Southend went very close to causing an upset with an excellent team performance against Barra. Goals from Kevin Morrison and Andrew MacIssac took the game to extra-time, where they eventually lost, however, DA Lindsay’s team played a great game and went close to defeating a strong Barra team on their own ground.

North Uist caused a major upset by defeating the newly-crowned league champions in a incredible match.
