0 comments, , by , in Sport

Celtic, Delting, Scalloway and Spurs all qualified for senior football’s Manson Cup semi-finals after some fairly tight matches on Monday evening.

The hoops defeated Whitedale 1-0 with another goal from defender Robert Smith while Delting ended Ness United’s hopes by winning 3-0 with two from Ross MacDougal and one from Brydon Mowat.

The closest match of all was between Spurs and Thistle. Paul Molloy opened the scoring for the milkbags in the first half but the impressive Nethan Watson equalised for the jags after the break. It eventually took extra time to separate the teams with Ally Graham and Jordan Webb getting the all-important goals for Spurs.

In the remaining match a resurgent Scalloway saw off champions Whalsay 4-1 at Fraser Park with strikes from Aaron Leask, Duncan Cumming, John Brian Adamson and Steven Umphray.

Meanwhile in the G&S Flooring Premier League on Friday favourites Celtic’s challenge was dented by Thistle in a 3-3 draw. Bradley Mackenzie, Stuart Smith and Gary Teale gave the jags a point with Connor Regan (2) and Bruce Crossan on target for the green and whites.

Delting had a good 4-1 away win over Scalloway thanks to goals from Stuart Lavender, Leighton Flaws, Ross MacDougal and Fraser Hall. Aaron Leask got the consolation for the villagers.
Spurs, also many people’s title favourites, had little trouble in overcoming Ness 6-2 at Boddam. Prolific Connel Gresham bagged a hat trick along with two goals from Sam Ward and one from Paul Molloy. Both Ness goals came from Grant Redfern.

Whalsay indifferent form continued when they went down 2-0 at home to Whitedale, Piotr Drozdowski and Jordan Morrison on target.
