Boyd Senior Finals Day 2016

The Semi Final line up for the 2016 Boyd Seniors saw Wishaw, skipped by Bob Parry take on East Kilbride & Haremyres, skipped by Jackie Craig and Bathgate, skipped by Bob Smillie up against Dippool skipped by Jim Sandilands. Both Wishaw and Bathgate got off to fast starts and dominated their semi finals.
In the evening 3rd/4th playoff game East Kilbride opened up a 6 shot lead after only 3 ends. Back came Dippool however, narrowing the deficit to just 1 shot with 2 ends to play. A score of 2 in the penultimate end steadied the EK ship however and Jackie Craig's rink finished in 3rd place overall with a score of 8 shots to 6.
The final was even more a game of two halves ! With only 3 ends to play Wishaw lead by 6 shots only to lose a three, a two and then another fatal two in the final end thus gifting the game to Bathgate.
