Lochside Rovers and Kingussie make it to Sutherland Cup final

FORT William, Lochside Rovers and the Kingussie second team will play in cup finals this season, whilst Kyles Athletic stay top of the Marine Harvest Premiership following the shinty action last Saturday.

Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup - semi finals

Glenurquhart 0 Lochside Rovers 5

Lochside Rovers reached the Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup Final with a 5-0 win over the Glenurquhart second team at The Jubilee Park.

Lewis Buchanan continued his fine scoring streak with the opener on four minutes. Chrissie MacMillan played the ball long to Craig MacDougall and Buchanan slipped MacDougall’s ball forward past the advancing keeper to make it 1-0.

Craig MacMillan made it 2-0 on 15 minutes with a turn and shot into the roof of the net from 20 yards out on the wing.

Lewis Buchanan got his second on 25 minutes. Craig MacDougall’s shot was saved by Glenurquhart keeper Cameron MacLennan and Buchanan netted from the rebound.

Michael MacQueen added a fourth on 34 minutes when his 40-yard ball took a bounce to deceive the keeper and ended up in the net.

Iain MacMillan made it 5-0 with the goal of the game after 38 minutes. MacMillan went on a run from the half-way line, turning a defender before striking home from 30 yards out.

Lochside Rovers played with a strong wind in their favour in the first half. Unfortunately for Glenurquhart, the wind died down in the second half, but they stuck at it. The closest they came to pulling a goal back was a 20-yard shot which Lochside keeper Cameron Sutherland turned away for a corner.

Under-17 players Craig Easton and Daniel Sloss were best for Lochside who now have a final to look forward to.

Scott McNeil was the match referee.

Kingussie 6 Newtonmore 4

The Kingussie colts came out on top, winning this semi-final 6-4, against Badenoch rivals and cup holders Newtonmore colts at The Dell.

The venue was decided by the toss of a coin. Newtonmore gained an early advantage with Chris Sellar scoring on four minutes. John MacKenzie put them two up on 12 minutes.

Kingussie stormed back though to score the game’s next six goals.

Ruaridh Anderson on 24 minutes and Dylan Borthwick on 28 minutes levelled the tie before Roddy Young fired home on the half hour point to put the hosts 3-2 up at the break.

The same three Kingussie players scored again in the second half as Roddy Young on 52 minutes, Dylan Borthwick a couple of minutes later and Ruaridh Anderson on 64 minutes made it 6-2.

A second from Chris Sellar on 81 minutes and an Evan Menzies goal on 84 minutes made it 6-4 but Newtonmore had left themselves too much to do so the Kingussie seconds, last year’s beaten finalists, will now face Lochside Rovers in the Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup Final at An Aird on Saturday July 29.

Brian MacKay was the match referee.

Balliemore Cup - semi final

Inveraray 1 Fort William 3

Fort William will play Caberfeidh in the Balliemore Cup Final after they beat Inveraray 3-1 at Taynuilt Sports Field.

Inveraray were along the usual lines with Garry MacPherson at full centre, flanked by Ally MacDonald and Lewis MacNicol. Player/manager Ruaraidh Graham and Lewis Montgomery were half forwards leaving Allan MacDonald and Fraser Watt up top.

Fort William’s Alexander MacMillan was out with a hand injury and Lewis Clark was also missing, but play-maker Bryan Simpson was available.

All the goals all came in the final quarter of the tie.
