Regular readers will know that Team Whyte, pictured below (thank you to Tom Brydone, who took the picture and has kindly let us use it on the website) were coming off a great win at the Greenacres U21 competition. They were involved this weekend in a titanic

struggle against their rivals, Team Bryce. Seemingly in control of the match in the early stages, there was a little bit of confusion when the bell went during the seventh end. The umpire confirmed that the final was to be played over eight ends, after which the score was peeled and Team Whyte took the hammer down the extra. Ross's last-stone hit and stay rolled agonisingly outside the Bryce counter and that was that. Not a bad start to the season though for the boys - winners and runners-up in the two competitions played to date. All looking very impressive.
Meanwhile in the ladies competition, the U17 team Davie impressed everyone by making it all the way through to the final of this big and prestigious junior competition. Again thanks to Tom Brydone for letting us use his picture of the girls after their final.

A big three-end score in the second end calmed any nerves on Team Murray's side and though Team Davie kept on fighting their more experienced opponents eventually ran out 8-2 winners.
