                       WHAT A MATCH!

Two players were playing in their 3rd Punchbowl final in a row.
Willie Baird had won the previous 2 and Stella Cassidy
had twice been on the receiving end of these defeats.
She didn't mention that to her skip Jim Strang until after the match.
Considering the pressure of being in the final,
together with the large crowd of familiar faces staring down on them,
the standard of play from the 8 curlers was very high.
After 4 ends the score was 1-1. There had been 2 blanked ends
and Jill Strang was the "take out" star.
She had a treble take out at 2nd end then a double take out at the 3rd
followed by another double in the 4th.
Yes, all of these were deliberate
as she followed the ice given by her skip WIllie.
It was one shot for Jim at the 5th end
and then in the 6th,
somehow Jim found Willie's red to tap it back
only to then see Willie play a beautiful draw shot.
Jim then played another wonderful shot to end up on the button.
Willie then played a lovely draw but couldn't dislodge
Jim's shot enough and it was a shot to the yellows.
Willie pulled back with a 2
to make it peels after 7 ends with a fine draw shot.
Going into the 8th end, everyone upped their game
as one great shot was better than the other.
Yellow was shot as Willie played his 1st shot,
he tapped it back but not enough.
Jim played a guard then Willie played his last shot.
He was literally jumping up and down on the ice
as he urged his sweepers on.
The yellow was shifted but Jim's shot
followed Willie's and got the shot. 4-3 to Jim.
Dramatically, the bell hadn't rung so it was on into the 9th end!
Jim's last shot had to count, it did.
It was then up to Willie, he fired a terrific bullet of a shot
to win the shot and it was then a measure for 2nd shot.
It was yellow so the match went into an extra end.
In the 10th end it was no surprise
that tension, nerves and tiredness took effect.
Willie's red was shot as Jim played the last shot.
He needed to draw and did. A proper skip's shot!

With 5 shots to 4, the Punchbowl winners for 2018-19 are
Jim Strang, Margaret Ferguson, Stella Cassidy and Craig Lambie
but a special mention goes to the Runners-up,
Willie Baird, Jill Strang, Robert Hosie and Katie Brown
for their valiant effort and contribution to this great match.

SPECIAL REMINDER:
Can everyone who is down to play in the singles on the 28th December
please put an alert in their calendar
as I know we can all lose track of the days over the Christmas period.
I'm away at a wedding so won't be there
but I wish you all a great Christmas and Happy New Year.
