DAFS Social game

Friday the 18th of February brought an interesting weather forecast with snow expected for most of the day. Thankfully it didn’t fall heavily and we managed to meet at Murrayfield for the DAFS social match. The Penicuik team consisted of Craig Brown, Kirsty McWilliam, Ian Neil and Neil Lackie.

The first end Penicuik had a fairly open draw into the house to score a 5. The 2nd end didn’t go as well, with some well-placed stones in the house from DAFS and defensive guards. Routes into them throughout the end were limited which resulted in DAFS taking a 4 back. From there the scores were tighter but the experience and strength of the DAFS players showed, and in most ends this left Penicuik trying to raise stones back in for shot, or squeeze through tight ports in order to cut down some of the well built ends to get a score.

It was great for Penicuik to get a team involved that haven’t had as much experience in social matches compared to others in the club. There were excellent stones played from all positions of the team!

The match ended with a 12-6 win for DAFS, and afterwards both teams retired upstairs for a drink and a blether before the traditional thanks for the match.
