Shinty Victory. 5th February


Back row; Cameron, Max, Lachlan, Callum. Front row: Ruari (c), Nuan, Aaron

Congratulations to the South Skye shinty team who won the P4/5 tournament in Portree tonight. 10 teams from across the island competed but before now the trophy read Portree, Portree, Portree so this was a major accomplishment by the boys.

The South Skye team had lost the round-robin match to Portree Tigers 1-0.  The final was a superb close match; a brace of goals from Aaron set SS up well but a crucial penalty save by Max Stanicliffe at 2-1 up kept SS ahead.

Stalwart defending kept hearts in mouths and substitute Lachlan Macpherson knocked in a 3rd goal just before the final whistle to seal a well-deserved victory.
