After two wins the previous week the 1st Team of Greig McDonell, Colin Green and Iain Johnstone hosted Murrayfield 3 in Week 10. After losses in games 1 and 4 of the night for Iain and Greig respectively, the match looked like being a tight affair as it was poised at 2-2. Game 5 proved to be crucial as Iain defeated the far more experienced Colin Clark in three straight ends and that set the tone for the rest of the night as the home side never looked back as they raced to an 8-2 victory. Colin won 3 whilst Iain and Greig both won 2 (Iain's best performance of the season thus far). Three wins on the bounce sees the 1st Team move up the Premier Division Table into 6th place.
In Division 2, the 2nd Team travelled to Bathgate to take on West Lothian 6. Clive's remarkable undefeated run continued as both he and Brian Bailey were on top form winning their 3 singles matches. John contributed as he teamed up with Clive in the doubles for a win as the 2nd Team recorded an excellent 7-3 win.
The 3rd Team hosted Corstorphine and the home team’s player of the night was Abby Wighton as she won all three of her singles matches for the first time this season. Dad James Wighton and Gary McDougal both won two in Penicuik’s 7-3 victory. The 3rd team remain undefeated this season and firmly keep the pressure on Penicuik 2 at the top of the Division. The next two weeks sees crucial matches for the 3rd Team as they take on Edinburgh International, currently sitting third in the Division, followed by the eagerly awaited tie against Penicuik 2 in the last week before the festive break.
The 4th Team matched the 1st Team’s run of form as they too secured their third straight win with an impressive 10-0 demolition of Edinburgh University 3 in Division 3. In to the Team this week came Gregory Leplatre to join forces with Tony Brentnall and Gavin Hunter. The trio were never troubled as they dominated the match. The last few weeks have seen a remarkable turn around for the 4th Team as they have rocketed up the table to a fourth place position going into the last two weeks of the first half of the season.
The 5th Team continue to find life difficult in Division 4 and after two heavy defeats in their last two matches, Rachel Petrie, Louis McLeod and Louis Myatt travelled to face Edinburgh University 4. The visitors were no match for a strong student side as they went down to their second 10-0 whitewash defeat of the season.
