Champions on course

With both Stewartry CSC and Dumfries A gents completing a double-header last week, both knew a win was vital on Wednesday before they met at Dumfries on the Thursday. Both started well with Stewartry taking a 2-0 lead at Moffat against Beechgrove with Dumfries A doing likewise against Dumfries B before going on to completing a 4-0 victory, however  in Moffat the Beechgrove team caused an upset as they took the 3rd rubber to trial 1-2 before Stewartry had to concede the fourth rubber leaving the match a draw. In the other match of the night Dumfries C beat Kirkcudbright 4-0 at Dumfries.

Stewartry travelled to Dumfries on the Thursday knowing they could lose to keep their title hopes alive. Unfortunately for Stewartry CSC Dumfries A used home advantage to complete their second victory of the week (4-0) to open up a 3 point gap at the top of the league with 2 matches left to play.

Elsewhere, Stewartry Ladies completed the double over Dumfries with a 4-0 victory with their nearest contenders Dalbeattie recording the same score away to Beechgrove. This leaves Dalbeattie and Stewartry on level points with Stewartry entertaining Dalbeattie this week to decide the title.
