The other semi-final was an exceptionally close affair with the game 3-3 going into the last end. Callum Kinnear’s team had 2 stones sitting at the back of the 4 foot, leaving a draw for the win and whilst Ryan’s stone was perfect weight, it didn't quite draw enough and gave Callum’s team 1 shot to win and progress to the final.
The final saw Callum Kinnear’s team on their best form that couldn't be matched on this occasion and the score line finished 5-0. Callum, Duncan McFadzean, Matthew McKenzie and Rory Desmond (all Perth) deservedly won the first leg of the Asham Under 14 Slam.
The 3/4 playoff was a local derby between Dumfries and Lockerbie teams. Ryan’s Lockerbie team of Ellie Hamilton, Natasha Kerr & Angus Naysmith were on form after their close semi-final and finished with a 6-1 win after the 4 ends.
