Ardlussa has won the Gore Curling Club competition for the third year running.

The final of the competition against Riversdale was held at the Gore rink on Thursday night.

Curling group coordinator Brian Dillon said the competition had been close all year.

‘‘Any one of the top four teams could have won it.’’

There were 10 teams in the competition.

After the teams played each other twice, the top four teams played for a spot in the finals.

Dillon played for the Ardlussa team, which had a squad of seven players.

The final was close with Ardlussa scoring four stones on the final end to take the game 11-5, he said.

The Ardlussa team played consistently well all year, he said.

The team picked up the trophies for winning the round robin competition and the most scoring stones of the season.

As in other sports it was the ‘‘top two inches’’ which was important in curling, he said.

‘‘You’ve got to concentrate.

‘‘You’ve got to be sharp about it.’’

It was also a tactical game similar to lawn bowls except in bowls the aim was to get the bowls as close to the jack as possible and in curling players aimed to get the stone in the smallest white circle marked on the ice.
