First round opponents were drawn on the day using Braehead’s unique electronic draw equipment.
First round victories went to teams skipped by S Henderson, L Paul, A Harvie, V Lindsay and A Reekie.
In the 2nd round S Henderon’s team lost to L Brown’s team but L Paul’s team beat A Harvie’s team. A Reekie scraped through by one shot against V Lindsay’s team.
So the results meant that L Paul’s team would be playing against A Reekie’s team in the deciding game for the winner of the competition.
Both teams were on 4 points with 8 ends, although Alison Reekie’s team were ahead on shots scored.
If the game ended up a draw then Liz Paul’s team would need an extra end to pick up the trophy.
Alison, missed a strike in the 2nd end and this allowed Liz to draw in for a three. The favour was returned in the 3rd end, when Liz missed an attempt on a double, to allow Alison to draw in for Three to lead by Four shots to three but Alison now led by two ends to one end.
This now meant that unless Liz won the 4th end, she would require an outright victory.
Both teams played a hit and roll game and it turned out there were no stones in play when Liz came to play her last stone. After consulting her team it was decided to play the stone through the house, so the team could keep the hammer and go for a “Two” in the last end to try and win the game. Alison’s team got early guards on to protect a stone in the house and despite valiant effort’s from the opposition they held onto win another end and the final score was 5 shots to 3.
