Bute Curling Club’s 2014-15 campaign ended on a high note this week with an 8-5 win over Newark in their last match of the Greenock Day League season.

Donald Kinnear (skip), Ron Forrester, Bill Stein and Margaret MacLeod took the first end by two shots, but in an end-to-end game, neither team was able to win two or more ends in succession.

Bute, though, finally broke the pattern in the last end: after levelling the game with a single shot in the penultimate end, they went on to finish in style with three shots in the eighth and last end to conclude the season on a high note.

The club’s annual prize-giving will be held on Saturday, May 16.
