Newtomore Won 3-1

 

The Eilan side lacked their usual cohesion in the first half on Saturday while Lochaber had come out fighting and showed a healthy turn of speed and confidence hitting without offering much in the way of a goal threat.

Newtonmore's young striker Iain Robinson seemed to have settled nerves when he fired home from close range for the opening goal in the 33rd minute.  However, Lochaber got back on level terms early through Zander Ferguson in the 48th minute when he found the roof of the net from a wide angle on the left from 15 yards out.

Parity was only to last for five minutes when Newtonmore stung into action.  Glen Mackintosh received the ball 12 yards out in an unmarked position.  Taking his time, he fired home an unstoppable rocket on 53 minutes to settle the side.  The home team then seemed to click, especially in midfield, and showed much more strongly, culminating on the hour mark with the best goal of the game.  Glen Mackintosh fired a cross in and Chris Sellar met the ball at chest height and volleyed home on the turn from 15 yards out, giving he keeper no chance, to make it a more comfortable 3-1.
