Following on from last weeks’ disappointing away defeat at Willowbrae hopes were high of a return to winning ways at home to HIillside. However such hopes quickly faded with 3 of the NBC rinks failing to register a shot in the first 4 ends. Craig Snodgrass’s team never got going and fell to a heavy defeat. This was quickly followed by the demise of Bob Lee’s squad. A brief light was flickered as ROC’s four recorded a victory and, in a grandstand finish, Phil Rae and his squad almost completed a tremendous comeback when lying 3, and game, at the last were beaten by a deflection. Away to Craigentinny for the start of the second half of the league next week and the only way is up for the Eagles!
The mood in the clubrooms was definitely lifted however by news of the First teams stunning 9-0 victory away to Hillside
