With a 3-3 draw at home to Caberfeidh, Camanachd Leòdhais club marked four league games undefeated in a row, the best run in the club’s history to date, thanks to a Paul Duke hat-trick. Dukey’s hat-trick was his first for the club, Duncan MacIntyre holds the record of hat-tricks with three. Dukey also raced into the lead with the race for the drams, bring his total up to 5 goals with the season not even halfway over, two a head of Donald Lamont and David Cleary.
The draw took us level with Beauly in 6th on 7 points, but behind them on goal difference. The fact that Cabers are still undefeated and actually went top of the table after the game shows how good a point this was. The team they replaced at the top, Lochcarron, visit Shawbost next Saturday and games with the Wester Ross side have always been great occasions in the past. Make sure you come along and support, it makes all the difference as we look to maintain our unbeaten home record.
You can read Caberfeidh’s take on the match here, thanks to them for a great game as always:
The Nicolson Institute Shinty team travelled to sunny Plockton last week to compete in a 6 a side tournament. The school was represented by two teams who competed against teams from Plockton H.S, Lochaber H.S, Portree H.S and Inverness Royal Academy.
They gave a very account of themselves, playing some good shinty in a very sporting manner. The Nicolson more than held their own, winning 5 out of the 8 matches contested by NI teams.
NI Shinty takes places every Friday 14.00 to 15.00, all are welcome.
