Skye Camanachd throw themselves a premiership lifeline

THE BATTLE to beat the drop from the Marine Harvest Premiership will carry forward to the end of the month following the shinty action on Saturday October 15.

Marine Harvest Premiership

Skye Camanachd 3

Fort William 1

Skye Camanachd kept their Marine Harvest Premiership survival hopes alive when they beat Fort William 3-1 at Pairc nan Laoch, Portree.

Skye boss John MacLeod was on holiday but tuned in to Cuillin FM’s online broadcast of the match from warmer climes.

This was Fort William’s final match of the season and co-managers Victor Smith and Adam Robertson were without Bryan Simpson through work commitments whilst Sean Cameron was also missing. Fort William also had a second team fixture against the Glenurquhart seconds at Blairbeg the same day, so Victor Smith, Adam Robertson and trainer Henry Milne made up the substitutes bench.

After a rain-free fortnight in Portree, the weather turned damp on the morning of the game. The pitch was firm though and the rain was a minor distraction as the bottom two sides in the division took their starting places.

A late Jordan Murchison goal had earned Skye a 2-2 draw when the sides met at An Aird earlier in the season.

The islanders started well in this one, shooting towards the Skeabost end of the pitch, and took the lead after 13 minutes. The excellent James Pringle played in a shy from the left and Kenny Campbell controlled the dropping ball before playing it short to Will Cowie who took a touch at the left of the ‘D’ before blasting the ball into the net, over Fort William keeper Paul MacK-ay’s left shoulder, to make it 1-0.
