After falling behind to a Stuart Callison goal, Caberfeidh took a 2-1 lead at half time thanks to strikes from Ryan Mackay and Craig Morrison.

Pat Toal equalised for Lochaber midway through the second half before Scotland international Kevin Bartlett scored the winner.

During the match, goalkeeper Ewan Pilcher saved two penalties.

Seven days after being thrashed 8-2 in the league by Lovat, Gorski was delighted with the response of his team.

"I would say it is the biggest win we have had in three years," he said.

"We were on a winless streak of 13 games and thankfully that has been brought to an end.

"After losing 8-2 against Lovat we got together to have a talk and discussed things that weren't working.

"In that game we were playing like 12 individuals but on Saturday we played together as a team.

"It was an issue that was only our third game this year but it is a good result."

Caberfeidh have no game this weekend and are bottom of the Premiership as they will host Kilmallie on Saturday, April 13 in their next match.

Gorski would have preferred a match this weekend to carry on the momentum but he says their cup win has boosted confidence.

"We have always been confident knowing we are capable of going out and winning any game.

"We managed to come from behind to lead and then went to go on and win."

Kinlochshiel are action this weekend when they travel to Inveraray looking for their first win of the season.

The Balmacara outfit were knocked out of the MacTavish Cup 4-1 against league leaders Lovat at Kiltarlity on Sunday.

John MacRae did give the visitors the lead after just 60 seconds.

But Lovat came storming back with Greg Matheson scoring twice to give the hosts a 2-1 lead at half time. Marc MacLachlan and Calum Macaulay scored late in the second half to secure a trip to Kingussie in the quarter final.
