Lewis keeper Gra­ham Cay was called into ac­tion on more than one oc­ca­sion be­fore Dougie Shaw put Lewis ahead af­ter 20 min­utes. Ally La­mont’s ini­tial shot was saved but Shaw got away from his marker to score from the re­bound.

David Cleary made it 2- 0 a minute be­fore the break when he ran onto a long ball and he fin­ished in style. When David Cleary got his sec­ond on 68 min­utes, fol­low­ing a re­bound af­ter Dougie Mac­In­tyre’s ini­tial ef­fort was saved, it made it 4- 0 but the goal came against the run of play.

A great long-range strike from Paul Duke went low into the goal to make it 4- 0 with 10 min­utes re­main­ing.

Uist halved the deficit with two late goals. Cris­dean MacRae net­ted fol­low­ing a goal­mouth scram­ble a cou­ple of min­utes later and Uist hit the frame of the goal be­fore James MacRae made it 4-2 on the stroke of full­time.

Lewis Ca­manachd’s Peter Gomez was pre­sented with the tro­phy af­ter the fi­nal whis­tle.
