An entertaining start to the season before we eventuallysuccumbed 4-2 to our mainland neighbours.
James Rolfe opened the scoring for Broom with ourselves giving him a generous three deflections to outfox Conor. However Will grabbed the equaliser right on the stroke of half time.
Unfortunately the wind switched completely in the second half which meant we received no advantage at all but we played gamely in the second half and Jamie MacFadyen, who scored the seocnd and forced Dougie into a mistake to score an own goal for the third was the difference for Broom.
Eoghan scored our second to close the gap with around ten minutes left but Ruairidh Hughes grabbed a last minute one to make it 4-2.
Conor pulled off some excellent saves and Gaga was solid at the back, also good to see Dougie and Duncan in top form. Especially good to have Duncan back in Blue and Black.
John Hughes said after the game “So that counts as the cup match as well?”, a sign that Broom were happy to get out of Inverlael with all the points, as well as being a tribute to how far we have come in a year. Great to see the Broom folk as usual and we wish them luck for the rest of the season.
Stompy had to spend a few hours at Raigmore getting stitches, photos are on Facebook if you want. Full report will be in Gazette as always.
