M.P.KO Final 2013. Inverness Ice Centre
A good game on keen ice that swayed back and fore for the first 4 ends
George Pirie led for the Asher rink with Robbie Cope playing 2 & Colin Macgregor at 3 in place of Ross Cope who was working in Orkney.
Blair Fraser had Tom Pendreigh at 3, his father Mark at 2 and Murray Johnstone leading.
In the first end Asher lay 1 and tried to tap his own stone back to lie 2 but was light and left Fraser a simple double for his 2.
2’s were exchanged in ends 2&3 then in the 4th Fraser missed a strike to leave Asher with a draw for 3 which he made. The Nairn rink then stole a 1 in the 5th to pull 2 shots ahead.
In the 6th Asher’s final draw against 3 came up slightly short to leave Fraser with a tricky strike for 3 or a draw for 2. Fraser opted for the strike but jammed on his own shot stone to give Asher a 3 shot lead going into the last end.
Efforts to keep the end clear failed but with Asher lying 3 and 2 stones to go, Dalcross shook hands and the Nairn rink had the title for their 3rd time.
Third Time for Asher Rink
