Rhymers’ form slips

THE most recent Agrii Border League results saw Lauderdale having two games last week, including a 9-5 win over Jedburgh, with some very robust takeouts from each club, followed by an 8-8 peel with Glendale.

Earlston’s top finishing hopes were set back a bit when they went down to Ayton Castle 11-5 and St Boswells were not too pushed when going 15-3 over Teviotdale.

In the closest game, Swinton dug deep from a poor start to head Lammermuir 9-8, helped a little by some inept decisions from the Lammermuir skip.

Three Murrayfield rinks visited Kelso Ice Rink last Wednesday in an inter-district fixture, with the result being 2-1 for the Borders, but a narrow two-shot advantage kept this event on its toes to the very end.
