michael Rodger started a two-game ban for passing through the disciplinary points threshold.
The only goal of the game came early in the match. There were only six minutes played when Craig Anderson sent the ball into the ‘D’ and Garry Luke ran in to produce a good finish from a tight angle.
Kilmallie’s cause wasn’t helped by two red cards. First Aaron Sandison picked up a yellow card for a wild swing and then received a second yellow for something said to referee Robert Baxter.
Liam Cameron was sent off following a challenge on Garry Luke.
Both will miss this weekend’s Artemis Macaulay Cup tie against Kyles Athletic at Tighnabruaich.

Kingussie 2 Newtonmore 2 Newtonmore came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Kingussie in the Badenoch reserve team derby in front of a large crowd at The Dell on Friday April 21.
Kingussie resisted the temptation to field their more experienced players such as Ronald Ross, John Gibson or Garry Munro, whilst Rory Fraser was an unused substitute.
Newtonmore’s Danny Macrae made a welcome return to shinty following an absence of over two years but having taken a knock in training during the week, he started the 6.30pm throw-up on the bench.
With Kenny Ross full centre and Scott Campbell wing centre, Newtonmore had the better of the first half but they fell behind to a Bradley Harvey goal on 10 minutes. Kingussie had a shy on the left which found Kevin Thain and his strike was well saved by Newtonmore goalkeeper Callum Grover. But the rebound came out to Bradley Harvey and his well-struck shot from edge of box gave the keeper no chance.
The second half was a fairly even affair.
On 59 minutes, Danny MacRae came off the bench in place of Orsten Gardiner, with Macrae going into full forward.
Kingussie looked to have won the game when Bradley Harvey got his and his side’s second goal of the evening on 70 minutes. Kevin Thain fed the ball to Harvey on the right and he had time to steady himself before sending a rocket shot high into the net, suffering a knock in the process.
The game had now sprung to life and, just a minute later, Calum Stewart halved the deficit. From the throw-up, Newtonmore pressed the home defence and they worked the ball to Callum Stewart who found space on the right and, after his initial effort had been blocked, he shot across the Kingussie keeper Robert Shiells to make it 2-1.
With 12 minutes remaining, the stage was set for Danny Macrae to make an impact and he did just that when he ran in on goal to get on the end of a ’More shy by the corner flag on the left. Macrae took a touch before cleverly flicking the ball into the net to make it 2-2.
Kingussie keeper Robert Shiells was the man of the match, making a number of excellent saves.
Kingussie stay top of the table on goal difference, although they have played a game more than second-placed Newtonmore. Fort William 2 Kinlochshiel 3 The Kinlochshiel and Fort William second teams met for the second successive Saturday.
This was to be a noon league encounter at Kirkton but the match was switched to An Aird on Friday morning when it was ruled ’Shiel’s pitch couldn’t host two matches.
A Donnie Walker goal gave Fort William victory in their Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup tie a week earlier, but this time a Scott MacLean goal a couple of minutes from time gave ’Shiel a 3-2 win.
Victor Smith fired Fort William into a 16 minute lead, but Duncan Matheson made it 1-1 at the break with a goal on 39 minutes.
Neil Fraser put ’Shiel 2-1 ahead on 62 minutes but Victor Smith got his second on 69 minutes.
The winning goal came with just two minutes remaining when Scot MacLean scored to give ’Shiel both points. Glenurquhart 2 Skye Camanachd 3 The Skye seconds beat Glenurquhart’s second team by the odd goal in five in their noon throw up at Blairbeg.
Skye raced into a 2- 0 lead with goals from Connor Gilpin on six minutes and Ross Gordon on 20 minutes.
However, a Calum Miller goal on 35 minutes cut Skye’s lead at the break.
A David MacLennan penalty on 55 minutes restored parity but the winner came on 65 minutes when Ross Gordon got his second, volleying the ball into the corner of the net to give Skye their first league win of the season.

Iain MacMillan made it 2- 0 on 53 minutes and Craig MacDougall got his second to make it 3-1 with 15 minutes remaining.
A special mention must go to Lochside’s Daniel Sloss, only 14, but looks a great prospect for the future

Caberfeidh 2 Strathspey Camanachd 1 With table toppers Glengarry in cup action, the Caberfeidh colts took the opportunity to draw level on points at the top of the table with a 2-1 win over third placed Strathspey Camanachd at Castle Leod.
Ruaraidh McCreadie put Caberfeidh ahead on 28 minutes and they took that lead into the break.
Conor Aubrey levelled a minute after the re-start but Caberfeidh’s John Ritchie grabbed the winner on 65 minutes.
Caberfeidh now only trail Glengarry on goal difference, but they have played a game more. Lochaber 10 Strathglass 1 The Lochaber reserves overcame the Strathglass reserves 10-1 at Spean Bridge.
Keith Neville on three minutes and Sam Lees on six minutes had Lochaber 2- 0 ahead.
Lachlan Campbell on 12 minutes and Stuart Matheson a couple of minutes later doubled the home side’s advantage. A second from Keith Neville on 36 minutes made it 5- 0 at half time. Neil MacDonald added a sixth a minute after the re-start and although Barry John Phimister pulled a goal back on 66 minutes, a second from Lachlan Campbell a couple of minutes later followed by Neil MacDonald’s second on 70 minutes made it 8-1.
Lachlan Campbell completed his hat-trick on 77 minutes and Stuart Matheson got his second to make it 10-1 with six minutes remaining.
The win means Lochaber climb to fourth in the division. Inverness 0 Lovat 10 The Lovat reserves were too strong for an under-strength Inverness reserve side, winning 10- 0 at The Bught Park.
A number of first team absentees and some player unavailability left Inverness boss Allan Macleod short.
Lovat’s Duncan Collings served the second game of a two match suspension.
The goals were shared between just two players; youngster Cameron MacMillan and the more experienced Raymond Rennie.
Raymond Rennie broke the deadlock on 28 minutes and Cameron MacMillan made it 2- 0 on 38 minutes. Rennie got his second a couple of minutes later to make it 3- 0 at the break.
Raymond Rennie took his tally to six goals with efforts on 50, 60, 65 and 75 minutes.
Rennie then turned provider as Cameron MacMillan netted a seven minute hat-trick as goals on 79, 84 and 86 minutes took his total for the day to four.
