Province League Div II – 2015/16 Game 2

Monday 19th 21:30 Penicuik V’s Watsonians

The second game of the season took place against Watsonians. They finished second last year and decided to refuse promotion to Division 1 – preferring to stay in Division 2. 

The team  got off to a good start taking the first 3 ends against the hammer. This was mainly due to John and Iain setting up good heads which we were able to consolidate into a 4 shot lead. We lost a single in the 4th end but came back in the 5th with a single thanks to a fine hit and roll which froze against the opposition stone fully protected by a bank of guards. In the 6th end we took two shots against the hammer but lost a single in the last end resulting in a satisfying 7 shots to 2 victory.


A very enjoyable game played on fast swinging ice.
