Bute’s curlers boosted their standing in the Greenock Day League this week by defeating Dunooon 2 at the Waterfront Leisure Centre.

The Bute rink of Ron Forrester (skip), Colin Sharp, Margaret MacLeod and John Middleton took two shots at the first end, but Dunoon, skipped by Norman Laird, hit back to take a 3-2 lead.

Bute, however, levelled the match in the fourth end and went on to add five more shots in the three ends which followed, giving them an 8-3 advantage.

Dunoon pulled two shots back at the final end but it wasn’t enough to prevent Bute emerging winners by eight shots to five.
