The first event of the 2013/14 Scottish Curling Tour took place at Dumfries at the weekend.
The 4 quarter finals produced close games with Grant Hardie and David Edwards coming through with 7-3 wins against Cameron Bryce and Scott Robertson respectively. Kyle Smith beat Veronica Zappone's young Italian team 5-3 and Martin Lill's Estonia team stole at an extra end to edge out Frazer Hare 6-5.
The semi finals were just as close with Martin Lill taking 3 shots down the last for a 6-5 win against David Edwards. Kyle Smith stole at an extra end to beat Grant Hardie 5-4.
In the final Martin Lill and Kyle Smith were tied at 4-4 after 7 ends with the Estonians producing another last end steal for the win when Kyle came up short needing the 8 foot circle for the win .
We have our first overseas winner of a SCT event and congratulate Martin Lill, Harry Lill, Siim Sildnik and Fred Randver on a successful weekend.
Here is the winning team with the trophy donated by Allen Henderson of Sulwath Brewers.
