The second round of the men's mini tour at Lockerbie was won by Hammy McMillan with Philip Wilson, Ross Paterson and Sandy Gilmour who beat Jamie Dick, Colin Dick, Lindsay Gray and Michael Goodfellow in the final today.
Earlier McMillan's team had beaten Andrew Reed's side in the quarterfinals, and Graeme Adam's Senior Champions in the semis. The Dick team had come through against Keith MacLennan in the quarters, and Scott Hamilton in the semis.
McMilllan had a difficult chance for a big four at the first end of the final, but only got one. The youngsters held their more experienced opposition for the next six ends and the teams came down the last tied at 4-4. McMillan though held the last stone, and he needed it. Facing two, he laid it down perfectly and his team guided it to the poppy for the win.
All the mini tour results are here.
