31st Highland Junior International

The 31st Inverness Junior Curling International was played to a successful conclusion at Inverness Ice Centre over the weekend. The prize fund of £1,400.00 ensured the event was as competitive as previous seasons with every team dropping at least one game during the qualifying rounds.

In the girls event all four teams were in the mix for the three qualifying spots heading in to the final round robin draw. Perth's Kirsty Paterson, with Nairn's Dionne Clark throwing third stones, secured a direct route to the final. Paterson led Forfar's Hailey Duff 7-1 after four but was eventually required to play a closing double take-out to secure top spot. However Duff's come-back secured enough ends and shots to earn a place in the 2/3 play-off by a single shot from Kinross curler Alison Wood.

Wood, with Inverness curlers Ellie Fraser and Eilidh Yeats, appeared to have secured an automatic qualifying place when she led Katie Murray's Stirling rink by four up the last. However a mixture of inexperience and quality shot-making from the Royal Club Academy supported team saw Murray manufacture a closing five to squeak through.

Paterson, who had opted to move Elspeth Lean to skip, had turned over the Murray four 9-2 in the round robin. However the Murray rink continued their Sunday form and opened with two steals before Paterson was forced to take her single in the third. The game changer came in the fourth where quality front end play set up the opportunity and Murray made no mistake in posting a big four. Murray's squad continued to dominate with the Paterson four unable to scale the heights that saw them top the qualifying section and they eventually shook 8-3 down.

In the boys event four teams were still in the running entering the final round robin games.

Marek Cernovsky's Czech rink looked strong contenders throughout the weekend but a closing defeat to George McConnell's Greenacres rink left both teams just outside the top two places.

The final was contested by two Royal Club Academy supported teams both featuring local talent. Stuart Taylor's Forfar rink with Dalcross curler Ross Fraser at third topped the qualifiers with a 5-1 record. After an indifferent start pre-tournament favourite Robin Brydone moved James Carswell to throw last stones and with Ardclach curler Calum Greenwood in the line-up scraped into the final by virtue of one end over the weekend.

The final was a high quality game with the large gallery entertained with quality shot-making throughout the encounter. However while there was little to choose between the teams the Brydone four appeared to have the edge. The game swung in Brydone's favour with two stolen singles when Taylor's last stone efforts appeared well thrown but narrowly failed to deliver the necessary result. Brydone led 6-4 with last stone advantage up the last and made no mistake running the Taylor rink out of stones.

Murray's Rink were quickest out of the gate in the 2/3 playoff and caught the Duff four cold. A big steal of four in the third helped Murray open a seven shot lead that proved insurmountable to set up a final rematch with Kirsty Paterson's rink.
