Bute Curling Club’s struggles in the Greenock Day League continued this week with a heavy defeat at the hands of Gourock.

Bute’s rink, comprising Donnie MacLeod (skip), Donald Kinnear, Helen Hay and Peter Martin, started well by taking the first end by a single shot, but Gourock responded in devastating fashion, winning four ends in a row to open up a 7-1 lead.

Bute stemmed the flow with a single shot at the sixth end, but Gourock finished in style, taking four shots in the seventh and last end to complete an 11-2 victory.
