Scottish Mixed Championship: Sunday 1

Well, we might all be having sleepless nights following Eve Muirhead's progress in Swift Current, but other Muirheads were in action today in the quarterfinals of the Scottish Mixed Championship at Curl Aberdeen. Indeed, they were involved in what was the 'big' game of the quarters against the Duncan Fernie team.

Above, Gordon Muirhead discusses with his son Glen options in the third end.

Glen plays last stones for the team. Karen Addison was throwing third, and Anna Sloan was at lead.

Duncan Fernie was skipping last year's winning team of Michelle Silvera, Colin Campbell and Lynn Cameron. With Tom Brewster they won the Euro Mixed title in Prague.

Here's the Fernie team, Lynn, Colin and Michelle.

I should say who won! The linescores are here. Fernie's side progressed to the semis!

Colin Dick, Hannah Fleming, Billy Morton and Alice Spence came through against Jay McWilliam, Lauren Gray, Struan Wood and Rhiann Macleod.

David Edwards (above), Claire Perras, Dillan Perras and Louise Wood were on top of John Hamilton, Alison Black, Colin Morrison and Jennifer Morrison - good to see some of these names back on the ice again!

Paul Stevenson, Louise Soutar, Fraser Watt and Rosemary Arkley edged Steven Eddie, Maggie Wilson, Andrew Dolman and Rachel Henderson.
