On the 29th of October 2014 The University team would make their first venture up to Perth to face off against the other Universities in the first round of the Scottish Universities Curling competition.
The team of McLean at skip, Striling at Vice, Polák playing second and Fyfe throwing first stones would represent the University.
The first match was to be against Aberdeen 1, a team that the university side have had close fought matches with in most outings.
This time the Aberdeen would have the better of the University side in a match that would end 6-5 to Aberdeen. Though it wasn’t the start the university teams had hoped for they were happy to have such a good match-up and good curling against a very talented opposing team.
The Second match would be against Glasgow 1.
By this time the University team had got to grips with the ice, which tends to run a lot faster than Murrayfield, and they were feeling confident for their match against Glasgow 1. This confidence obviously shone through in a match that would finish 16-3 to EUCC.
It’s always good to get a win on the board at SSS and hopefully the team can carry onto future weeks.
With so many new curlers at the club you can expect to see the line-up changing over the year and potentially two teams travelling to SSS in future years.
