Posted on Monday, April 11, 2016 at 2:01pm
Team C Bryce (pictured right) are Scottish Curling Mixed Champions for the second year running. Cameron Bryce’s team of Katie Murray, Bobby Lammie and Sophie Jackson took part in the Championship at Curl Aberdeen from 8th – 10th April alongside six other mixed Scottish teams.
The last round robin session took place on Sunday morning, with two teams on four wins and one on three – making the results from the final session important in determining if there would be a tie-breaker for the second place in the final. The final draw from the round robin saw a previously undefeated Team Fraser (Duncan Menzies, Rowena Kerr, Blair Fraser, Abi Brown) lose to Cameron Bryce’s rink, final score 9-7, however due to to their previous results they had already been guaranteed a spot in the final. The results from the session left two teams finishing on five wins and one loss, while a further two (Team Mouat and Team Waddell) finished on four wins and two losses, eliminating the need for a tie-breaker game.
The final was a rematch of the final round robin session. Team Fraser had a strong start, stealing a one in the first and forcing one in the second. However Team Bryce came back fighting, scoring in four consecutive ends, with the score 7-1 after five ends. Team Fraser looked like they might manage a come-back after scoring three in the sixth, but then Bryce matched that in the seventh and handshakes were offered with the final score 10-4.
