Home Nations Results - Day 2 Session 1

The women’s triples team of Lesley Doig, Stacey McDougall and Lauren Baillie-Whyte for Scotland Culzean, lead from the fourth end winning with a strong 7 shot lead against Ireland. Unfortunately the Alloway triples didn’t have the same luck, losing 10:6 to a strong English side.

In the men’s fours, Scotland Alloway made a strong start leading 9:3 after six ends, the match came to a close finish with Scotland securing the win against Ireland. Despite setting off to a strong start and leading 11:7 at the tenth end, the Men’s Fours for Scotland Culzean couldn’t match a strong comeback from their English opponents.

In the women’s pairs Claire Anderson and Caroline Brown were neck and neck with their Irish counterparts throughout narrowly missing out on the win by 3 shots. The Alloway pair of Carla Banks and Megan Grantham were ahead throughout their match against England and secured a 14:11 win.

The men’s singles was again a mixed bag, with a victory for Iain McClean against Ireland’s Sam Barkley but a defeat for Darren Burnett against England’s Nick Brett.
