North edge out South to lift Caol Cup

Caol Cup

South U21 1

North U21 3

The North recovered from losing an early goal to beat the South 3-1 in their 2pm throw up at Jubilee Park, Ballachulish.

With Scotland U21 manager Allan MacRae taking a keen interest, the South were managed by Ian MacDonald and, with Callum McLeod unavailable, Lovat defender Drew Howie looked after the North squad.

Oban Celtic’s Ally McKerracher captained the South with Lovat’s Michael MacKenzie captaining the North.

The South got off to a great start when Daniel MacVicar put them ahead after just a couple of minutes. MacVicar capitalised on a slip in the home defence to crash a backhand shot into the roof of the net to make it 1-0.

The closest the North came to a first half leveller was a Charlie MacDonald strike which came back off the crossbar.

The second half was just 10 minutes old when Craig Morrison pulled the North level. Morrison was first to react to a rebound and he just managed to tap the ball home to make it 1-1.

Two goals from Charlie Mac-Donald late in the match gave the North the win. MacDonald put the North ahead for the first time in the match on 77 minutes when he got onto a cutback to send a low backhand drive into the net to make it 2-1.

Inverness forward Mac-Donald sealed the win on 81 minutes to ensure the North retained the Caol Cup.

Inveraray’s Lewis Montgomery suffered a hand injury in the match which could rule him out for the rest of the season.

North U21 captain Michael MacKenzie was presented with the Caol Cup by Camanachd Association Director Keith Loades.

The match was useful preparation ahead of the Shinty / Hurling international between Scotland U21 and Ireland U21 at the Bught Park, Inverness on Saturday 22 October 2016.
