Camanachd 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.
