St Ola and Stromness battle to slender victories

Steven Tulloch and George Low battle for possession during St Ola’s victory against St Andrews.

St Ola and Stromness are 90 minutes away from The Orcadian Parish Cup Final after battling semi-final first-leg victories over St Andrews and Birsay.

Graham Shearer’s early deflected strike put St Ola in front against St Andrews, before George Low replied for the East Mainland side in the second-half.

Kyle Drever’s header squirmed out of the grasp of Fraser Laird — who pulled off several fantastic saves — to hand St Ola a 1-2 win.

In Dounby, a late own goal from Birsay goalkeeper Kevin Spence gave Stromness the advantage in a largely forgettable match.

Neither side created a clear-cut opportunity, however Spence’s own goal on 87 minutes handed the defending champions a slim advantage ahead of the second-leg.

The second-leg ties are scheduled to be played on Sunday, July 22.
