Perth Day 2

Day 2 of The Co-operative Funeralcare Scottish Curling Championships saw a similar pattern to the first day’s play with defending champions Eve Muirhead and Tom Brewster showing that they mean business in 2013.

Both teams were playing, arguably, their biggest challengers at the event with Eve taking on Hannah Fleming and Tom facing David Edwards.

Eve and her team are really setting the pace in Perth and today they saw off Hannah Fleming 7-1 in seven ends.

Brewster, meanwhile, needed an extra end in his 5-4 win this evening – one of three extra-end games in tonight’s session. Brewster and Glen Muirhead are now the only undefeated teams.

Special mention for Jennifer Martin’s team who were playing Gina Aitken’s rink this afternoon. They found themselves 6-2 down going into the ninth end but came away with an 8-6 win after ten – a great comeback and proof that it’s not over until it’s over.
