Camamnachd Cup first round ties on Saturday

THERE were surprises, extra- time and penalty shoot-outs and all but one of the Artemis Macaulay Cup quarter-finalists are known following the shinty action on Saturday April 29 2017.

Artemis Macaulay Cup - first round

Kinlochshiel 0

Lovat 0

(AET - Lovat won 3-2 on penalties)

Artemis Macaulay Cup holders Kinlochshiel have been knocked out of this year’s competition, eventually losing out to Lovat after a penalty shoot-out at Kirkton

There was a minute’s silence ahead of throw up to remember Lovat’s 1953 Camanachd Cup winner Willie MacLean who recently passed away.

There may have been no goals in this tie but it had just about everything else.

Kinlochshiel hit the frame of the goals on three occasions and whilst Lovat keeper Stuart Mac- Donald produced some marvellous saves, Scott Kennedy in the ‘Shiel goal was certainly no idle bystander.

‘Shiel kept the ball wide in attack and created a number of chances but the Lovat defence was on form with Daniel Grieve outstanding.

There was a good battle between full centres Finlay MacRae and Danny Kelly, who cancelled each other out, although Lovat had more success on the midfield wings.

You just couldn’t take your eyes off the action and the game’s main talking point came on 73 minutes. Lovat passed up more than one chance to clear their lines following a ‘Shiel corner and as Oliver MacRae went into a challenge, Jordan Fraser raced across from the right to send a thunderous shot goalwards. What happened next will be remembered by all those who attended the game for many-a-year. Lovat keeper Stuart MacDonald got his hand to the shot but such was the power of the strike, the ball spun up and over the keeper and looked certain to drop into the back of the net. Keeper MacDonald, by now on his knees, threw himself forwards towards his goal and, with an out-stretched arm, he flicked the dropping ball away with his caman for a corner on the ‘Shiel left.
