The final cup campaign of the season got underway on Friday evening with Tomatin Utd travelling to Cromdale to take on Grantown Utd. Both teams were under strength but still produced an entertaining match. Tomatin found themselves behind in the first minute for the second game running as Grantown opened the scoring through young Fraser Greenlees. As he managed to slip past Alan Bartlett and knock the ball in low past Garry Stuart.
It was second place against third tonight at Aviemore as RBL welcomed Tomatin to the 4G pitch.
The game got off to an explosive start with the home team scoring within the first minute. It came from a harmless through ball which Jamie Edwards was in control off but his weak back pass to young stand in keeper Duncan was woefully short allowing Rory McKinnon the easiest of chances to round the goalie and walk the ball into the net.
Boat of Garten hosted Tomatin on Tuesday night with the visitors hoping to continue their good league form. The match started slowly with both teams feeling the heat on a very hot night for football. It was Tomatin who took the lead after 22minutes with a well taken goal from last weeks hatrick hero Findlay MacLeod. It came from a throw in which was headed on by Ed MacDonald then controlled by MacLeod on his chest and finished with a neat volley past the keeper.
Tomatin traveled to Cromdale on Tuesday evening with both teams very much under strength due to injuries and holidays. It turned out to be another remarkable game between these two teams as the goals flew in. The first chance came on 7 minutes when a good strike by No; 8???? came back off the post. The opening goal was scored by Tomatin's Murray Fraser when he got on the end of a Findlay MacLeod cross to score past Sellers.
It was back to league duties on Tuesday night and Tomatin were at home to Grantown Utd. The home team were trying to put last Friday, devastating cup game out of their minds but it was Grantown who did all the early pressing as they forced a number of corners and started far better than Tomatin.
