DAFS Social Game 7th February 2020
Jim Cowper, Dave Carr, Keith Morris and skip Dave Anderson stepped up for this social game against a DAFS rink of Jill Gillard, Margaret Miller, Alistair Henry and skip David Lindsay.
With last stone advantage DAFS took a single in the first end with Penicuik replying with two shots in the second. DAFS again scored a single in the third with Penicuik drawing their last stone to gain a further two shots in the fourth. Looking good for a steal in the fifth following a well judged hit and roll by Keith, Alistair replied with an unassailable draw to the four-foot resulting in another single for DAFS. They then went on to steal a single in the sixth meaning that we went to the last end peels where, following two excellent lead stones from octogenarian Jim, we gained the advantage coming out overall winners by 9 shots to 4.
There was some very good curling from both rinks throughout a very close game and we thank DAFS Curling Club for the invitation to play in this very enjoyable encounter.
