20th September 2015

Congratulations to James Craik (FYC) 2nd, with Luke Carson Skip, George Ballantyne 3rd, and Mark Taylor Lead, who were Runners Up at the Greenacres Asham Under 21 Slam. In the round robin, Team Carson had a narrow 7-8 loss to Team Whyte, a 13-2 win over Team Clark and an 8-3 win over Team Johnston. In the semi final, Team Carson had a straight forward 9-3 win over Team Barr. The final was a rematch of the earlier round robin game against the strong Academy team skipped by Ross Whyte. Team Whyte took control early on with a 6-2 lead after six ends, Team Carson narrowed the defecit to 2 shots, 6-4 in the seventh, but Team Whyte closed out the game to take the title of Asham Under 21 Champions at Greenacres.

Craig Joiner (FYC) Skip, Euan MacDiarmid (FYC) 3rd, Robin McCall 2nd, and Craig Paterson (FYC) Lead fought back well in the round robin game against McNay after being 5 shots down at one point to only lose by a single shot 7-8. Team Joiner had a good win against Lockhart 8-7 and a loss to Brydone 5-8. Team Joiner did not do enough to progress to the semi finals.

Victoria Brett Skip, Laura Waint 3rd, Julia Waint 2nd and Nicola Joiner (FYC) Lead had illness in their ranks and as a consequence had losses to Aitken, Morgan, Murray Smith and Young. They did not progress to the semi finals.

Rebecca Morrison Skip, Hailey Duff (FYC) 3rd, Mili Smith 2nd and Mhari MacDonald had a win over Young, a loss to Aitken, a win over Smith, win against Brett and a win over Morgan to make the Semi Final. In the semi final it looked as though Team Murray (skipped by Rebecca Morrison this week) would prevail with a 6-2 lead at the half way point, but some sloppy play allowed Team Morgan to capitalise with a 3 in the fifth and another 3 in the eighth end to take it to an extra end. A well played draw sealed the win for Team Morgan. In the 3/4 playoff Team Murray beat Team Young 5-4, even with Lesley Young playing a fantastic cross house triple takeout with her last stone.

Lesley Young (FYC) Skip, Katherine Spain 3rd, Jane Barr 2nd, Marin Nicol Lead had a loss to Murray, and wins vs. Smith and Brett, a draw vs. Aitken and a loss to Morgan but had enough points to make the semi finals. In the Semi Final, Team Young narrowly lost to Team Aitken 6-7. In the 3/4 playoff, Team Young again lost narrowly 4-5 to Team Murray.

The final was extremely close with Team Morgan failing to win by less than one notch on the measure in regulation play, with Aitken getting the 1 shot to level the game 6 - 6 as indicated by the umpire who had to measure the stones twice as it was so close. In the extra end Morgan had hammer but was unable to get into the button with her last stone and so Team Aitken were crowned Asham Greenacres under 21 Champions.
