Team Brewster wins Scotland World Championship Berth
Aberdeen’s Tom Brewster and his team of Greg Drummond, Scott Andrews and Michael Goodfellow retained the Scottish national title when they beat Perth’s David Smith by 5-2 in the final of the Co-operative Funeralcare Scottish Curling Championships in Perth.
This was a low-scoring game – with six blank ends – but there was plenty of high-class play.
As Page Play-off winners, the Smith team had the hammer but Brewster made the first break-through in the third end when Perth’s fourth player Warwick Smith came up short with his final draw and handed Brewster a steal of two. After three blank ends, Smith made up for his earlier mistake by playing a brave promote on his own stone to knock out two Brewster stones, score two and level the game.
Brewster took the lead again straightaway in the eighth when he played a delicate split on two front stones to nudge one of them and his own shooter in for another two. Smith was then looking for two to level again, but was forced to blank the ninth and then, in the tenth, good play by Brewster’s team left Smith with an impossible doule attemept to let Brewster steal another single for the win that gave his team their second successive title and the right to represent Scotland in April’s World Men’s Championships in Basel, Switzerland.
