Glasgow Celtic Society Cup – semi-final

Oban Camanachd 2 Inveraray 0

Oban Camanachd scored a goal in each half to beat Inveraray at Mossfield.

In a stuffy first half, during which Inveraray struggled to threaten the home  goal, Camanachd took the lead on 25 minutes through Daniel MacVicar.

Daniel MacCuish doubled the advantage on 66 minutes, and it was Inveraray goalie Scott MacLachlan who stood between Oban Camanachd and an increased lead.

First he tipped a Craig MacDougall strike over the bar, before Daniel MacCuish saw an effort drift wide. MacLachlan then made a cracking stop to deny Andrew MacCuish’s waist-high effort.

Inveraray 2 Bute 4

Bute came from 2-1 down to defeat the Inveraray juniors at the Winterton.

Bute took an early lead, courtesy of a Robert Walker goal on five minutes. Kenny Kirkhope, however, equalised on the half hour mark from a tight angle.

David Robertson gave Inveraray the lead on 65 minutes with a clean strike after some great defensive work from Graham MacPherson.

However MacPherson then conceded the penalty that allowed Bute back into the game just five minutes later, bringing down Robert Walke. Ian McDonald converted the penalty to make it 2-2.

Bute went in front again with 78 minutes on the clock through Robert Walker.

Ian McDonald got his second with almost the last hit of the ball to make it 4-2.

Kilmory 1 Aberdour 4

Aberdour go level on points with the Kyles Athletic second team at the top of the table after they beat Kilmory at MacRae Park in Kilmory’s second game in five weeks.

Angus Thorburn scored from the penalty spot on 34 minutes with what was the only goal of the first half.

Kilmory made a storming start to the second period with Hal Jones levelling a minute after the restart.

Ruaridh Reid restored the visitors’ lead on 52 minutes and Angus Thorburn went on to complete his hat-trick with strikes on 64 and 67 minutes.


Steven Gilmour forced a good stop from the Aberdour keeper with this fine strike. 06_a21ShintyKilmoryAberdour01
