The Championship took place at intu Braehead 11th – 13th March, with 24 teams taking part after qualifying from local events.
Two one sided semi-finals took place with both games ending before eight ends had been played. Perth High were on top form in their game against Stranraer Academy 2, and won 10-0 after six ends, while Perth Academy secured their place in the final after a strong 10-3 win against Wallace Hall Academy.
Although Perth Academy won the toss in the final and blanked the first end, Perth High managed to steal a one in the second and force a one in the third. However Perth Academy came back to steal 2’s in the fifth and sixth, securing their 6-2 win in seven ends.
