On Saturday 1 June, Lewis Camanachd sent a youth team to the mainland for the first time in far too long, the destination, Scourie and the Far North Sixes. The games were held on the football pitch at Scourie where in 2010, Lewis Camanachd B had won the open competition. This compeition always has good weather it seems and the eight U-14 youngsters, accompanied by Mr Sinclair and Mr Nally were looking forward to competitive action.
They had a baptism of fire against eventual winners Beauly, who regularly compete in competiitons such as the MacMaster Cup, and Mr Sinclair was certainly of the opinion that this team could have had a chance of winning the open competition, which was won by Kinlochbervie. Beauly ran out 10-0 winners but Seumas MacRae in goals had a great game for Lewis and keeping the score down against a’ Mhanachainn’s classy one touch play.
Next up was a game against Kinlochbervie A . Lewis performed much better in this game despite losing 4-0 against an experienced side, and there was a notable performance by Scott Macleod in defence.
The final two games saw na Leòdhasaich òga get into the groove however with them knocking in 10 and 9 goals respectively against KLB B and KLB C. Unfortunately time was tight so the guys had to leave before the presentation at the end but thank you to Heather, paula and everyone at Kinlochbervie for organising a great wee tournament and
Top scorers for the Leodhasaich were captain Ronan Sinclair with 8 and Craig MacLeod with 6. Lewis finished third in the league of 5 teams. The team look forward to further competitive games in the near future.
Technically Ronan’s 8 goals places him ahead of Will in the scoring charts 😉 We look forward to the youngsters making the step up to the senior team in the near future also. Below are a couple of photos of the guys in their smart yellow strip.
