Penicuik met Midcalder in the first round of the competition on Sunday afternoon (9 Dec). The Penicuik team was skipped by Andrew Lambie, with Dave Anderson, Jim Ramsay, and Ken Hunter at Lead (an eleventh hour Sub for an unwell Dave Carr).
Midcalder applied considerable pressure in the opening two ends and only well judged final shots by our Skip held them to singles. Penicuik rallied in the third end to take a two, then Midcalder worked a single in the four end to go 3-2 up. Penicuik tied the game with a single at the fifth, and went on to steal a two at the sixth, followed by a single at the seventh to end up winners 6-3.
A good game for us, played in the appropriate spirit by both sides. Penicuik will meet Corstorphine in the next round on Sunday 6 January (12.00pm).
