Shinty: Kingussie extends league record 100% to seven games

Mowi Premiership – Caberfeidh v Kyles Athletic

A resounding 5-0 home victory over Fort William extended Kingussie’s 100 per cent league record to seven games and sent them five points clear in the Mowi Premiership.

Kinlochshiel came third with a 3-0 loss to Oban Camanachd and there was a 2-2 draw between Caberfeidh and Kyles at Strathpeffer.

Glasgow Mid Argyll overwhelmed Oban Celtic 10-0 in the Celtic Society Cup while Lovat reached the MacTavish Cup semi-finals with a 4-1 defeat of Kilmallie.

The shock of the Ferguson Balliemore Cup first round was Glenurquhart’s 3-0 loss to Strathglass at Drumnadrochit.

Savio Genini scored Kingussie’s first and last, with a brace from Dylan Borthwick and one from Ruaridh Anderson in between. Kingussie adds his seven straight league wins to his two cup progress in a so far flawless season.

It took Kinlochshiel’s Keith MacRae over an hour to break the deadlock at Mossfield, before late follow-ups from David Falconer and Archie MacRae confirmed the points.

Craig Morrison gave Caberfeidh an early lead which was canceled by Scott MacDonald. Morrison repeated his performance before half-time and Ross MacRae’s equalizer for Kyles came only four minutes before the final whistle.

Hat-tricks from Mid Argyll’s Ewan Fraser and Calum McLay tore Oban’s Celtic apart after John McNulty’s opener. There were also two from Ally McKerracher and one from Hamish Anderson.

Lewis Birrell grabbed a shock opener for Kilmallie but Lovat stormed back after Duncan Davidson equalized with two more from Fraser Heath and another from Callum Cruden. Lovat advances to the semi-finals against Kingussie.

Strathglass swept away their 4-1 league loss to Glenurquhart seven days earlier when Penri Jones opened in the second minute and added a second just before the 30-minute mark. Scott Douglas got the third early in the second period.

Inverness eliminated Lochaber 4-2, Col Glen won 1-0 at Ballachulish and Bute edged out Aberdour 2-1.
