Camanachd Cup Macaulay Cup MacTavish Cup Celtic Society Cup

Beauly 2 Skye Camanachd 4

Jordan Murchison sealed the win a minute from time with a back-hand shot from the left, 18 yards from goal, with the ball going in off the post.
There were similarities to Skye’s Camanachd Cup visit to Braeview Park earlier in the season when they also fought back from 2- 0 down to win 4-2.
Skye stay a point behind Caberfeidh but with a game in hand.

Strachur to host Bullough final
Strachur will host the 2017 Bullough Cup Final against the Inveraray second team.
The venue was decided by the toss of a coin at the Camanachd Association offices, which Strachur won, so the final will take place at Strachurmore on Saturday August 5 with a 3pm throw-up.
The sides currently occupy the top two places in Marine Harvest South Division 2. Inveraray hold a two-point advantage with each team having only three games remaining.
Strachur were given a Bullough Cup opening round bye when the Glasgow Mid Argyll seconds were unable to raise a team.
Inveraray also received free passage through to the quarter-finals where Marine Harvest South Division 1 side Kilmory were their opponents. Inveraray proved too strong, winning 6-1 at The Winterton.
Strachur met Oban Lorn at Strachurmore in the last eight of the competition, scoring five times without reply.
The win set up a semi-final meeting against Kyles Athletic at Tighnabruaich and, after two hours of shinty, the tie produced the most dramatic finish before Strachur won a final spot.
Inveraray’s semi-final task could hardly have been more difficult as they faced Marine Harvest South Division 1 title hopefuls Lochside Rovers at Ganavan. Lochside Rovers were on an 11-game winning run during which they’d only conceded two goals.
Inveraray’s Neil Campbell scored the only goal of the game after 31 minutes. Campbell took his goal well following a move in which all four Inveraray forwards combined to good effect. Campbell finished with a nice half-swing from a tight angle, under pressure from Steven Sloss, with both players having a great battle throughout.
Lochside spurned a number of chances to make their mark on this tie and Graham MacPherson in the Inveraray goal made some fine saves.
Strachur and Inveraray have met once already this season when four-goal Euan McMurdo helped Inveraray to a 6- 0 victory at The Winterton. David Robertson and young Ruaraidh Graham got the others.
The return league fixture is scheduled to take place at Strachurmore the following Saturday when the sides return to the scene of the final with two crucial league points at stake.
Oban Celtic’s Daniel Madej takes evasive action as Caberfeidh’s Blair Morrison clears his lines at Mossfield last Saturday in a National Division game which the visitors won 6-1.
Lochaber won the Ken Ross Under-14 Trophy at the Inverness Sixes last weekend. Max Campbell was named player of the tournament.
Caberfeidh won the Jubilee Shield with Blair Morrison winning the player of the tournament award.
Skye Camanachd Ladies won the Alistair Gow Shield with captain Lorna MacRae named player of the tournament.
