    Monday 13 May 2019 - Scott Cup
Ann Grant has already taken a two point lead after just two rounds of the Scott Cup! Ann was a winner for the second week in succession, joined on this occasion by Elma McInnes and Dean Dobbs. They scored twelve shots over the opening two ends against Brian Caldwell's novice team, and went on to win eleven of their sixteen ends.

Half a dozen shots scored at the fifth end put John Matthews ahead of Stuart Robertson, and he stayed there.

Sam Morrison was in control for most of his match with Derek Sobey. However, he had to win the final three ends after Derek started to get close.

A fantastic shot by Louise Morris at the penultimate end to prevent losing a six to Alex Porter ensured that she won the tie which she dominated.

Sandy Burgess staged a great comeback, scoring ten shots over the final four ends to defeat Harry Sutherland. Harry had led 15-6 after twelve ends.

Brian Riddell led Jim Ross 15-7 with five ends to play. A great fightback from Jim ended the match in a stalemate.


D Dobbs 30, B Caldwell 8; J Matthews 17, S Robertson 10; S Morrison 15, D Sobey 9; L Morris 16, A Porter 11; A Burgess 16, H Sutherland 15; Jim Ross 16, B Riddell 16.
