Kettle Trophy Round 1 Results and League Table

Good grief, this is far too early to be curling, surely?  I mean, come on: the grass is still growing; the nights are still fairly long; the golf course isn't covered in snow; the roads are covered with enormous farmy kinds of vehicles that leave huge ruts of all kinds of crap to ensure that the freshly washed cars are turned into mud heaps within nano-seconds of leaving the car wash.  The harvest isnae in and we're freezing in Murrayfield.

It is all too much and I blame the president's husband for the whole thing.

Oh, that'll be me, then.

On with the first round in the Kettle!

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Kesley S                                           5 4 4
Barr J                                     4 5 3      

Actually, tight games all!  Jenny Barr raced into an early lead against Susan K.  Susan got it back to peels playing the seventh and stole a one to win the game.  Well done Susan, Mike Wood, Cruiser Gibb and Maggie Barry.

Big game on sheet 2 between John Steven and Niall Gunn.  Many thought that this was the competition decider, in which case, let's all save plenty of time and award John Steven, Lois Copland (the president's husband's wife - is there not an easier way of describing her?), substitute Laura Barr and Richard Alexander the title for they came through a toothy tussle 4-3.  In truth, they were 4-1 up playing the seventh and last end, so it maybe was not quite as close as the score suggests.

Shona Watt stepped up to skip in Brian's absence, but a four, then a stolen two for Robin, skipping in Dave Munro's absence finally did for her and in the other game, Kerry Clark, nee Barr who was skipping faither's rink in his absence just came up short against Katie, Raymond, Morna and Susan MacFarlane.

OK - them's the scores.  Here's the first league table of the competition.

Position Team Played Ends Shots u/(d) Shots scored Points
1 Steven J 1 4 1 4 2
2 Wood K 1 4 1 7 2

5 Fleming B 1 4 -2 5 0
6 Barr B 1 3 -1 6 0
7 Barr J 1 3 -1 4 0
8 Gunn N 1 2 -1 3 0

All to play for.
