Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup second round replays Oban Camanachd 1 Kinlochshiel 0
An Andrew ‘ Papa’ MacCuish goal made the difference as Oban Camanachd beat Kinlochshiel 1- 0 in their Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup second round replay at Taynuilt Sports Field.
The sides played out a goalless draw at Kirkton a week earlier and the replay was switched to Taynuilt as Oban Camanachd’s Mossfield pitch was hosting the Oban Live concert.
Oban Camanachd defender Scott McKillop suffered a shin injury in the first game but made it for the replay.
Scott MacMillan was working but Willie Neilson started after coming on as a substitute a week earlier.
Oban Camanachd manager Iain Hay went with something different in attack as he switched Aidan MacIntyre and Lorne Dickie up front with Andrew MacCuish and Malcolm Clark on the wings.
Kinlochshiel boss Johnston Gill didn’t have his selection problems to seek. John MacRae’s red card a week earlier saw him suspended.
Paul MacRae was out with a broken finger, Keith MacRae and Duncan ‘DA’ MacRae were unavailable and Scott MacLean picked up a knee injury in the first match whilst Oliver MacRae and Gordie MacDonald were also out. Jordan Fraser took the absentee list to eight players.
Oban Camanachd had numerous chances to wrap the game up in the first half but, by the interval, they only had one goal to show for their efforts.
The goal came on 36 minutes when a free-hit was played on to Andrew MacCuish who dribbled the ball past the keeper Scott Kennedy before tapping it over the line to make it 1- 0.
A mixture of wasteful finishing and some good goal keeping from Scott Kennedy, particularly one superb double-save, kept Kinlochshiel in it.
The second half was more even, although Camanachd still had chances to add to Mac- Cuish’s goal. Oban Camanachd’s slender lead meant Kinlochshiel were always a threat and Gavin Stobbart had to make a couple of good stops.
Kinlochshiel threw everyone forward for the final minutes of the game in an attempt to force a replay but the Oban Camanachd defence stayed strong.
Kinlochshiel’s Conor Cormack was sent off just after the final whistle. There were around 20 players in and around the Oban Camanachd ‘D’ and when Camanachd cleared the danger. Conor Cormack made a late challenge on Craig MacDougall and a number of players got involved. Referee Deek Cameron sent Cormack off and showed yellow cards to each team.
Kinlochshiel’s cup form hasn’t matched their excellent start to their league campaign. They are now out of shinty’s three major cup competitions so will now focus their attentions on the Premiership where they have won all five of their matches so far.
They head for Blairbeg this Saturday to play Glenurquhart.
Oban Camanachd now travel to The Winterton to play Marine Harvest National Division side Inveraray in the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup quarter-finals on Saturday July 8.
Next up for Iain Hay’s side though is an Artemis Macaulay Cup semi-final against Oban Celtic at Ganavan on Saturday June 17.
Lovat 3 Glenurquhart 0
Lovat will play Kilmallie at Canal Parks in the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup last eight after they beat Glenurquhart 3- 0 in their 3pm throw up at Balgate.
A Michael Fraser goal and a Greg Matheson penalty had the sides tied at a goal apiece in their second round encounter at Blairbeg seven days earlier.
This was the fourth meeting between the sides this season, with Lovat yet to record a win.
An army of volunteers mobilised to clear stones from the surface ahead of throw up as maintenance work on the Balgate pitch during the week, which included spreading coverings of top-soil, had left small stones on the surface.
Referee Martin MacLean carried out a pre-match inspection and declared the field playable.
As with other matches across the country, there was a minute’s silence ahead of throw-up to remember Kilmallie player and Scotland cap Duncan Rodger who passed away earlier in the week.
Daniel Grieve returned for the home side after suspension and injury. James MacPherson was back for Glenurquhart, also after injury, and started on the bench. Callum Smith and David MacLennan remained out and James Hurwood was also missing.
Glenurquhart made a bright start with Neale Reid sending a shot just past the post after just 15 seconds.
The game then flowed from end-to- end and a fierce Greg Matheson shot from 18 yards out hit the Glenurquhart keeper Stuart MacKintosh but he recovered sufficiently to clear the danger.
