MOUAT AND WILSON EARN RIGHT FOR REMATCHES WITH MUIRHEADS IN NATIONAL FINALS

Posted on

Finals day will be a repeat of the page play-offs at the Scottish Curling Championships, after Team Mouat and Team Wilson both bounced back from disappointing defeats to win their semi finals. 

Bruce Mouat and team mates Grant Hardie, Bobby Lammie and Hammy McMillan had suffered a potentially de-moralising defeat in that first play-off match when, having cruised through the round robin stages with a perfect record, they failed to drive home a 6-3 advantage at the half way stage of their meeting with Team Glen Muirhead.

However, they immediately showed in their semi final with Team Paterson that they had put that behind them when they scored three at the opening end and were never headed in running out comfortable 8-2 winners. 

Maggie Wilson and her colleagues Rebecca Morrison, Jennifer Marshall and Eilidh Yeats had been well beaten by the other Team Muirhead in the women’s page play-offs, but they too showed their strength of character in starting powerfully with two’s at each of the first two ends against Team Farmer in their semi final. A three at the fourth pretty much ensured the win and they went on to a 11-4 victory after eight ends.

Wilson will now meet Eve Muirhead and her colleagues Lauren Gray, Jen Dodds and Vicky Wright in the women’s final which starts at 11am on Saturday, whilst Mouat’s rink takes on Glen Muirhead, Kyle Smith, Thomas Muirhead and Cammy Smith at 4pm in the mens’ final.
