“Bikini Bottoms” come out top in Uist’s Astro Cup

The winners of the Uist and Barra Astro Cup were Bikini Bottoms, who defeated Saints 5-4 on penalties after extra time in the final last week.

In the semi-finals Bikini Bottoms beat the young Uist and Barra junior side Druimnadrochid 1-0 and Saints defeated Still Game — Cherry MacAulay’s over-30s — 2-1 after extra time.

A total of nine teams took part in the competition, played on the astroturf pitch at Sgoil Lionacleit.
Special mention goes to the juniors, who went through the tournament unbeaten until the semi-finals.
