Rugby team hammer understrength visitors Lochaber
The Shetland rugby team’s revival continued on Saturday when they trounced visitors Lochaber by 102 points to seven.
Sadly the Highlanders were only able to muster nine players for the trip north and “borrowed” three of the Shetland squad so the fixture could go ahead.
Shetland 102, Lochaber 7
One of the stand-outs for Shetland was Iain Goodlad on the wing who proved too fast for the Lochaber players and scored four tries.
Captain Jon Pulley and flanker Stewart Mouat were also among those who touched down for the home side.
The result gives Shetland five important points in their battle to avoid relegation from the BT Caledonia League Division 2 North. They are now on the same number of points as Aberdeen Wanderers, although the Aberdeen team have three games in hand.
Shetland will hope to continue their run of victories when they travel to Aberdeen at the weekend to play against third bottom team Aberdeen University.
