A veritable squadron of Leòdhasaich took to the Minch on Saturday 3 June to attend the Far North Sixes, run by Kinlochbervie. We had three teams in the Under 14 section – a very promising number adn they did themselves proud. Glengarry A won the tournament but all our sides showed up well, scoring goals and winning games.
Camanachd Leòdhais Blues came out best of our squads, with four wins, and two defeats, coming third behind KLB Juniors on goal difference alone. CL Blacks edge out Glengarry B for fifth place by virtue of scoring one goal more, whilst CL Yellows matched the Blacks’ scoring and defensive record but were unlucky to only yield 1 draw.
A cracking day, thank you to all the parents and coaches for their support, and congratulations to Kinlochbervie on another successful tournament on their tenth anniversary. A revived Lochbroom saw off Lochcarron to win the senior section, which also featured KLB, Caithness and Strathglass Ladies.
Back home in Lewis, the first team were happy to finally have the first home game of the season, although the 11-1 score to a strong visiting Lochaber side after only one game in ten weeks was probably not the result we were looking for. The result was however put into perspective with the minute silence before the game which was held for Eilidh MacLeod of Barra and the victims of the Manchester Bombing, and Duncan Rodger of Kilmallie Shinty Club, who both passed away at a young age recently. Our thoughts go to their family and friends
