Bute Curling Club lost 9-6 to Gourock in their latest fixture in the Greenock Day League this week.

Ron Forrester (skip), Donnie MacLeod, Beck Reid and Douglas MacDonald got off to a strong start against a Gourock rink skipped by Gordon Boswell, scoring three shots over the first two ends, but Gourock hit back forcefully and scored nine shots in the four ends that followed to open up a 9-3 lead.

Bute finished the game well, picking up three shots at the final end, but their efforts weren’t enough to stave off defeat.

Next up for Bute are an Argyll Province match and a club championship competition.
