Camanachd Cup – second round

Lovat 1

Newtonmore 4

Holders Lovat are out of the Camanachd Cup after they lost 4-1 to Newtonmore at Balgate.

This was a difficult opening hurdle for the holders, made all the harder by a number of absentees.

Newtonmore had a free Saturday the previous weekend as players and officials attended the wedding of former player Cameron Binnie.

Newtonmore took the lead after just three minutes when Daniel Grieve didn’t connect properly with an attempted clearance and the ball fell to an unmarked Evan Menzies who dispatched a waist-high shot into the net to make it 1-0.

Things did not look good for the make-shift Lovat side at this stage but they went on to have the better scoring opportunities during the first half.

Referee Innes Wood kept a tight grip of proceedings and showed the first of a number of yellow cards to Fraser MacKintosh on five minutes.

A fierce Callum MacAulay shot from distance on nine minutes was excellently saved with his stick by ’More keeper Owen Fraser.

A terrific Kevin Bartlett shot from a tight angle on 14 minutes produced another good Owen Fraser save and the on-rushing Graeme MacMillan just failed to connect with the rebound.

Just 30 seconds later, Lovat goalie Stuart MacDonald made a good save then raced from his line to try and clear the ball. Fraser MacKintosh got to it first though but sent the rebound high and wide of an empty net.
