It was the battle between the two GB Olympic Squad teammates this morning in the Columba Cream Scottish Ladies Curling Championship at Perth. And it was Eve Muirhead and her team that came out on top against Kelly Woods' side. Two behind in the ninth, the Scottish Junior Champ made a raise takeout for a pair, and in the tenth, with the end set up well by her team, she placed her last two stones perfectly. Kelly was left with a delicate raise to the button. She was close, but not close enough, and the two teams share top spot in the rankings, which you can see here.
