In the battle of the truckers, Gavin’s juggernaut came out to win by a mile. Missing his talisman Vice, Jim’s rink lacked the sweeping power that is the engine of Gavin’s rink. A single in the second end was the only score for Jim as Gavin stole ends four through eight.
Hugh Reid 9 – 2 Robert Wilson
A steal of 3 to Hugh in the fourth end gave him a 5-1 lead. Scoring a single in the fifth was Rabbie’s only further score before giving up further steals in the seventh and eighth. Rabbie remains at the foot of the league having lost all seven games.
James Whiteford 10 – 5 Peter Barrett
Despite stealing a 4 in the first end, Peter struggled to adjust to having his usual front end missing. Unable to keep Jimuk from scoring 2’s and 3’s, Peter conceded after losing the third consecutive steal in the seventh end.
Craig Reid 11 – 5 Tom Reid
Craig opened with a 5 in the first end and the rinks swapped 2’s and 3’s until Craig stole a single in the sixth to lead 11-4. In the seventh, facing 7, Tom tried unsuccessfully to draw through a tight port with his first shot. With Craig failing to fill the hole, Tom succeeded at the second attempt with the draw to keep the score respectable.
