Unders & Overs entertains at Stranraer
Gail Munro successfully defended her Unders & Overs title with a win over Vicki Adams in the final of a well contested and entertaining event at Stranraer Ice Rink on 6th and 7th October.
2 Sections of 6 teams played 5 games each with the top of each section playing in the final and the second in each section playing for 3rd and 4th place.
In Section A, Vicki Adams, Stranraer played Fiona Hardie, Dumfries in the 5th game for top spot in the section. Fiona was leading 4-3 but Vicki and her team of Kate Adams, Kerry Adams and Lauren Morgan managed to pull back a 3 in the last end winning 6-4. Marion McDonald, Lanarkshire played Jackie Craig, Lanarkshire for second place winning 3-1.
In Section B, Gail Munro, Stranraer, and her team of Debbie Torbet, Katie Wright and Robyn Munro won all their games going through uncontested to the final. Gwen Prentice, Kelso and Ann Marie Davidson, Perth both had 6 points going into their last game of the section. Gwen was beaten by Jenny Bain, Edinburgh and Ann Marie Davidson beat Maureen Parker, Stranraer and so Ann Marie claimed second spot.
In the Final, Gail Munro and Vicki Adams had a game of nip and tuck with some precision shots. They went into the last end peels. Gail’s last draw to guard her shot bounced a little too far leaving her own shot exposed. Vicki put on a little weight with her last stone to replace Gail’s shot but ran out leaving Gail the victor with a final score of 4-3 to Gail.
In the 3/4 place game, Ann Marie Davidson got off to a good start against Marion McDonald and was 3-1 up going into the last end. Marion had a chance to tap up a split for a 2 with her last stone but was just a little heavy leaving Ann Marie a 2. Ann Marie Davidson won with a final score of 5-1.
In the 12 teams who competed there were various mother and daughter combinations. Robyn Munro, just 9 years old in September, played with her Mum Gail throughout the competition. She was a very steady lead and in the final managed a double take out in the 3rd and 4th end. Robyn is the youngest player to have taken part in this competition.
Ann Marie Davidson’s rink was also a family affair with Liz Paul playing second with her daughters playing lead and third. Marion McDonald also had her daughter Heather playing with her and Team Adams consisted of mother Kate with daughter Vicki and niece Kerry.
Jenny Bain, RCCC Ladies President presented the trophy and prizes to Team Munro (pictured). Jenny said ‘ This was a thoroughly entertaining competition both on and off the ice’. Jenny thanked all involved and hoped they would all be back next year.
