Leòdhasaich “draw” 2018 to a positive close at Canal Parks

September 27th, 2018 No comments

Screen Shot 2018-09-27 at 23.40.44Camanachd Leòdhais closed out a positive season with a first ever point at Canal Parks in Caol against Kilmallie. We fell behind to a quick Kilmallie 1-2 just after the hour mark, but then Donald scored on 69 minutes then Daniel Harrison scored with 5 minutes left. This left the club 8th in the table, level on points with Kilmallie who still have two games to play with a better goal difference.)

After a difficult 2017, for the club to finish on 14 points and guarantee at least 9th in the table (the late equaliser ensuring Strathglass could not overhaul Lewis on goal difference) whilst also blooding several youngsters is very promising for the future.

Thanks to all players, the management team, the committee, the volunteers and the supporters who contributed to the progress this season. Thanks also to all the visiting teams who took the time and effort to play us in Siabost this year, as well as those officials who also made the journey. We will see you all in 2019.

With the 2018 season brought to a close below is the final scorer List – Donald Lamont matched his highest ever total for the club from 2016 after drawing a blank in 2017 but there were 37 goals scored by 15 players, many of them in their first season in senior shinty.

John Gallagher

The club and all connected with it would like to pass on their deepest condolences to our long-serving player Daniel Gallagher on the passing of his father John last week and whose funeral was held on Thursday 27th September. Several club members and players joined Daniel to pay their respects and show their support during this difficult time.

Leòdhasaich are Five Star V Kilmallie!

The first team got back to winning ways with a fantastic result against Kilmallie at Shawbost this Saturday 7 July.

There was a small crowd due to the Uig Gala Day and the World Cup, but those in attendance were treated to a great Dubh is Gorm performance.

Continuing his great run of form in front of goal, Ally Lamont opened the scoring on the 8th minute, then cult hero Al Reed, who has always been a great shy taker grabbed a goal direct from one of his shy efforts.

Scott MacLeod banged in a rocket from 30 yards for the third on the half hour and the team closed out the first half three goals up.

Kilmallie have a history of great comebacks at Shawbost though, starting the second half on a mission and a Stuart Ross goal on 63 mins had the Caol side believing, but then Donald Lamont popped up to score a few minutes later. Then young Callum MacRitchie scored a cracker of a first senior goal to make it 5-1 and secure the points for good with just over ten minutes remaining

5-1 is the club’s biggest winning margin at home in the league and the third time the club has scored 5 goals to win at home (Lochaber 2016, Strathspey 2013).

Thanks to Boyd MacKenzie for refereeing, and to Kilmallie for coming over. We always appreciate their efforts in sending teams to Lewis.

It was great way to get over the disappointment from last week when the club pushed league leaders Lovat all the way before succumbing to a late goal to lose 2-1 at home. Ally Lamont scored our goal.

Next week we welcome Strathglass to Shawbost looking to do the double over the Cannich side. Strathglass defeated Beauly 2-0 which allowed us to close the gap on the team in sixth.
