Junior men's final

Greg Drummond, James Dunn, Thomas Pendreigh and Kerr Drummond had earned their place in the final by finishing the round robin on top of the standings. Glen Muirhead, Scott Macleod, Scott Andrews and Gordon McDougall won the semifinal against Graeme Black's side.

When the two teams met in the round robin it had been Drummond who won, with a scoreline of 2-1 after an extra end. Would the final, with representation at the Ostersund World Juniors at stake, be an equally negative affair?

No. The Muirhead team came out confidently, fired up from their semifinal win. They romped away to a 4-1 lead. When Drummond was just too heavy with his last stone draw in the fifth to allow Muirhead a steal to go 5-1 ahead, there was no way back. Down 7-3 after nine, Greg and his team offered the handshakes.

Muirhead, Macleod, Andrews and McDougall were on their way to Sweden.