Lovat took the lead on nine minutes. Greg Matheson’s shot was saved by keeper MacKintosh but Lewis Tawse steered the rebound home to make it 1- 0.
A Danny Kelly strike from distance was stopped by Stuart MacKintosh and Greg Matheson went down under an Andrew Corrigan challenge on the edge of the ‘D’ with the home side appealing in vain for a penalty.
Craig Mainland came on for a limping Martin Mainland on 27 minutes.
Lorne MacKay made it 2- 0 on 30 minutes. MacKay collected the ball and held off two heavy challenges before lashing a venomous shot from 25 yards out, low into the net.
There was more delight for the home support on 33 minutes. A long-range Ryan Ferguson effort was parried by MacKintosh, but Greg Matheson was quickly in to dispatch the loose ball into the net.
Lovat were well worth their 3- 0 interval lead and visiting boss Iain MacLeod made changes with James MacPherson replacing full centre Arran MacDonald. MacPherson joined the attack, Connor Golabek dropped back into defence and Fraser Heath went to centre.
The Lovat defence never really looked like losing a goal with Drew Howie again outstanding against John Barr. He was ably assisted by fellow defenders Daniel Grieve, Callum Cruden and Craig Mainland.
Lovat had a chance to extend their lead on 52 minutes. Ryan Ferguson knocked down a Glenurquhart clearance and the ball dropped into the ‘ D’ where Stuart MacKintosh was penalised for a kick.
Greg Matheson struck the penalty well enough but MacKintosh made a fantastic save with his caman high above his head.
The tie turned tousy towards the end with John Barr and Fraser Heath amongst those finding their way into referee Martin MacLean’s book.
Glenurquhart are now out of all three cup competitions and will focus on finishing as high up the league as possible.
Lovat might have been fortunate to get away with a draw from the first tie but they were terrific in the replay and if they can carry this form forward into their remaining cup matches, they will be a force to be reckoned with.
Teenagers Danny Kelly and Scott MacKenzie, along with the more experienced Ryan Ferguson, were dominant in midfield, providing plenty of balls for the forwards.
Fraser Gallacher’s Lovat side now travel to Canal Parks to play MacTavish Cup finalists Kilmallie in the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup quarter-finals.
Balliemore Cup quarter-finals Skye Camanachd P Fort William P
The Balliemore Cup quarter-final tie between Skye Camanachd and Fort William at Pairc nan Laoch, Portree, was postponed at Fort William’s request following the sad passing of former player Duncan Rodger.
Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup quarter finals Newtonmore 8 Glengarry 3
This Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup quarter-final tie brought together the league leaders from Marine Harvest North Division 1 and North Division 2 at The Eilan.
In the end, holders Newtonmore progressed over their lower league opponents 8-3.
Evan Menzies continued his return to action with a goal after 19 minutes.
John MacKenzie made it 2- 0 on 23 minutes and Evan Menzies got his second on 27 minutes.
Menzies completed his hattrick a couple of minutes later but Daniel MacLennan pulled a goal back on 36 minutes to make it 4-1 at the break.
Newtonmore’s Duncan Gorman and Glengarry’s Daniel MacLennan traded goals on 55 and 58 minutes and Glengarry’s Stuart Gregory made it 5-3 with an hour played.
Evan Menzies netted his fourth goal of the afternoon on 68 minutes and second goals from John MacKenzie on 75 minutes and Duncan Gorman on 82 minutes rounded off the 8-3 victory.
Newtonmore will now play Fort William or Kingussie in the Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup semi-finals.
Generous Newtonmore and Glengarry supporters contributed £640 to a collection for the family of Duncan Rodger, Kilmallie.
Fort William P Kingussie P
The Fort William second team were granted a postponement of their tie against the Kingussie second team following the passing of former Fort player Duncan Rodger.
Marine Harvest Premiership Kyles Athletic 3 Kingussie 1
Kyles Athletic took the chance to extend their lead at the top of the Marine Harvest Premiership, beating Kingussie 3-1 in their 3pm throw-up at Tighnabruaich.
This was the weekend’s only top flight match and table toppers Kyles Athletic had a one point advantage over second placed Kingussie going into the game.
Kyles Athletic manager James Perlich was without Donald Irvine, Dunkie Kerr and Sandy MacKenzie.
