The competition was a great success and well organised.

Congratulations go to Ross McCleary and Craig Gudmundsson on winning the Scottish Pairs. They defeated and Brian Thomson & Ryan Asher.

The first Semi matched Lee McCleary & Craig Gudmundsson against Bruce Mouat & Colin Mouat this game went to an extra end with McCleary coming out on top 3 – 2. In Semi two this matched Neil Kennedy & Sheila Kennedy against Brian Thomson & Ryan Asher.  Thomson came out on top when he ran Kennedy out of stone in the last end score 6 – 2.

In the final McCleary had last stone in the first end and was forced to take one. In end two Thomson just picked up a two when he was short with a draw for three. Two great draws in end three gave McCleary a 3 – 2 lead at the halfway point.  A burnt stone in end four gave McCleary a steal of one. Thomson was heavy with a draw against four in end five, finals score 8 – 2.

Thanks go to Gail and her ice staff for working hard to produce good interesting ice.
