Lovat 2 v 0 Kyles Athletic

A difficult first fixture at home against the Macaulay and Celtic Cup holders.

This turned out to be a good performance, especially in the first half where we played some excellent expansive shinty and put Kyles under some heavy pressure. Our reward came  in the 18th minute with a crisp strike from the edge of the box from Owen. Try though we might, we couldn’t add to the scoring in the first half, however.

In the second half, Kyles upped their game and and placed us under a lot of consistant pressure, against which we defended stoutly and showed a lot of resilience. The break away had to come though, and it came with minutes of the match left when Ryan and Kevin combined to set up Greg, who finished with style.

A good start to the season with early points on the board in what promises to be a tight league.
