Camanachd Cup: Newtonmore v Kyles Athletic is tie of the round

INVERARAY, Kilmallie, Kyles Athletic, Newtonmore, Skye Camanachd and Strathglass all made it safely through to the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup quarter-finals whilst Lovat and Glenurquhart and Oban Camanachd and Kinlochshiel will have to replay their ties following the shinty action last Saturday.

Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup – Second Round

Kinlochshiel 0

Oban Camanachd 0

The tie of the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup second round looked to be at Kirkton where Kinlochshiel and Oban Camanachd played out a goalless draw.

Injury ruled out ’Shiel trio Gordie MacDonald, Oliver MacRae and Paul MacRae whilst Oban Camanachd duo Willie Neilson and Gary McKerracher recovered from knocks picked up in the previous week’s draw with Kyles Athletic with the former starting on the bench.

This tie could have gone either way and a draw was probably a fair result as it would have been harsh on either side to have lost out.

Both defences were on top throughout the game which restricted the number of clearcut chances and keepers Scott Kennedy and Gavin Stobbart comfortably dealt with anything that came their way.

Referee Graham Cameron sent-off Kinlochshiel full forward John MacRae for two yellow cards and he will miss the replay between the sides.

Oban Camanachd’s Andrew MacCuish had a great chance to win it a couple of minutes from time but his shot went just the wrong side of the post from around 15 yards out.

With Mossfield hosting Oban Live, the replay will take place at the Taynuilt Sports Field this coming Saturday.

Oban Camanachd defender Scott McKillop will be a doubt for that game after suffering a bad knock to the shin.

Fort William’s Lewis Clark served the second match of a two-game suspension whilst ’More’s Jamie Robinson was able to take a place on the bench.

A powerful Graham Campbell strike gave Fort William the lead with just three first-half minutes remaining.

However, when referee Robert Baxter awarded Newtonmore a penalty on the stroke of half time, Steven MacDonald stepped up to score.

Fraser MacKintosh gave the visitors the lead just three minutes after the restart and Glen MacKintosh rounded off the win when he made it 3-1 on 76 minutes.

Skye Camanachd 2

Kingussie 1

Marine Harvest National Division leaders Skye Camanachd beat Kingussie, second in shinty’s top flight, 2-1 in their 3pm throw up at Pairc nan Laoch, Portree.

Skye were missing full centre Gilleasbuig MacDonald whilst Steven Morrison remained sidelined through injury. Danny Morrison hurt his back in the lead up to the game and was only able to take up a place on the bench. James Pringle returned to the starting 12 after injury.
