Newtomore Lost 2-1
Newtonmore suffered an unexpected
2-1 defeat at the Eilan as Lovat progressed through to the
last four of the Artemis Macaulay Cup with Greg
Matheson getting the decisive
goal in extra time.
The deat was the Blue and Whites first in any competition since last August and is through to be only their fourth at the Eilan in the past decade.
It looked like normal service had been resumed when Conor Jones struck in the 75th minute, but Matheson equalised in the 83rd minute before netting the winner in the 104th.
