Stuart Cup won by Orkney for only second time in 20 years
Shetland lost the junior inter-county competition in Kirkwall at the weekend, going down 207-184 to Orkney.
It was only the second time in 20 years that the Orcadians have won the Stuart Cup, and means the overall score in the annual competition now stands at 33-32 to Shetland.
Orkney made a good start on Saturday morning by winning the netball 41-34, but Shetland fought back to take the swimming 59-35. A 1-1 draw in the football match meant the overall score after the first day stood at 94-81 to the visitors.
A strong home victory in the athletics, by 111 points to 81, meant that Shetland would need to win the final event, the hockey match, by four clear goals. That was not to be, however, as Orkney won 3-1 to increase the winning margin to 23 points and secure the inter-county for the first time in five years.
