Last week saw the home team narrowly missing out on a draw against Strathspey in Shawbost. Two regular starters, Eoghan Stewart and Innes Lamont were missing from defence and although replaced by experienced pair Duncan Mcintyre and Crawford Mclellan, the team failed to gel and get things going between themselves. The first half ended 2-0 to Strathspey. Early in the second half Lewis failed to convert a penalty when Donald Lamont hit the ball just wide. The home side started to pick things up with 10 minutes to go after a quick ball from midfield to Stuart “Tyson” Campbell put the final score to 2-1.
Lewis hope to improve on that defeat when they take on league leaders Beauly. The Invernessshire side haven’t lost a game this season but if last years games against them were anything to go by, the Leodhasachs will rise to the occasion.
Throwup at 2.30pm as usual, come and show your support!
On another note, 12 members of Lewis Camanachd have been asked to take part in forming an arch of camans to pass the Olympic torch under when it comes to the island on the 11th of June. The flame will exit the council buildings at 6.30am with up to 12 players in strips forming an arch. This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to take part, for more information contact Iain Sinclair.
