MacTavish and Celtic Society Cup semi-final line-ups decided

MacTavish Cup quarter finals

Glenurquhart 5

Lovat 0

The pick of the MacTavish Cup quarter final ties looked to be the clash between Glenurquhart and Lovat at Blairbeg. This was the second time in three weeks the sides had met and this time Glenurquhart were convincing 5-0 winners.

Garry MacKintosh was back in goal for Glenurquhart whilst defenders Fraser Heath and John Barr also returned. Andrew Corrigan was missing, as were injured forwards Daniel MacKintosh and Callum Smith, so there was a start in attack for Michael Fraser.

Lovat’s Callum Cruden was on holiday whilst Mark Kelly was still out injured.

Glenurquhart took an early lead when Neale Reid won the ball on the right and played it up the wing to James MacPherson who sent a first time ball across the ‘D’. The ball was missed by the visiting defence and Connor Golabeck tucked the ball low into the net to make it 1-0 with five minutes played.

Neale Reid made it 2-0 on 10 minutes. James MacPherson picked out Reid with a free hit 25 yards from goal and Reid sent a first time shot high into the net.

James MacPherson added a third on 35 minutes when he came out to the buckshee forward position to win possession and sent a strike high into the net to make it 3-0 at the break.

With Glenurquhart shooting towards the shop end of the ground in the second half, James MacPherson got his second and his side’s fourth on 73 minutes. This time MacPherson moved out to the right and beat his marker before running in on goal. Lovat keeper Stuart Mac- Donald raced off his line but MacPherson got to the ball first, and steered the ball into the net for a superb individual effort.

James MacPherson completed his second hat-trick of the season in the final minute after he ghosted out to the left before sending a snap-shot low across keeper MacDonald into the net to make it 5-0.

Newtonmore’s Andy MacKintosh was free of suspension and Norman Campbell and Drew MacDonald were also back after missing the league win over Glasgow Mid Argyll. A hamstring injury ruled out Paul MacArthur though and Ackie MacRae was unavailable.

Caberfeidh full centre Craig Morrison was free of his two game suspension.

Glen MacKintosh put ’More ahead on 27 minutes but when ‘Cabers’ worked the ball up their left side a couple of minutes before the break, Colin MacLennan finished off a good passing move when he scored from the edge of the ‘D’ to ensure the sides would go into the interval level.
