Scottish semis

So, who's going to be the other finalists?

Kelly Wood and her team of Jackie Lockhart, Lorna Vevers and Lindsay Wood matched up against Mairi Milne, Edith Loudon, Katie Loudon and Judith Marshall. Not a lot between the teams as they went into the half time interval 3-3. A real guddddly eighth end saw Kelly pick up two and a 6-4 lead. It was enough. The Loudon team took a single in the ninth and when Mairi failed to get hidden with her last stone in the tenth, Kelly had a straightforward hit to win.

The linescore is here. It will be a rematch Wood v Munro in the televised Columba Cream final tomorrow morning, 10.30 am. Vernon beckons for the winners.

Tom Brewster, Hammy McMillan, Ron Brewster and Colin Campbell faced Warwick Smith, Craig Wilson, David Smith and Ross Hepburn. A high quality game as the CurlingZone stats showed. Cut to the eighth and Tom Brewster plays a draw to the button to save the end, and the score is 3-3, with Team Brewster ahead on the stats at this point. Then disaster. Tom's last hit in the ninth is overswept, Smith counts two (nearly three on a measure) and ran home two up clearing everything in sight.

The linescore is here. Murdoch v Smith for the tickets to Grand Forks tomorrow afternoon 2.30 pm.

Tonight's pics, by Bob, celebrate the hardworking front ends!
