Columba Cream: Draw 5

Thursday dawns and it was four games gone, three remaining in the Columba Cream Scottish Women's Curling Championship round robin. There was a 'bottom of the table' clash this morning, Gail Munro trying to build on their single victory to date. Their opposition was Gillian Howard, Louise Soutar, Judith McFarlane and Fiona Steele.

Judith seems to be exhorting her teammates to greater effort!

Sarah and Kerry, urged on by Lyndsay. Caption = "Men at Work," here.

(Younger blogallies may not see the significance. Check out the lyrics of Down Under eg 'Do you come from a land down under, where women glow, and men plunder..' Or even, 'I met a strange lady, she made me nervous..' Anyway, I digress.)

What happened? Howard recorded their first win. The results are all here.

Hannah Fleming's team went into the match this morning undefeated after four games. They led Anna Sloan by a shot in the tenth, holding last stone. Hannah used it to make a raise takeout for the win. Five wins, no losses!

Last of the competing teams to face the camera. Team Eve Muirhead. Eve lost her second game of the week this morning against Sarah Reid. Here they are.

Please note. They are doing some work on the internet service here at the rink and we are due to lose connection for an hour. If all goes well I'll be back in touch later!
