Both Kinlochshiel and Caberfeidh will turn their attention to the Macaulay Cup this weekend as the north quarter finals take place.

Caberfeidh will be hoping for better luck this time around against Kingussie, two weeks after the sides faced off in the final of the MacTavish Cup.

Then, Cabers took an early 2–0 lead, but Kingussie powered back to win 5–2 at Bught Park, denying Caberfeidh the chance to get their hands on the trophy for the first time in 85 years.

The two teams also met last week in the Premiership, where again Caberfeidh went ahead early on thanks to Craig Morrison.

This time, though, Kingussie equalised through Roddy Young before the gap got any bigger.

Kevin Bartlett did restore Cabers’ lead, but Young completed his hat trick to continue Kingussie’s imperious form.

Kinlochshiel, meanwhile, will be returning to action against Lovat after their match was called off last week.

They had been due to host Newtonmore, but Covid cases in the ‘More camp forced a call-off.

This weekend Kinlochshiel are due to be at home again against Lovat in their own quarter final.

It will be the second time the two teams have met in cup competition this season, with Lovat ending ‘Shiel’s defence of the MacTavish Cup with a 3–0 victory back in March.

Lovat picked up a league win last time out, holding out amid a late Kilmallie charge to win 4–3.

Elsewhere, Lochcarron are scheduled to go on the road in the North Division One.

After not being in action last week, they will face another club who ended up sitting idle – Fort William.