James Hutchison returned at full back for Dallas Young’s Kingussie and Lee Bain was deployed at full forward.
However James Falconer, who is fit following injury, was on holiday and youngsters Roddy Young and Ruaridh Anderson were on a school trip.
Martin Dallas has opted not to play again this season. Dylan Borthwick, who made a substitute appearance against Skye a week earlier, was given his first senior start.
Grant Irvine gave Kyles the lead on 21 minutes when he got the better of his marker out wide on the left and, with the referee playing advantage, Irvine sent a rocket shot from a tight angle into the top corner of the net.
Roddy MacDonald made it 2- 0 on the half hour mark. MacDonald came deep to gain possession and his brilliant run with the ball took him past two defenders and into the box where he tapped the ball past helpless keeper Craig Dawson.
Kingussie pulled a goal back on 51 minutes when Lee Bain held the ball up before flicking it to wing forward Lee Riddoch who smashed a shot through the keeper’s legs into the net.
Innes MacDonald sealed the win on 76 minutes. Roddy MacDonald carried the ball out past his man, dragging Innes MacDonald’s marker wide in the process and Roddy MacDonald then touched the ball to his unmarked brother at the front post allowing Innes MacDonald to slip it into the far side of the goal to make it 3-1.
This was a hard fought win for Kyles who are now three points clear at the top of the table. They have only dropped one point from eight league fixtures but they will be aware Kinlochshiel have five wins out of five so far.
Newtonmore P Kilmallie P
The MacTavish Cup Final rehearsal between Newtonmore and Kilmallie was postponed following the passing of Kilmallie player Duncan Rodger.
Marine Harvest National Division Strathglass 1 Inveraray 2
Inveraray knew it was crucial to their title push that they took both points against Strathglass at Cannich and they did just that with a 2-1 win.
Inveraray were without centre line maestro Garry MacPherson and experienced defender Douglas Dando but former Inveraray stalwart David Robertson came out of first team retirement to make his first senior appearance of the season, starting on the bench alongside Robert Wood and Kenneth Kirkhope.
The pitch was in excellent condition and the visitors made a strong start with captain Lewis MacNicol once again dominating the centre line and challenging for every loose ball.
Spurred on by their captain’s efforts, Inveraray started to control the game and what seemed like the inevitable visiting goal came on 13 minutes when a break from the centre line ended on the stick of 18-year- old Lewis Montgomery who slotted home the yellow and blacks’ opener.
As the first half continued, Strathglass slowly edged their way into the game but Inveraray’s mixture of youth and experience earned them a second goal when Allan MacDonald doubled their lead on 34 minutes.
It was a much more determined Strathglass side that started the second half, challenging every free ball and not giving Inveraray any time in possession.
The visitors seemed to struggle in the passenger’s seat for the first time in the game and Darren Reid pulled a goal back on 57 minutes, turning the tempo of the game up once again.
Both sides had their fair share of chances with Inveraray hitting the post but they couldn’t find a way past Strathglass keeper Ally MacAdams who was on fine form.
Inveraray, having already swapped player/manager Ruaraidh Graham for David Robertson, made two further changes, bringing young guns Robert Wood and Kenneth Kirkhope off the bench. Both players made positive contributions, especially Wood who did well to hold the ball up front in an attempt to run the clock down.
This was a clean game played in good spirit with little need for intervention from referee Andy MacLean.
The win lifts Inveraray to fourth in the division and they will now seek revenge on Oban Celtic in the Balliemore cup quarter-final this coming Saturday after the Oban side’s Artemis Macaulay Cup win at The Winterton at the end of April.
Beauly 5 Inverness 1
Beauly came from a goal down to beat Inverness 5-1 in their 3pm throw-up at Braeview Park.
Inverness were without Dougie Rankin who was suspended following his sending off against Oban Celtic the previous Saturday.
James Cameron gave Inverness the lead on 35 minutes but two goals late in the half turned the match Beauly’s way.
Craig Rankin made it 1-1 with a goal on 44 minutes and Jack MacDonald gave the hosts the lead when he scored on the stroke of half time.
Beauly were playing well and Jack MacDonald got his second on 53 minutes and Craig Rankin went on to complete his hat-trick with goals on 66 and 70 minutes.
