Midlothian met Dundee & District Province on Sunday afternoon (24 Feb) at Murrayfield in the Waldie Griffith. The four rinks representing Midlothian were Carrington, Clydesdale Bank, Midcalder, and Penicuik. Penicuik skipped by Andrew Lambie, with Dave Anderson, Jim Ramsay, and Ken Hunter, was drawn against Dundee University.
Penicuik took first blood with a four in the opening end. A slightly heavy final draw in the second end from our opposition caught a front stone and deflected to just beat three Penicuik counters. Penicuik took a single in the third end, and followed it up with another four in the fourth end. Dundee came back in the latter stages of the game to reduce their deficit from 8 shots to 3 shots (final score 9-6).
Overall Midlothian ran out winners by 50 shots to 16 shots, an average of +8.5 shots up. It remains to be seen if this will be sufficient for MIdlothian to retain the trophy won in 2017-18.
