The Scottish men’s seniors curling champions, including Stranraer’s Norman Brown and Hugh Aitken had wins in Sunday afternoon’s seventh session of round-robin play at the world seniors in Sochi, Russia.

The men had an untroubled 14-2 win over Kazakhstan, who have now scored only three points in three games. They opened with a score of two and then finished the game off with a four in the fifth end and a steal of three in the sixth. This result – a third win – keeps them in joint top position in Group A, with Canada.

After the game, skip Gordon Muirhead said, “they’re very inexperienced and it’s good to see another country curling, but they’re not at this level yet. It gives us another chance to try to get on top of the ice. Now we need and want a couple of tight games just to give us focus, keeping the concentration is not easy.”

Neil Fyfe, also from Stranraer, and his Irish senior champs got their second win against Latvia 5-3 yesterday afternoon but went down to Japan 7-4 in the evening.
