KINLOCHSHIEL won the Camanachd Cup for the first time in their history as they defeated Lovat in the final.

Keith MacRae was the hat trick hero for the Wester Ross outfit finding the net three times during the match.

He gave 'Shiel the lead midway through the first half when a poor hit in was pounced on and he fired a thunderous shot past goalkeeper Stuart MacDonald.

But Lovat levelled on the stroke of half time when Greg Matheson fired a powerful shot from a tight angle past goalkeeper Josh Grant.

MacRae put Kinlochshiel in front on the hour mark as he latched on to a long ball from Jordan Fraser to fire past MacDonald from close range.

He then scored from close range in injury time to give the Balmacara outfit the trophy for the first time.
