Caberfeidh could not halt Oban Camanachd charge


By Will Clark


Oban Camanachd travelled north to Strathpeffer and made it four wins from their last five league matches to go fourth in the Premiership through a 3-1 win over Caberfeidh.

Oban netted three times in the opening 21 minutes with Scott MacMillan, Malcolm Clark and Andrew MacCuish all being on target. Cabers managed to pull a goal back just after the break with Craig Morrison maintaining his remarkable scoring run.
