Columba Cream: Draw 6

This was a big game this afternoon. Team Fleming was undefeated after five rounds. Sarah Reid's side had won three of their five games. That's Sarah calling, Hannah behind, in the pic above.

How did it go? You can find all the results and standings here. It turned out that the juniors were the stronger on the day and it was all over after eight. Hannah Fleming, Alice Spence, Becca Kesley and Abi Brown remain on top of the pile, six wins from six starts!

Jackie Lockhart won her game and her team are on five wins and one loss.

Eve Muirhead and Anna Sloan had a close one, the game tied going down the tenth. Eve had the hammer and used it to draw the four foot for the win. Eve is now on four wins.

The last round robin game is tomorrow (remember that one draw was postponed). Fleming v Muirhead, Sloan v Reid, Gray v Howard, and Lockhart v Munro is the card, with the Sloan-Reid game the important one to decide the fourth qualifier for the page playoffs. Fleming and Lockhart will contest the Page 1-2. Muirhead is already playing on Saturday, but who against? It could be Reid, but if she loses to Sloan there would be a tiebreaker as both would have the same record of wins. Gail Munro is not out of it. If she beats Lockhart and Sloan wins then there will be three teams on the same record for fourth spot. I hope you are all following! The standings are here if you want to check that I've got it right.

Here are a few more photos from the Fleming - Reid game:

Passion from Hannah!

Abi and Alice. "Nervous, not us!"
