LOGAN Kennedy and Lennon Rafferty claimed the British Isles under-18s international series at the weekend in Wales, writes Matt Osborne.

Both players medalled in the event, ensuring Scotland topped the table and claimed the overall series win.

Rafferty teamed up with Abbie Harris and Jamie Noon to claim silver in the triples while Kennedy won bronze in the singles.

Meanwhile, Bainfield hosted the first round of the Scottish Team Championship on Sunday, where East Lothian tackled Midlothian.

With two strong-looking teams on paper, a close battle was expected and did not disappoint.

Midlothian were spearheaded in the singles by the talismanic figure of Colin Walker, with Danny Stevenson representing East Lothian.

Walker hit the front early and opened a 16-7 lead as he looked to put his team on the scoreboard early. Stevenson dug deep and reduced the deficit to trail 17-15.

But Walker took the next four shots without reply as Midlothian registered the first two points available.

John McCrorie had a great afternoon and looked to have levelled up the match with two points in the fours with an end to spare, skipping Kenny McCrorie, Chloe McMillan and Dee Hoggan to a 14-11 win.

Midlothian skip Stacey McDougal crucially converted the last end, with one against, the Midlothian skip converted the head and claimed a vital three shots as it looked increasingly likely that shots scored would decide the overall.

Stuart Thomson and Kim Hoggan had a strong showing in the pairs.

They opened with a big count of five on end one on their way to adding East Lothian’s second win with a 22-12 triumph over Jim Cullen and Ellie Borthwick.

Focus would swiftly swap to the triples, with the legendary figure of Willie Wood skipping Mags Thomson and Janet Fairnie.

Midlothian were leading 20-12 playing the last end and the shots were balanced 64-63 in Midlothian’s favour.

Fairnie was playing into the head and handing East Lothian the shot.

Wood rolled back the years and added an excellent second shot that would see the East Lothian side claim a dramatic 65-64 shots win.

The squad now progress to play Abbeyview next month.
