Another successful shinty season draws to an end

THE FINAL fixtures in a busy 2016 senior shinty calendar took place last weekend.

However, there is plenty going on behind the scenes as clubs begin their preparations for the year ahead.

Marine Harvest North Division 2

Lochaber 5

Kilmallie 0

Braces from brothers Danny Delaney and Ben Delaney and an Ian Fyfe goal gave the Lochaber seconds a 5-0 win over the Kilmallie second team in their 1.30pm throw-up at Spean Bridge.

Kilmallie had been handed walk-overs in their last two matches and both teams were keen for this derby to go ahead.

Lochaber went in front courtesy of a neat goal. Danny Delaney played a one-two with Ben Delaney before finishing with a low, hard drive into the bottom corner of the net.

The home side doubled their advantage when Ben Delaney played a clever ball to Stuart Matheson and he slipped the ball to Danny Delaney who crashed a shot into the top corner of the net on his back-hand.

Ben Delaney got in on the act to make it 3-0. Having gathered the ball with his back to goal, some clever movement from Delaney saw him get away from the clutches of Kilmallie fullback Craig MacIsaac and rifle the ball home from around the penalty spot.

Ben Delaney’s second and Lochaber’s fourth goal of the game came following a well-rehearsed set-piece. Danny Delaney rolled a free hit to his older brother who smashed the ball home to make it 4-0.

Lochaber’s Iain Fyfe had moved forward from wing back and when a long ball into the danger area came off a defender’s stick and landed to Fyfe around 10 ten yards from the ‘D’, he showed great composure and passed the ball into the net for Lochaber’s fifth goal of the game.

Kirsty Delaney was unlucky not to add her name to the Spean Bridge side’s scoresheet after getting herself into some great positions, with one of her strikes coming back off the post.
