Updates From the Rink

  • 7th October Match Report

    There were just 3 Division 3 games played this week in the Moray Province East League and all 3 resulted in convincing wins.
    Pacesetter Charlie Watt jnr’s Forres rink maintained their 100% record over the last 2 curling seasons with a crushing 12-1 win over Elgin’s Helen Downey. It seems like the Forres rink haven’t lost since Charlie Watt snr was in short trousers.
    Ballindalloch’s Gordie Kennedy found himself 3-0 down after the opening 2 ends against an inspired Linda Hardie’s Forres rink. The inspiration, however, was quickly doused,as the Speyside ensemble scored at each of the next 5 ends to run away to an 11-3 victory.
    In the battle of the Moray Juniors teams, it was Georgia Clarke’s rink that came out on top. Owen Watson opened the scoring with a single at the first end, but excellent tactics and shot execution by Georgia gave her a 9-1 lead after 3 ends. Two blanked ends followed before Owen picked up a score of 4 to even up the contest, but Clarke counted 2 at the last end for a solid 11-5 win.
    In the West, games were tighter. In Division 1 the Greenwood family with Uncle Neil Campbell had a real contest against Ali Asher. 4-3 down after 4 ends, the current Nicol Quaich holders came back with consecutive deuces and Asher skip Ross Cope could only pick up a single in the last end for a 7-5 Ardclach win.Mark Fraser finished strongly,picking up 5 unanswered shots in the last 3 ends in his victory over Larry Kerr while namesake Ally Fraser’s Ardclach team triumphed over Mike McInnes. A score of 5 at the second end was the decisive blow as the country loons put one over on their townie rivals in a 7-3 win.
    In Division 2 the game of the week saw Jamie Cattell just sneak past Angus Forbes in a real nail biter. Only single shots were traded over the 7 ends as Cattell edged to a 4-3 win.
    Ricky Marwick was 4-0 up after 2 ends against Ian Thomson who fought back to 4-4 after 5 ends and 6-6 after the penultimate end. Marwick,however, kept his cool and a terrific 3 at the last gave the Nairn skip his 9-6 victory.
