A Scott Maciver hat-trick helped Stornoway Athletic to a 3-2 home win over league leading Carloway to blow the doors open on the Lewis and Harris League title race once again.

Carloway had looked in unstoppable form in recent weeks and played well at Goathill against Aths but they were undone by the finishing prowess of the mercurial Maciver.

He netted a diving header, a close range finish and a long range thunderbolt to finally win it for his side who had been pegged back twice by Carloway who netted through Andrew Maciver and Kenny Macdonald.
