The U-14 Ken MacMaster Cup final the curtain raiser to the Camanachd Cup final saw this year’s finalists Skye and Fort William serve up an enthralling encounter with Skye eventually prevailing by 2 goals to 1. Fort William took the lead with a well taken goal by Jack Stephen on 27 minutes, however with 3 minutes left of the first half Skye’s Seonaidh MacLeod equalised with a neat finish to pull the teams level at half-time.

The second half saw both teams create chances but it was Skye that made the all important breakthrough with a moment of brilliance from Ali Stewart on 55 minutes, with his back to goal he managed to play the ball through his legs giving Angus MacKinnon in the Fort William goals no chance. This proved to be the winning goal and a goal worthy of winning any final.
Congratulations to Skye on their well-deserved victory and commiserations to Fort William who more than played their part in a closely contested final.
