Girls Shinty Tournament

Girls Shinty

The Kingussie Girls Shinty team were at Ardnamuchan recently to compete in a Shinty Tournament. The team played 7 games and won 6 and lost a close game 3-2 to Lochaber so qualified for the Semi Final where they played Portree and Won to Make the Final, a revenge game v Lochaber.

In a hotly contested final Kingussie twice took the lead and with 10 seconds remaining on the clock it looked likely the trophy was coming home but with the last hit or normal time Lochaber pounced and grabbed the equaliser. With this, 5 minutes of extra time was played but with a 3 goal spree in this final 5 minutes the game went Lochaber’s way with a final score of 5-3.

The girls all played brilliantly but the player of the tournament went to Rachel Borthwick for an extremely solid performance. Well Done to all!
