Shinty: Kingussie end triumphant season with derby win


Kingussie rounded off a season that yielded three of shinty's four major awards with a 3-1 home Premiership win over local rivals Newtonmore.

Thomas Borthwick scored the opener on the half hour and Ruaridh Anderson made it 2-0 in the second half.

Steven MacDonald quickly reduced the leeway to a single goal with a penalty before Borthwick rounded off in the third minute of stoppage time.

This brought to an end a season where Kingussie have won the Premiership and the MacTavish and Camanachd Cups, losing just three games - the MacAulay Cup final to Oban Camanachd and two league games, both to Caberfeidh.

Kyles defeated Oban Camanachd 1-0 at Tighnabruich to grab the runner up spot from Newtonmore.

Luke Thornton got the only goal of the game just before half time, as Kyles finished four points behind the champions.

Caberfeidh, who claimed fourth, and Kinlochshiel fought out a 3-3 draw in the day's other game.

Jordan Fraser scored early for Kinlochshiel but Craig Morrison extended his season's total to 32 goals with a double when he put Caberfeidh 2-1 up after 20 minutes.

Finlay MacRae equalised early in the second half before Kevin Bartlett put Cabers ahead again and Keith MacRae got Shiel's second equaliser.
