The Eglinton Jug came to it’s conclusion with two excellent semi finals on Friday afternoon between Bobby Ireland’s Crosshill and David Mundell’s Stewarton Heather 2, and Craig Reid’s Stewarton Heather 1 up against Michael Reid’s Stewarton Heather 3. Both games went to the last stone and Crosshill and Stewarton 3 emerged victorious going on to contest a very entertaining final.
The final was a close game for the first three ends, Michael then took control with a 4 in the fourth to move 5-2 up. Bobby took a single in the fifth to cut the deficit to 2. Michael then stretched further ahead with a 2 in the sixth 7-3. The seventh end had the healthy crowd of supporters in full voice as the Crosshill boys levelled the game with a 4 . All square going into a tense last end ,Michael kept his nerve and played a good hit and stick to win the Jug.
