Cup action and change at top of premiership

Artemis Macaulay Cup quarter-finals

Kyles Athletic 5 Glasgow Mid Argyll 0

Kyles Athletic are through to the Artemis Macaulay Cup semi-finals after beating Glasgow Mid Argyll 5-0 at Tighnabruaich.

Kyles Athletic welcomed Andrew King back into their squad after injury, which is a boost ahead of this coming weekend’s Camanachd Cup quarter-final tie at home to Lochaber.

GMA’s resources were stretched and they travelled with just 13 players. They were without the banned John McNulty, the injured Brian Slattery and Euan Murray, as well as Mark Bain.

Kyles’ class told and Gordon Whyte scored on 12 and 15 minutes to put his side 2-0 ahead. Sandy MacKenzie added a third on 31 minutes.

Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup – semi finals

Glenurquhart 1 Kingussie 2

The Kingussie reserves edged out Glenurquhart reserves 2-1 at Bught Park to reach the 2016 Aberdein Considine Sutherland Cup Final.

Kingussie had the wind advantage in the first half and they went 1-0 ahead through Roddy Young after 25 minutes.

Glen’s James MacPherson was proving a handful against Kingussie’s Rory Fraser though and he went close on more than one occasion.

There were chances at the other end too with Kevin Thain passing up a couple of opportunities.

Kingussie went 2-0 ahead against the run of play on 70 minutes with Kevin Thain scoring.

Referee John Wood awarded Glenurquhart a penalty five minutes later when Kings’ keeper Robert Shiells was adjudged to have fallen on the ball. James MacPherson hit a low spot-hit which was saved by the keeper but Calum Smith bundled the rebound into the net to make it 2-1.

Kingussie did enough to deserve the win though, creating the better chances in the game.

Tayforth 0 Newtonmore 7

The Newtonmore seconds were too strong for Tayforth, winning 7-0 in their 1pm throw up at Silver Sands.

Three early goals had ’More in control as Darrin Fowler on two minutes, David Cheyne on four minutes and Craig MacLeod on six minutes had them 3-0 ahead.

A second goal from Darrin Fowler on 16 minutes and likewise from David Cheyne three minutes later made it 5-0 and ended the tie as a contest.
