The linescores are all here. Above is Hammy McMillan and Scott Hamilton. This game was tied up after seven ends, with Hammy having the hammer in the eighth. After playing a great clearance with his first, he did not need to play his last stone. Hammy, David Smith, Ross Paterson and Sandy Gilmour were through to the semis.

David Sik v Graham Shaw. Graham was one ahead coming home. The Czech skip made his single in the eighth, and it was down an extra end. Graham then failed to draw to an empty house with his last. Another extra! This time, with his last, Graham makes a double kill (just) for the win. Graham Shaw, David Hay, Robin Niven and Kerr Drummond have a place in the semifinals.

Frazer Hare and Sandy Reid. Reid with Moray Combe playing the last stones, Scott Macleod and David Soutar pulled away to a 4-1 lead after five and ran out the winners.

Big game this one - Duncan Fernie against David Murdoch. The score was all square after seven, David playing an angled raise takeout to make two at the penultimate end. With last stone in the eighth, Duncan, needing to get a good bite of the four foot, was too heavy, and Team Murdoch (David, Warwick Smith, Glen Muirhead and Ross Hepburn) was through to the semis.
