Kinlochshiel had Paul MacRae back from injury and he started on the bench alongside Oliver Mac- Rae who has missed the opening weeks of the season as he was abroad. Kinlochshiel were still without Scott MacLean.

Inverness manager Callum McLeod travelled six players light with Dougie Rankin and the suspended James MacKenzie amongst their absentees. James Cameron, Andy Reid and Daniel Palombo were also unavailable. Drew McNeil played at full centre.

John MacRae opened the scoring on 15 minutes when he ran to the edge of the ‘D’ before sending a screamer past a helpless Allan MacLeod in the Inverness goal.

Ali Nixon made it 2-0 on 29 minutes with a tap-in from close range.

Keith MacRae punished a defensive lapse to add a third on 35 minutes and got another a minute before the break.

Kinlochshiel manager Johnston Gill introduced Oliver MacRae for the first time this season at the start of the second half. Young Duncan Matheson also came on.

Jordan Fraser made it 5-0 on 55 minutes. Allan MacLeod had made a save but a scuffed clearance fell for Fraser at the edge of the ‘D’ and he made no mistake.

Captain Paul MacRae played the last 35 minutes on his return from an elbow injury.

Inverness defended well for the remainder of the game, with Allan Macleod keeping out any further efforts on goal.

Kinlochshiel’s Donald Nixon had an outstanding game in the middle of the park.

Beauly 1
