Glenurquhart are into the last four of the MacTavish Cup after coming from behind to defeat Skye 2-1 at Drumnadrochit.
Jordan Murchison put Skye in front after less than a minute but Glenurquhart were back on level terms in the 26th minute through a Neale Reid strike. Connor Golabek fired Glen’s winner early in the second period.
They will meet Strathglass in the semi final who beat Beauly 3-2. Jack MacDonald slotted home Beauly’s opener before Strath equalised through Scott Douglas seven minutes later. A penalty award was successfully converted by Douglas on the half hour with 17-year-old Ruaraidh Strachan extending the visitors’ lead in the 39th minute.
MacDonald was again on target for Beauly in the 71st minute to reduce the deficit however Strath held on to their lead to take up their place in the last four.
Beauly Shinty Club announced on Monday evening that they have accepted the resignation of Alan MacRae who has been their first team manager for the last two years.
Kingussie kept their bid on track to lift the trophy for the first time since 2011 when they emerged 3-1 winners over Lovat at The Dell. Roddy Young’s double in the 13th and 15th minutes gave Kings a 2-0 lead with Lovat responding through Marc MacLachlan in the 23rd minute. The scoreline remained delicately poised until the final minute when Lee Bain clinched Kings’ semi final place.
In the Premiership, Newtonmore’s 6-1 win against Lochaber at Spean Bridge elevates the champions to third place. They led 2-0 at the interval through Iain Robinson’s double with the same player netting again in the 58th minute to complete his hat trick. Further goals from Evan Menzies and Glen MacKintosh followed by a Michael Russell penalty conversion took More’s tally to six before Stuart Callison struck a late consolation for the home side.
In the other Premiership fixture, John MacRae’s 53rd minute strike gave Kinlochshiel a 1-0 win over Kilmallie at Balmacara.
