Campbell triumphs again as Nicol slips up.
The final round of the Benromach Moray super league was played at the Moray Leisure Centre on Monday 24th February.
Graeme Govan and David Paterson deputizing for Alastair Maltman traded 2’s in the first couple of ends before Graeme stretched his lead to 8-2 after 6 ends David tried to rally back but could only muster 1’s in the final 2 ends. Brian Cantlay raced out of the blocks and was 8-0 after 4 ends David McPherson picked up 3 in the next 3 ends but Brian score a 3 in the last end to win 11-3. Neil Durno also raced out the blocks to lead Donald Ross 7-0 after 2 ends, Donald scored a 1 in the 3rd end but this was the only shot of the game for Donald and his team. Neil needed to win to put pressure on to Andy Cameron for 3rd Place in the League.
Andy Cameron was trying not to make it a hat trick of defeats on the bounce against Gavin Nicol league leader before the games started. Andy took a 1 in the first end as did Gavin the second end with the game looking like a close fought affair Andy missed a shot with his last to loss a 3 against the head. Gavin then stole another 1 in the 4 end which looked like finishing off the game. Andy took a 2 in 5th end and then stole the next 2 ends to lead 7-5 going down the last. A good end by Andy and team made it a hard for Gavin to get a 3 for the win or a 2 to peel the game. In the end it was another steel to Andy to win 8-5. Gavin needed results on the last sheet to go his way to win the league.
Alan Campbell was joint leader with Gavin Nicol had a tight game against Amy MacDonald in the first 3 ends before Alan raced in front 8-1 after 6 ends which he was made to work hard for. Amy Battled in the last end to score a well-deserved 3 to finish up 8-4 to Alan Campbell.
Alan Campbell is this Year’s Benromach Moray Super League Winners with 16 pts 35 ends, Gavin Nicol 2nd on 14pts 38 ends, Andy Cameron 3rd on 12pts 38 ends and Neil Durno in 4th on 11 pts 37 ends other positions are Graeme Govan 10 pts 35 ends, Amy MacDonald 8 pts 32 ends, Brian Cantlay 6 pts 32 ends, David McPherson 3pts 15 ends and Alastair Maltman 2pts 27 ends.
