Team Muirhead wins at Forfar

The Forfar Open took place this weekend and much fun was had by all who attended with Mike, Jill and the rest of the staff at Forfar Indoor Sports doing their upmost to ensure everyone was looked after.

After some keenly contested round robin games Kerry Barr and Katie Murray progressed from Section A, David Edwards and Graham Shedden from Section B, Glen Muirhead and Robin Brydone from Section C and Kyle Smith and Murray Young from Section D.

Onto the quarter finals where

Kyle Smith defeated Graham Shedden 8-4 with a big 4 ender in the 3rd end.
The young team of Robin Brydone defeated the experienced team of David Edwards 7-5.
Glen Muirhead squeezed past Murray Young 6-5 taking a 2 in the last end for the win.
Kerry Barr defeated Katie Murray 8-1 with the youngsters losing a 5 in a disastrous first end.

The semi finals were both won by the scoreline of 7-3 with Glen Muirhead defeating Kerry Barr and Kyle Smith defeating Robin Brydone.

Onto the final where a great draw by Kyle Smith in the 8th end tied the scores up at 4-4 thus forcing an extra end. Glen Muirhead's team having the hammer and successfully keeping the front clear left Glen with a nose hit for the win which he duly dispatched.

Congratulations go to Glen Muirhead, Dave Reid, Greg Drummond and Kerr Drummond on their victory.

    congrats to Forfar Mike , Gill and all the Ice staff for really good playing conditions over 3 days. Allowing time to cut ice made such a difference to quality of surface, holding up well for all 8 ends and making aggressive style possible with great swings. A really good event to be part of the scottish tour.
