Katie Wood, Mike Wood, Lois Copland and Francis Kennedy win the Glenbrook QuaichA tight game between Katie and John Steven resulted in a win for Katie. A stolen 2 in the fourth end gave Katie and co a three shot lead. John is not one for giving up and he scored a stolen 1 of his own in the penultimate sixth end to make things interesting coming down the last. Some unnecessary shouting from an adjoining sheet caused confusion in the ranks of the Wood team but they won through in the end and secured the runners-up spot and the Glenbrook Quaich.
Meanwhile, on sheet seven (or is that one?), Andrew Barr, Niall Gunn, Raymond Preston and Morna Aitken started off with a bang and were three up on Andrew Galloway, Robin Copland and the injured Joe Barry. They were still in with the merest of shouts - the first thing that needed to happen was that they won handsomely; the second was that Katie and John had to draw their game - preferably with a score of nil-all; oh - and Brian had to lose or draw his game; oh and it would have been helpful if Bob had lost or drawn his game as well. None of which happened, so that was that! Good game though with Andrew playing a nice barrier weight take out in the wings against three Barr counters. By this time, the Galloway team had been bolstered with the substitution of the knackered Joe Barry with the fit Margaret Nicol and Susan MacFarlane had made it down from Dundee in one piece. Long story - don't go there.
Jenny Barr, Betty Gibb, Margaret Nicol (but see above) and Donald Kennedy have not had the best of Lymphoy Cups, to be fair. Tonight wasn't much better and included a seven for Bob Barr, Andrew Cargill, Barbara Wood and Pauline Alexander. To be even fairer, Bob thought he was playing his last double for an eight. See Bob. See maths. All I'm saying.
Brian, Nook, Simon and substitute Gavin Barr were in with the same kind of shout as Andrew Barr (see above). Trouble was that they were up against the wifely and recently fast-charging Susan K. Brian and co did their bit and administered a bit of a doing - 7-2 was the final score. Quiet drive back to Fenton Barns, I would venture. Churchyard quiet - which, knowing the Kesleys as I do, would not be the norm.
Andrew, Robin, Joe, Susan and various substitutes - especially Margaret Jacks and Gavin Barr, went through the competition undefeated. Some tight games - including tonight's, and some luck along the way. That's what it takes though.
