Ness knocked out of Jock Stein Cup

Ness have been dumped out of the Jock Stein Cup by Harris in their first round encounter.

The Harris team went ahead on ten minutes thanks to an Andy Morrison volley from 20 yards out after a badly cleared corner.

Though Ness had the lion’s share of possession during the game they were unable to create any real scoring opportunities and the visitors hung on to their slender lead to the final whistle.
