All three resulted in convincing wins for Forres, Ballindalloch and Moray junior rinks.

Pacesetter Charlie Watt jnr’s Forres team maintained their 100 per cent record over the last two curling seasons with a crushing 12-1 win over Elgin’s Helen Downey.

Ballindalloch’s Gordie Kennedy found himself 3-0 down after the opening two ends against an inspired Linda Hardie’s Forres rink.

The inspiration, however, was quickly doused, as the Speyside ensemble scored at each of the next five ends to run away to an 11-3 victory.

In the battle of the Moray juniors teams, it was Georgia Clarke’s rink that came out on top.

Owen Watson opened the scoring with a single at the first end, but excellent tactics and shot execution by Clarke gave her a 9-1 lead after three ends.

Two blanked ends followed before Watson picked up a score of 4 to even up the contest, but Clarke counted 2 at the last end for a solid 11-5 win.

Watt leads the way on maximum points after three games, a point ahead of Kennedy with Clarke moving up to third position after her rink's first victory.
