Review: Perth Under 17 Slam
The High Road final saw Craig Joiner’s Forfar team up against Angus Shearer’s Waterfront team. A score of 3 in the 6th put Craig’s team 7-3 ahead and proved too much to come back from; final score 7-4. Craig Joiner ages out of U17s so was particularly pleased with his win. His team pictured L-R: Bruce Keillor, Euan MacDiarmid, Craig Joiner, Craig Paterson,
Forfar was also represented in the Low Road Final with Hailey Duff’s girls team meeting James Carswell’s boys team. The game was closely contested until the 6th end when James took a 3 followed by a steal of 2 in the 7th to conclude the game at 9-5.
Team Carswell L-R – Craig Barr, James Carswell, Grant Barr, Ryan Peters
Throughout the season, teams have been accumulating points at the Slam events; the top 3 results are added together and the overall winners as well as the top girls’ team receive places at the WCF Junior Camp in Germany this summer, a coveted prize provided by The Royal Caledonian Curling Club which includes team flights, camp entry fees and accommodation.
Congratulations to Ross Whyte, Bobby Lammie, Neil Topping & Euan Kyle who are this season’s U17 Slam winners and who will go onto represent RCCC at the WCF Camp. Ross is the youngest winner of the U17 Slam to date at just 14 years of age. The winners are pictured right receiving their trophy from David Hay.
