 In the first round of the Lymphoy Cup on Friday night, Robin Copland and his merry women took on the Fleming-less Mike Wood and his team; a combination of some admittedly good play from Pauline, Morna and Shona and a couple of lucky rubs at opportune times enabled them to sit pretty at the top of the table after a six ends to two win and a 10-5 scoreline.

Mike would never forgive me if I did not mention a brave and well-executed shot in the eighth end with his last stone; he came through the narrowest of narrow ports and played a great promoted take out to lie three.

Susan Kesley was helping herself to similar largesse from Andrew Barr - one of my earlier tips for glory; sorry Andrew! - with a useful five ends and a 10-8 scoreline.

Defending skip Andrew Galloway won only three ends in his match against John Steven, but came away with two points and a winning score of 8-6 and finally Katie Wood just had the better of Jenny Barr - again the losing skip winning more ends than the victor.

So the table looks like this.

Position Team Played Ends Shots u/(d) Shots scored Points
1 Copland 1 6 5 10 2
2 Kesley 1 5 2 10 2
3 Galloway 1 3 2 8 2
4 Wood K 1 3 1 8 2
5 Steven 1 5 -2 6 0
6 Barr J 1 4 -1 7 0
7 Barr A 1 3 -2 8 0
8 Fleming 1 2 -5 5 0

 All to play for and three out of the four games got their eight ends in - a good start to the competition!
