Scottish Playdowns


Last weekend was the Senior National play-downs and we had the singles and triples playing at East Kilbride.

Jim Walker was out in the singles and he played against Sam Graham of East Kilbride in the last 16. After a good start Jim piled the pressure on and came away with a 21-11 shot victory against the home advantage. He then went on to play Lee Dick from Paisley in the 1/4 final. This game was a different affair from the morning game as Jim struggled with the rink for most part of the game and he could only muster 5 shots before Lee got to 21. Still some achievement getting to the 1/4 final.

Martin Kostigovs, Charlie Watson and Gordon Porteous were out in the triples and they played Jim Fortune, Alan Paxton and Morris Sturgeon in their last 16 match. The Ardrossan trio got of to a flying start and never looked back as they ran away with the game 16-3 victors. They then went on to play another strong team from Blantyre made up of Michael Blowman, Tom Wallace and Gerry Sullivan. This game went differently from the first as the Ardrossan seniors found themselves down for all the fist half of the game. With the game getting close to the end they started playing attacking shots to gain some ground back hoever this made the score worse as they ended the game short with a 24-8 defeat.

Hard lines to the seniors and well done on reaching the last 8.
