Thurso vs Orkney - Times Cup semi-final (1-1 aet, Orkney win 5-4 on pens)

Orkney beat Thurso in the semi-final of the Northern Times cup at the Dammies today. Orkney went into the lead and Thurso drew level late in the 2nd half when Steven Morris scored. Extra time was stalemate despite Orkney having a man sent off.

Orkney won the penalty shoot out 5-4.

The Halkirk vs Golspie cup final in Helmsdale was postponed 5 minutes before kick off, due to very high winds. The corner flags were bent over and were nearly touching the ground!

Wick Academy beat Rothes 7-0 in Rothes, with Gary Weir scoring 5.
Caithness RFC beat Mackie 15-13 (away)
Last night, the Caithness RFC Ladies U18s beat Oban 55-5 to win the Shield final at BT Murrayfield.

Caithness RFC U18s Ladies vs Murrayfield Wanderers (10-26)

Caithness RFC U18s Ladies played Murrayfield Wanderers in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup and just lost out 10-26 to the reigning champions, who have 8 players in the Scottish national squad.  The young greens played a blinder in the first half and scored 2 tries (Jade Sinclair and Caitlin Harvey), the same as the Wanderers, but trailed 14-10 at half-time.

Caithness were under the cosh for the whole of the 2nd half, but only conceded 2 more tries with some brilliant defending. Caithness play at BT Murrayfield this Friday in the 3rd and 4th place play-off.
