Six of the best as Lovat Ladies win play-off

AS LOVAT Ladies look forward to their first season in WCA Marine Harvest National Division 1, the Camanachd Association and Women’s Camanachd Association prepare for their respective annual general meetings.

Lovat Ladies won promotion to Marine Harvest National Division 1 after beating Glengarry 6-0 in a play-off last weekend. The ladies are pictured after winning the Challenge Cup earlier in the season.

Women’s shinty: Marine Harvest North Division 2 play-off

Glengarry 0 Lovat 6

Lovat won the Marine Harvest North Division 2 title and promotion to the top division in the women’s game when they beat Glengarry 6-0 in their play-off at Bught Park, Inverness, on Sunday November 13.

There was plenty at stake as the teams lined up for the showdown match after both sides finished their league campaigns level on 16 points at the top of the table.

With Lovat head coach Charlie Mainland unavailable, Fiona Urquhart took a lead role with Gemma Bell, who wasn’t fit enough to play, running proceedings from the touchline.

Lovat took the initiative from the start of the 1pm throw up and proved too strong over the course of the game.

Some of Lovat’s attacking play was a joy to watch and there was some great inter-play between full centre Laura Gallacher and forwards Nikki Grant and Fiona Urquhart.

By the end of the match, Nikki Grant and Fiona Urquhart were both on target, whilst Scottish international Laura Gallacher, who seems able to score from anywhere on the pitch, netted four times to complete the 6-0 win.
