Review: Forfar Under 17 Slam
Posted on Friday, January 4, 2013 at 2:19pm
22 teams from around Scotland arrived at Forfar Indoor Sports on December 27th 2012 all ready for the next round of the Under 17 slam.
The knock out stages produced some great quality curling and some surprises as well. The High Road final saw David Baird battle it out against Robin Brydone where the lead changed from one team to the other. The final end was a nail biter where Robin and team had to draw to the button to secure the win but was fractionally heavy which gave David Baird and his team the steal of 2 and the win. Winners pictured right: Callum McLean (Lead), Gavin Barr (2nd), James Baird (3rd), David Baird (Skip).
The Low Road was just as good a game as the High Road. Neil Sutherland and his team started off strong but let Callum Macfarlane back into the game at the half way point. Team Sutherland dominated the second half of the final and ran out 8 4 winners. Low Road winners pictured right: Fraser Morton (Lead), Stewart Shaw (2nd), Callum Potts (3rd), Neil Sutherland (Skip).
