Curlers with the Glen Meadows Curling Club held off visiting Scottish teams, 29 points to 26, during Strathcona Cup play on Jan. 16 in North Saanich.
Play for the Cup is held every five years, with one country’s top curling teams visiting the other. It’s Canada’s turn to host this year, after winning the Cup in 2009.
Dan Eakins reported that the local club was one of only a couple of clubs to defeat the Scots, who are now in Alberta.
There are 15 Scottish teams in the country this month, playing teams across the country to try to reclaim the Strathcona Cup.
