Lochside de­feat Kyles to win Bul­lough Cup

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Lochside Rovers scored four goals in the open­ing 16 min­utes on their way to de­feat­ing the Kyles Ath­letic sec­ond team 5-2 to win the Bul­lough Cup at Stra­chur­more.

The pitch at Stra­chur­more was in tremen­dous con­di­tion and the short grass al­lowed for good play in front of a good-sized crowd.

Niall Mac­Far­lane moved from the wing to the for­ward line to give Lochside the lead on five min­utes.

Daniel Sloss added two more goals on 12 and 14 min­utes, one of which was the goal of the game - a well­worked move lead­ing to Daniel Sloss ham­mer­ing the ball home.

When Lewis Buchanan added a fourth on 16 min­utes, Lochside al­ready had one hand on the tro­phy.

Such was Lochside’s dom­i­nance, it was 35 min­utes in be­fore Kyles launched their first se­ri­ous at­tack.

Ref­eree Gra­ham Fisher awarded Lochside a penalty three min­utes af­ter the re-start for a push on Lewis Buchanan. Buchanan, though, sent the spot-hit the wrong side of the post.

Lewis Buchanan atoned for his miss on 55 min­utes when he scored from 15 yards to make it 5-0.

Lochside lost cen­tre Michael MacQueen, who had a great bat­tle with Ru­pert Wil­liamson, with a shoul­der in­jury so Daniel Sloss dropped back to the mid­dle of the park.

Lochside brought sub­sti­tutes Scott Robert­son, Keith Bur­nett and young re­serve keeper Dougie Mac­Don­ald on for the fi­nal 15 min­utes.

Kyles Ath­letic keeper Dou­glas Ni­col­son made good saves through­out the game.

Kyles in­tro­duced David Martin who added a phys­i­cal di­men­sion to their at­tack and he scored on 90 min­utes with Jack Whyte mak­ing it 5-2 a cou­ple of min­utes into stop­page time.

Jock Turner pre­sented the Bul­lough Cup to a de­lighted Lochside cap­tain Craig Eas­ton. Marine Har­vest South Divi­sion 1 Aber­dour 4 Kil­mory 0 Aber­dour scored two goals in ei­ther half to de­feat Kil­mory 4-0 at Sil­ver­sands.

Kil­mory’s Sandy Leiper started a four-match ban but Alex Cun­ning­ham was free of sus­pen­sion and went on to have a good game in de­fence.

David Mac­Dougall gave Aber­dour the lead on nine min­utes with the ball tak­ing a de­flec­tion on the way into the net. The hosts had chances to ex­tend their lead be­fore Roddy MacColl made it 2-0 on 41 min­utes.

Aber­dour main­tained their grip of the game and An­gus Thor­burn added a third on the hour with Alex Mitchell round­ing off the 4-0 win eight min­utes from time.

Lochside cap­tain Craig Eas­ton re­ceives the tro­phy from Ca­manachd As­so­ci­a­tion chief­tain Jock Turner.
