On Monday 14th Oct the first inter-club match of the new season was played between A&A and LOB.
Rink “A” was skipped by Alan Richmond assisted by Alan McHarg and Tricia McKeand. Willie Scott was also due to be involved but as the LOB rink only consisted of 3 curlers he was able to take part in a rink with the Gangrels. Willie can explain! The LOB skip was Duncan McCallum.
Rink “B” was skipped by Alistair Tyre assisted by Linda Wilson, June Richmond and Douglas Haddow. The LOB skip was Peter McDonald.
The first 2 ends in both games were closely contested however in end 3 a four was scored in each match. This was to Alan’s advantage in his game however LOB fought back and going into the last end Alan held a one shot lead. A tight end followed with many stones round the button. Alan was left with a tricky final shot that did not quite come off so LOB scored the one they required to peel the game at 5-5.
The 4 in end 3 of the other match went to LOB. Alistair’s rink fought to get back into the game but LOB extended their advantage to run out 8-3 winners.
An enjoyable game was had by all followed by drinks in the lounge.
