Eve on top

Eve Muirhead played Claire Milne in the twelfth round of the Columba Cream Scottish Ladies Championship this morning. New Team GB alternate Annie Laird was in the team for this one, replacing lead Lorna Vevers.

Here's Annie

Here's Eve.

And here's Annie and Kelly in action on their skip's stone.

So, how did the game go? A three at the sixth gave Team Muirhead a 6-3 lead, and they ran out 9-4 in front. The win gave the team ten wins from twelve games played.

Gail Munro and her team were off this ice first this morning, 9-3 up against Anna Sloan after six. Team Munro now has nine wins from twelve games. Anna stays on seven wins.

Kay Adams and her team were dominant against Lauren Gray's juniors this morning, and the Adams team, with Gillian Howard throwing last stones, moves to seven wins.

Hannah Fleming, once again, had the advantage over her opposition going into the final ends of a game. On the rack this time was the Sarah Reid team. Reid though stole a two at the ninth to tie the game. In the tenth, with the time running out for both teams, Hannah was left with a tapback sqeezing past a guard. She made the shot, it went to a measure. It was the Reid team's counter! Heartbreak again for the Fleming team.
