Scottish Juniors: Page 1-2 Games

Tonight's scoreboard brought back happy memories of the years before the Free Guard Zone. Five blank ends in the Jay McWilliam v Kyle Smith match, with a place in the Scottish Junior Championship final at stake for the winner.

Not that the ends were always uninteresting. Colin Dick removed three of the reds with his takeout in end five.

Kyle Smith delivers, Kyle Waddell and Kerr Drummond are the sweepers.

Incredibly, there was still no score on the board after eight, but Grant drew the button for a second in the ninth. The teams went into the last with the score at 2-0 in McWilliam's favour. It was enough.

Grant, Colin, Jay and Billy are through to tomorrow's final. Team Smith must now beat the Blair Fraser team if they want to get another crack at the title.

In contrast, the Hannah Fleming team romped to a 6-0 lead before Jennifer Dodds' side got on the scoreboard. Team Fleming then are through to the final, and Team Dodds will now meet Hazel Smith in the 'semifinal' tomorrow morning.

The linescores and all the results are here.
