The Braeview outfit took less than 60 seconds to take the lead with Callum MacIver finding the net.

But Fort William levelled in the 57th minute with Rhys Kennedy equalising.

But Beauly stormed back into the lead immediately after the restart with Scott Cameron scoring.

Torrin Carins made it 3–1 with 20 minutes remaining as Beauly held on to their two goal advantage until the final whistle.

Beauly will have home advantage in the final when they face Kingussie at Braeview on Saturday, November 13.

Meanwhile the senior shinty season was concluded with a whimper, with the majority of games being called off due to clubs being unable to field a team.

Lovat were unable to field a team for their scheduled clash against Caberfeidh at Balgate.

Glenurquhart’s clash with Kilmallie at Drumnadrochit was also called off due to the visitors being unable to find players.

Kinlochshiel against Lochaber was called off due to a waterlogged pitch at Balmacara.

Only one match took place in the North Leagues with Newtonmore beating Inverness 3–1.

Steven Bellshaw gave Inverness the lead after 25 minutes but Craig Macleod levelled for Newtonmore five minutes before half time.

The hosts stamped their authority on the game in the second half with Tristan Ross and Brodie MacBean scoring in the second half to give Newtonmore the points.

Only two other league matches took place across the country last weekend.

Ardnamurchan and Kilmory played out a 2–2 draw in the Central League while Bute defeated Col Glen 3–2 in the South League.

It has been confirmed that the 2022 shinty season will begin on Saturday, March 5.
