Curling Match Report.


Match Report by Gus Harvey.

This, the first match played by DDWSC, resulted in a close game until the 7th and final end (score at end of 6th end was 4 – 4) when Frank played a superb final stone which left us lying 2 shots. DundeeCouncil had the final stone (hammer) but were unable to change the position as our two stones were well guarded.
This resulted in a win for us 6 – 4.
The team tonight was made up of two Able-Bodied and two Wheelchair Curlers, Frank Cooper (skip) Gus Harvey (3rd) Jay O’Reilly (2nd) and Tom McClymont (lead)
Considering this was the first “proper” game both Jay and Tom played exceptionally well. Even the opposition heaped praise on the standard of play of Jay and Tom. Nothing was said to Gus and Frank !!!!!!! Oh well.
It was a great team effort, Congrats to all!curling first win
