TEAM Shetland saw more success in Guernsey this evening with the footballers winning their match against the Isle of Man.
Isle of Man got an early goal in, but Stuart Copland scored with a header in the 32nd minute from a Declan Adamson free kick.
The Manx quickly evened the score again before Sam Maver scored a second goal just before half time, making the score 2-all.
Harry Thomson got in a third goal at 52 minutes, again with good assistance from Adamson.
Earlier in the day, Shetland suffered two defeats in the badminton: team playoffs saw Menorca come out on top with 3-1 and in the placing matches Jersey had one up with a final score of 2-1.
Menorca also beat the Shetlanders 4-3 in the table tennis team group stage, meaning the blues are now at bottom of the group table.
At the evening’s athletics, Bobby Laurenson placed 6th in the men’s 400m.
Connor McDonald also came 6th in the men’s shot put.
