Shinty/hurling international takes place in Inverness on Saturday

LOCHSIDE Rovers are the Marine Harvest South Division 1 champions following the shinty action on Saturday October 14.

Marine Harvest Premiership Kyles Athletic 5

Glasgow Mid Argyll 3

It was a more low-key end to the season than they’d hoped for but Kyles Athletic rounded off their Marine Harvest Premiership campaign with a 5-3 win over already-relegated Glasgow Mid Argyll.

The match was scheduled for Tighnabruaich but when it became clear on Thursday that the pitch would not be playable, Kyles agreed to reverse the fixture to Yoker.

Kyles Athletic’s Roddy MacDonald was free of his twomatch suspension following his sending off in the 2-1 defeat to Lovat on Saturday September 9 2017. Scotland Head Coach Ronald Ross will be pleased that MacDonald not only got game time ahead of this coming weekend’s Marine Harvest Shinty/ Hurling international against Ireland but that he also bagged two goals.

Glasgow Mid Argyll welcomed Ryan Harrison back from suspension. However, Garry Luke sat this one out for passing through the disciplinary points threshold whilst Euan Murray, Stuart Reid and Iain Luke were also missing.

GMA took the lead straight from the start. Brian Slattery won the throw up and Jamie Mc- Fadyen played the ball on to Seb MacMillan and he drove the ball high into the top right corner of the net.

The Glasgow side increased their lead from the penalty spot on 33 minutes when referee Ross Brown penalised Cammy Keith for a ‘kick’ inside the D. Craig Anderson took responsibility and sent the penalty into the top right corner of the net.

Kyles pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time when Grant Irvine’s ball was deflected into his own net by GMA keeper Robert Dunnings.

Jamie MacFadyen restored GMA’s two-goal cushion a couple of minutes after the restart. Seb MacMillan played the ball through and Jamie MacFadyen, from inside the D, slotted the ball into the bottom right corner of the net.

Roddy MacDonald made it 3-2 just five minutes later when he netted from inside the D.

And it was Roddy MacDonald again on 59 minutes who levelled the contest when he got a second from close range.

GMA, who hadn’t played for three weeks, seemed to run out of steam and Kyles took advantage. Ross MacRae put them in front for the first time in the match on 69 minutes when he tapped the ball home from inside the box.
