Perth Saturday

It looks to be an interesting Saturday at Perth as the Scottish Junior Championships reach their climax.

I've been following the results on the RCCC website here. In the junior men's event, Jamie Dick's side beat Glen Muirhead at an extra end in their last round robin game, and that has eliminated the holder from the competition. Now Jamie plays a tiebreaker against Graeme Black who also finished on a 6-1 win-loss record. The winner goes to tomorrow afternoon's final. The loser will play a semi against Kerr Drummond tomorrow morning at 10.00, the winner of that game going forward to the final too.

A similar situation has occurred in the junior women's event. Hannah Fleming needed to win her last round robin game to go straight to the final. But she lost to Jennifer Dodds. However, Fleming's 6-1 win-loss record was the same as Eve Muirhead's, both jointly in first place in the standings, and that has set up a tiebreaker to see who will advance directly to the final. The loser will play Claire Hamilton tomorrow morning for the second place in the championship game.

Join me at Perth tomorrow!
