In the second round of games in the Moray Province League Division 3 there were big wins for Owen Watson’s Juniors and Bob Stewart’s Elgin and a dramatic draw between Elgin’s Helen Downey and Ballindalloch’s Gordie Kennedy. Meanwhile,Charlie Watt jnr and his Forres team are still unbeaten on the ice since season 2018/19.
Owen Watson’s 14-1 defeat of Lynn Robert’s rink was down to a mixture of skill on the part of the Juniors and the fact that Lynne’s team were having their first competitive outing of the season. After a single shot against them at the first end,the Juniors were simply unstoppable, racking up multiple shot scores to run out convincing winners.
Bob Stewart went one better than the Juniors in a 15-2 rout of Linda Hardie’s Forres team. The Elgin front end were relentless in setting up Rob Stenton at third and Stewart himself,as the Elgin rink ran up counts of 3 in 5 different ends.
The night’s real excitement came as Gordie Kennedy, trailing by 2 going into the final end needed all his experience and guile to conjure up his deuce for a thrilling 7-7 peel with Helen Downey.
Forres’s Charlie Watt jnr did just what Charlie always does and won 9-2 against Georgia Clarke’s Moray Juniors team. 7-0 up after 4 ends allowed the Forresians to ease into a solid 9-2 win.
