Robertson, Fourth for Team Hutcheon
With Wales dominating in the six nations rugby match airing in Curl Aberdeen; their curling compatriots took to the ice looking to emulate that performance.
However it was the locals who struck first with a two, Pougher then equalising in the 2nd drawing the button with his last. A great angled tap to the 4-foot from Angus Robertson in the 4th put Team Hutcheon back in front and then another two in the 5th followed a dip in form from the Welsh side. Hutcheon kept the pressure on and Pougher was forced to play a tricky raise double with his last in the 6th. It was played well but only managed to remove one opposition counter and a single was scored. Forced to gamble in the 7th, Pougher was a bit heavy with this last draw and gave Angus an opportunity for three which he took for a 9-3 lead and handshakes were offered.