Marine Harvest North Division 1 Beauly 2 Aberdeen University 8
Aberdeen University bounced back from the previous weekend’s defeat to league leaders Newtonmore by beating the Beauly second team 8-2 in their noon throw-up at Braeview Park.
Robbie Tuach gave Beauly the lead on three minutes but Alex Duncan equalised on nine minutes. Gregor Cushnie put the Students ahead on 12 minutes and Elliot Moir drew Beauly level on 21 minutes but that was as good as it got for the hosts.
The Aberdeen side went on to lead 5-2 at the break through another from Alex Duncan on 38 minutes, Ewan Fraser on 41 minutes and a second Gregor Cushnie goal on 44 minutes.
Ewan Fraser got his second on 53 minutes and Alex Duncan completed his hat-trick on 70 minutes.
Jamie Beaton made 8-2 when he found the back of the net on 77 minutes.
Aberdeen University are now just a point behind third-placed Kingussie reserves and have a couple of games in hand. Kinlochshiel 0 Skye Camanachd 9 Skye Camanachd came out on top in their reserve team derby against the Kinlochshiel second team winning 9- 0 at Kirkton.
With the Kinlochshiel first team having a number of absentees for their Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup second round replay against Oban Camanachd, Jonnie MacAskill, Colin MacDiarmid, Corrin Campbell and WD MacRae were amongst the second team players called up whilst Scott MacLean was injured.
With the Skye seniors idle, second team manager Kenny MacLeod resisted the temptation to load his squad with first team players although he included Ally ‘Cleodi’ MacLeod and Iain MacLellan – both of whom have recently been covering first team absences – with MacLellan starting on the bench.
Iain Nicolson started to get more game time at the request of first team manager Willie Cowie as his recent first team appearances have been limited.
Skye played down the slope in the first half and immediately went on the attack, going in front after 10 minutes.
Ross Gordon made space at the back post to let a cross from the left drop and he crashed the ball home to open the scoring.
Connor Gilpin then scored an eight-minute hat-trick with goals on 15, 22 and 23 minutes before being substituted.
Iain MacLellan came on in Gilpin’s place and scored on 32 minutes to make it 5- 0 at the break.
Skye passed up some chances after the restart before Iain MacLellan got his second on 66 minutes.
Another Ross Gordon strike on 72 minutes was arguably the goal of the game. Gordon jinked on the left to make enough space to send a blistering shot over keeper Raymond Gillies’ left to make it 7- 0.
John Angus MacInnes slotted home an eighth on 77 minutes after Connor Gilpin’s effort had come back off the post and Gilpin, who came back on during the second half, made it 9- 0 a minute later.
Ross Gordon had the ball in the net towards the end but the goal judge flagged for offside.
The win extends Skye’s unbeaten run to six matches and they go second in the table although they have played more games than the teams around them.
Marine Harvest South Division 1 Tayforth 1 Aberdour 1
Tayforth missed out on a chance to top Marine Harvest South Division 1 when they drew 1-1 with Tayforth in their match at The Meadows Festival, Edinburgh.
This match formed part of a full weekend’s shinty action, including fixtures and coaching sessions at The Middle Meadow Walk area of The Meadows.
This event was the first of its kind in Edinburgh and proved popular with everyone who took part.
Aberdour had the better of the first half and took the lead through Angus Thorburn on 37 minutes.
The second half belonged to Tayforth though and Brendan Duggan levelled a couple of minutes into the second half.
Bute 4 Kilmory 2
Bute made it three successive league wins when they beat Kilmory 4-2 at The Meadows.
Craig Fisher gave the islanders the lead on three minutes and Robert Walker made it 2- 0 on 33 minutes.
Roberto Zavaroni, back with Bute after a spell with Kyles Athletic, made it 3- 0 on 42 minutes and Bute took that lead into the interval.
Roberto Zavaroni got his second on 69 minutes and this goal seemed to finally spark Kilmory into life.
Ian Robertson pulled a goal back a minute later and Alister MacArthur made it 2- 0 on 78 minutes.
Bute stayed in front though and the win lifts them off the bottom of the table.
Ballachulish 3 Glenorchy 2
Ballachulish were 3-2 winners against Glenorchy in a dingdong encounter at Jubilee Park.
