SKYE 3 – LOVAT 4

The last pre-season friendly, was a hard fought game in wet conditions away to Skye in the Thomas Ferguson Memorial Cup.

Lovat started well, and played some good shinty, with Greg scoring within 5 minutes, however Willie MacRae’s Skye dug in and seemed to adapt themselves better to the conditions- equalised and then raced to a 3-1 interval lead.

A determined Lovat emerged for the second half,and  the players showed good character in pulling Skye back ,equalising and finally taking the lead with a further goal from Greg and 2 from Frosty. The team then held firm and kept the Skye attack at bay until the final whistle blew and the cup was retained.

Best wishes to Willie and his team for the coming season, and a big thank you to them for inviting us to participate in this special event in memorium of their former player.
