Glen Meadows upsets the Scots

North Saanich curling club teams play for Strathcona Cup

David Giles helped the Glen Meadows curling teams to score more points than the visiting Scottish teams. Giles was part of the Canadian contingent to Scotland in 2009 that claimed the Strathcona Cup.

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.
