Inside the first minute 'More went ahead, Danny from the right fired the ball into the top corner, great goal, 'More continued to put pressure on the Lochaber defence but once again failed to convert the many chances created and paid for this when Lochaber equalised, a fast break down their left side had the 'More defence in trouble and Stuart Calliison pushed the ball past the stranded Mike Ritchie and into the net.From the restart ;More pushed forward again and 5 mins later the on form Danny Macrae made it 2. Half time 'More 2 Lochaber 1.
The second half saw Lochaber in search of another goal and they caused some problems for the 'More defence but could not get their 2nd goal, 'More gradually took control of the centre and had Lochaber pinned back for long spells, a double substitution saw Calum and Blair being replaced by Chris Sellar and John MacKenzie, in the 75th min Danny completed his hat trick with another well worked goal at this point it was all Newtonmore with the forward line looking dangerous, good hold up play from Danny saw chris smash a low shot into the net for number 4, we were yet to see the goal of the game, Danny wide on the left held off a defender ,turned and fired a rocket into the roof of the net. Final score Newtonmore 5 Lochaber 1
