4 of the 6 teams qualified to the knockout stages putting on a great display of curling on the Saturday
Team Gallacher & Team Hair made it to the 1/4finals in the High Road while Teams Kennedy & Henderson met in the Semi Finals of the Low Road.
Team Henderson (Fay Henderson, Andrew Robson, Katie Jackson and Stuart Robson) and Team Lyon were the qualifiers for the Low Road final
In the final Team Lyon started the scoring with one shot in the first end, but team Henderson quickly replied with three in the second end. Team Lyon took single shots in the next two ends, the fourth end being close enough for a measure, to level the score. Team Henderson took the next two ends with two and one. Team Lyon got two in end seven, so going into the eight end Team Henderson had a lead of one. Team Lyon with their last stone got a lovely little tap up nicely behind a guard. Last stone from Team Henderson just trickled a little too far to the back of the house. The game was a draw at six all after eight ends, so an extra end had to be played and Team Henderson took one to win an excellent game.
