Midweek football: Sleat top after Portree held to a draw

Sleat and Strath moved two points clear at the top of the Skye and Lochalsh League table after a 7-0 thrashing of Kyle on Tuesday evening.

Youngster Josh Knowles grabbed a double, with Callum Mattinson, James Munley, Ben Yoxon, Gordy McCarroll and Calum MacRae also on target for the defending champions.

Portree slipped to second after being held to a 2-2 draw against North West Skye.

Twice Allan ‘Ginger’ MacKinnon put the hosts ahead, but an own-goal and a strike from Iain MacCusbic earned North West a share of the spoils.

Kyleakin are level in second spot after second-half goals from Gavin Finnie and Stuart Gillies helped them win 2-0 at GA United.
