On Sunday 27th October Edinburgh University played Aegon in the Linlithgow League. The university team consisted of Spain as skip, Fyfe playing third, Sheddan as second and playing lead was Keatinge. This was Sheddan’s second curling game and Fyfe’s debut for the club.
Despite winning the coin toss, our winning streak shortly ended. Both teams struggled to find their weight in the first end with no stones remaining in the house. Ends 2,3 and 4 were very well played by the opposing team managing to guard or take out all of our stones. A well played shot by Fyfe in the 5th end kept the spirits up in our team although Aegon’s strong performance dominated with them also gaining 2 in both the 6th and 7th end. Spain managed a fantastic take out in the final end to give us one more point. Overall, Edinburgh University put in a lot more effort that the score may suggest.
