Frazer Hare and his team of Robbie Dick, Jamie Strawhorn and Don Frame defeated Graeme Black, Scott Hamilton, Colin Howden and Allan Marshall to win the Lockerbie Superspiel at the weekend.
Frazer qualified top of the section with 7 points courtesy of a 6-5 win over Graham Sheddon in his last schenkel game. At that point any one of five teams was in with a shout of the top four places and had Frazer not made his two in the last end he might not have made it through to the quarter finals.
Graeme Black qualified second out of the same section along with Neil Joss and Christine Cannon.
David Edwards topped Section A with Gavin Fleming, David Hardie and the Canadian rink Kelly Marnoch filling the other spots for the quarterfinals.
All four of the quarter finals were closely fought games with David Edward defeating Christine Cannon 5-2, Graeme Black defeating David Hardie 5-4, Gavin Fleming defeating Neil Joss 5-4 and Frazer Hare defeating Kelly Marnoch 6-5.
The semi finals pitched David Edwards against Graeme Black and with a steal of one in the 8th end Graeme edged this one 4-2.
Frazer’s team were up against SCT founder Gavin Fleming and although Gavin lost a six in the second end fought back to be tied 7-7 coming down the last. Frazer managed to hold his nerve to come through 9-7.
The final was decided by a decisive steal of three in the 6th end to give Frazer's team a 6-3 lead which was enough to secure the title.
David Edwards won the 3-4 play off game defeating Gavin Fleming 5-3.
A great weekend was had by all and a special thanks must go to all involved in making this event a success. A special thanks also to Richard Smith for being the compare for the quiz on Saturday night.
