Murrayfield curlers John Hamilton and Struan Macnee stayed on course to reach next month’s Scottish Championship finals after epic qualifying victories in Perth yesterday.

Hamilton came from 5-2 down to beat former world champion Ewan MacDonald 7-5 in the morning before recovering from another three-stone deficit to pip Forfar’s Sandy Reid 4-3.

Macnee produced similar heroics against Lockerbie’s Duncan Gracie, winning 7-6 after an extra end despite trailing 6-3. The Edinburgh skips both have three wins out of four and top Section A with MacDonald going into this weekend’s remaining qualifying matches.