Ballachulish got off to a great start with Alan Clack scoring after two minutes. The ball was played forward to Clark who took a touch before driving the ball home.
Glenorchy were awarded a penalty on 15 minutes when referee Ronnie Campbell penalised a challenge inside the ‘ D’ and Graham Morrice stepped up to fire the ball into the bottom left corner of goals.
Lorne Brown restored the home side’s lead five minutes later. A long ball from the Ballachulish defence was controlled by Brown who took a touch before hitting a shot towards the bottom corner of the goals which found its way into the net.
The home side took the 2-1 advantage into the break but the hosts were reduced to 11 players after the restart. The ball was played into the Ballachulish ‘D’ and keeper Donald Pearce came out to clear his lines but a Glenorchy forward got a touch first resulting in a foul and a red card for the keeper. Lorne Brown took the keeper’s jersey and Graham Morrice stepped up to take his second penalty of the day. Morrice went for power but his shot went high over the bar.
Ballachulish made a short period of pressure count when the ball fell for Alan Clark who got his second to make it 3-1 with 58 minutes played.
With the game now in the final quarter, Glenorchy won a free-hit on the edge of the Ballachulish ‘D’. The Ballachulish defence cleared the ball but Glenorchy continued to pile on the pressure, having thrown their spare man into the forward line, and Kieran Gallacher found just enough time to send a thunderous shot into the top corner of the net to make it 3-2 with 17 minutes remaining.
Both teams created chances during the closing stages of the game but with no further scoring, Ballachulish took the points to go fourth in the league.
Kyles Athletic 2 Col Glen 2
The Kyles Athletic colts and Col Glen drew 2-2 in their noon throw-up at Tighnabruaich.
Neily MacNaughton put Col Glen ahead with the only goal of the first half on 16 minutes. A waist-high ball from midfield found MacNaughton on the edge of the ‘D’ and he delightfully flicked the ball over the keeper into the net.
Conor Guidici drew Kyles level on 63 minutes and Kyle Mcmartin put the home side in front on 71 minutes.
A Jamie MacVicar goal on 83 minutes earned Col Glen a point though. A ball from the wing was controlled by Finan Kennedy and he found MacVicar who tucked the ball past the keeper into the bottom corner of the net.
Col Glen stay fifth, but sixthplaced Kyles are just a point behind with four games in hand. Marine Harvest North Division 2

Lovat P Boleskine P
The noon meeting between the Lovat second team and Boleskine at Balgate was postponed under unusual circumstances.
Maintenance work on the Balgate pitch during the week included spreading top-soil on the surface. However there were stones in the top soil which rested on the surface and referee Scott McNeil ruled the pitch unplayable for player safety reasons with the players on the pitch.
This was the second time Boleskine have visited Balgate this season only for the game to be called off.
Their fixture on the first day of the season was also a late calloff because of heavy rain on the Saturday morning.

Strathspey Camanachd P Strathglass P

Marine Harvest South Division 2 Inveraray 2 Oban Lorn 1
It took two late goals to give league leaders Inveraray reserves a 2-1 win over second placed Oban Lorn as they met for the second successive Saturday, this time at The Winterton.
The sides drew 1-1 at Ganavan a week earlier and this was another tight affair. David Robertson and Kenny Kirkhope were called up to the Inveraray first team and the experienced David MacPherson, Andrew MacMurdo, Scott Robertson and John Smylie were all added to the young Inveraray squad.
Oban Lorn scored a wellworked goal through Daniel MacKinnon on 40 minutes after the Inveraray defence failed to clear their lines.
Inveraray had opportunities to level but they found Brian Logan in inspired form in the Oban Lorne goal.
Inveraray manager Graham MacPherson made a few tactical changes in the second half and brought on the youthful, energetic Coll MacKay. This sparked the Inveraray forward line and they equalised on 75 minutes when Coll MacKay showed excellent movement and made enough space to fire home.
Inveraray found another gear and, with five minutes remaining, captain Allan Cameron launched a shot from 35 yards out which found the net and proved to be the winner.
Inveraray youngster Campbell Watt played beyond his years, turning in a man of the match performance.
This was a second outing in charge of a competitive match for new Camanachd Association referee Graham Fisher.
Strachur 10 Bute 0
