Badenoch derby in MacAulay Cup semi final


By Staff Reporter


Newtonmore and Kingussie will meet in the north semi final of the MacAulay Cup after both Badenoch teams negotiated their way through extremely tricky quarter final ties.

In an afternoon of drama at The Dell, Kingussie required extra time to dispose of Caberfeidh after the teams finished all square at the end of regulation time.

Savio Genini’s 12th minute goal looked to have taken Kings through until Ally MacLennan netted in the 89th minute.

Kevin Bartlett edged Cabers in front in the 96th minute but Ruairidh Anderson equalised two minutes later – only for Cabers to go in front again a minute later through Craig Morrison.

With five minutes left Liam Borthwick levelled the score at 3-3 with Genini’s second in the final minute securing Kings’ passage.

Lovat and Newtonmore met for the second time in seven days and again it was Newtonmore who emerged victorious with a narrow 2-1 win at Balgate.

Iain Robinson opened More’s account in the 48th minute with Marc MacLachlan restoring equilibrium just before the interval.

With just four minutes gone of the second half Robinson struck again to book More’s place in the last four.

A 3-1 win over Kilmallie in a derby clash at Canal Park sees Lochaber leapfrog their opponents in to eighth place in the Premiership.

Ben Delaney gave Lochaber a 26th minute lead which was extended by Findlay MacDonald before Liam MacDonald pulled a goal back in the 40th minute. Delaney was on target again in the 71st minute to seal the points.

Inveraray registered their second win of their Premiership campaign with a surprise 2-0 win over Kinlochshiel at Kirkton.

First half goals from ex-Oban Camanachd striker Connor Howe and Alan MacDonald wrapped up two vital points for the visitors, who remain at the foot of the table.
