West Linton Challenge Match 2017

The annual match between Penicuik and West Linton was played on Friday 27th January.  As usual it was a competitive but friendly encounter.

Dave Carr, Andrew Lambie, Margaret Carr and Janette Lambie played against Shone Watt, Barbara Watt, Chris McDonald and Ray Edwards; with Liz Anderson, Ronnie Hope, Pam Ramsay and Christine Hope taking on John Dykes, Sandy Anderson, Jan Murray and Mhairi McDonald.
In the first game Penicuik built up a good lead of 6-0. The front end playing very well, leaving the Third and Skip to play guards. West Linton came back with a 3 at the sixth end.
The second game was closer, with ones and a two being exchanged to give West Linton a 5-2 lead after 6 ends.  

So it was all on the last end of the two games!!!  Liz won a single  to make the final score 5-3 in favour of West Linton.  In the other game, Shona was half an inch short with her draw attempt so Dave Carr did not have to play his last shot in gaining a 7-3 win, giving Penicuik overall victory in the match by 10 shots to 8.

We all adjourned upstairs for very pleasant chat and refreshments. Last year’s winner, Jan Murray, presented the glass trophy to Dave Carr.
