We won back the Bonnybridge Quaich on 1st Feb (with Bonnybridge having won it from us last year).
We played our annual match against Bonnybridge 26.1.22. Alan (subbing for Don) skipped the team of Philip, Laura and Janice. Bonnybridge took a 1 in the first end . B&S fought back, taking a 3 in the 2nd end- all was looking promising! Unfortunately, that was the highlight of the game as far as B&S was concerned.Alan then frequently came to hack with many stones stacked against us but managed to reduce the losses- we lost a 2 then a 1 then a 2 in the next 3 ends. Only in the final end did we manage to cling on to our shot stone. Final score Bonnybridge 6; B&S 4. Well done Bonnybridge.
On Friday we played our annual match against Bonnybridge for the honour of retaining (and cleaning) the Bonnybridge Quaich. Alan L, subbing for Mark, skipped the team of Laura, Gillian and Don. They started very well and were 4-0 up by the end of the third end but frankly thereafter squandered their advantage letting Bonnybridge back into the game for a final 5-5 shots score by the end of play — shockingly slack of them!! — ha ha. The good news is that they won on ends — 4-3. Brinkmanship or what!!! Well done Alan, Laura, Gillian and Don — photo of the happy squad attached.
Apologies for the photo below — a bit harrowing I know!! Nonetheless this bunch of curling misfits came good this evening to win back the Bonnybridge Quaich in our inter-club match against Bonnybridge. The score was 8-5.
Well done Tom, Rob, Gordon and Don.
So out of our four inter-club matches we have won three trophies — not bad at all.
Well we played our yearly match against Bonnybridge yesterday evening and I have to disclose that we have lost yet another trophy; that is three inter-club games we have managed to lose this year! Not good folks.
Anyway the game started well with a 1 for them then a 1 for us, a 4 for them then a 4 for us — all square halfway through. Then the wheel came off the wagon but basically the big turning point was a brilliant shot (or a totally lucky shot depending on which team’s point of view) by Bonnybridge’s skip to slot a stone through an impossible gap to convert our almost certain 3 for us to zilch. The final score was a disappointing 10-5.
Well done to Bonnybridge.
