Scottish: Men Tiebreak 1

David Murdoch and his team, Scotland's representatives at December's European Championship, have been eliminated from this year's Co-operative Funeralcare Scottish Men's Curling Championship in a tiebreaker.

Against his old teammates - Ewan MacDonald, Graeme Connall, Pete Loudon and Euan Byers - Murdoch with Glen Muirhead, Ross Paterson and Richard Woods, went into the tenth end all square, with last stone advantage. Ewan corner froze a Murdoch counter at the edge of the four foot behind cover, leaving David to draw the tee for the win. He was inches heavy.

Team MacDonald now plays the Jay McWilliam side in the second tiebreaker on Saturday morning.
