Maxine Northcott, Wilma Hendry, Virginia Mahoney and Shirley Bennett represented BHAS in Ladies Fours Championship at Caltowie and won their three matches to triumph as Regional Champion Fours. In the first game they won against Pirie with skipper Di Rashleigh, score being 10 shots to 6 shots. Games are played over 12 ends. After end four Maxine’s rink stayed ahead of Pirie. In the second game they played against Crystal Brook with skipper Kay Cox and won 13 shots to 8 shots. BHAS won the first five ends which included some handy multiples, so although Kay’s team rallied and won five of the last seven ends; they were unable to catch up from a bad start. In the third and final game Maxine’s team played against Karin Lynch’s Laura team and won 11 shots to 6 shots. Although both won six ends each, Maxine’s team scored three multiples, whilst they managed to keep Laura from scoring multiples, so that Laura could only record singles.

Our ladies did well in low scoring games against quality opposition.
