League week 10 2XV1

At last, light at the end of the tunnel …. With things beginning to look desperate the 2nds went into last night match 7 points behind their Summerside opponents and knowing this was the match they simply had to win. And what a win it was. The 7-2 result closing the gap to 2 points and putting us 8 points away from the safety spot. Wins for the rinks of Phil Rae and Hugh Hilson were added to by ‘new recruit’ Stan Christie and his squad and only ROC’s last foot short bowl prevented his four getting a win and an overall whitewash. Great result on the night and now on to Tanfield next Wednesday. There is an opportunity to close the 8 point distance with our hosts and with Maitland, who now occupy 3rd bottom spot, to visit the NBC the following week that light might just be little brighter …. hopefully it is not a train (being Edinburgh, should that be tram?) coming the other way!!
