First Sunday update from Aberdeen

This was the game to watch this morning, the sixth round of the Columba Cream Scottish Ladies Curling Championship at Curl Aberdeen. Team GB, skipped by Eve Muirhead, matched up against Anna Sloan's side. The two skips were of course teammates in winning the World Junior Championship last season.

The Muirhead side held a perfect record going into this game. Sloan's team had only dropped a point. So what happened. The youngsters were all over their experienced rivals, pulling out a 7-2 lead after five, and holding on cannily over the remaining ends to finish 7-6 in front!

So, after six rounds, Sloan and Muirhead share top place in the standings. All the linescores and standings are here.

Now, time to celebrate all the second players! Here they are.
