The Kiltarlity outfit took control of the tie when they went 2–0 in front with Fraser Heath giving them the lead after nine minutes before Marc MacLachlan doubled their advantage two minutes after the break.

In a crazy four minute period when three goals were scored, Savio Genini pulled one back for Kingussie in the 71st minute.

But Heath restored Lovat's two goal advantage two minutes later before Genini reduced the deficit to one with 15 minutes remaining.

But Lovat held on to make their first Camanachd Cup final since 2018 and look to win the trophy for the first time since 2015.

They will face Kinlochshiel who will play in their first ever Camanachd Cup final at Oban on Saturday, September 18.
