The home club were expecting a close game on their own carpet despite being well beaten at Inverurie 49-79 so Inverness were staggered at the way the match went.

won by 19 shots.

The Brian Reid rink had an even first half, but Christie (Inverness) upped his game and Garioch lost 11-19.

Gary MacDonald was up against Inverness’s skip Jean Willwood and in her third match as skip she finished 23-8.

Bill Barclay rink scored 13 points against Inverness’s Alan Robinson who had his best score of the season.

He won by 9 shots.

In the North A League Garioch have beaten Inverness, Turriff and Buchan and sit with 6 points, but they have to play Elgin at home next week and then Turriff at home.
