Gents borders League Div 1.
Jedburgh 75 - 60 Melsrose
With last weeks game away to Ettrick Forrest being called off due to the weather the gents returned to league action against the top of table Melrose team.
The Melrose side travelled to Jed with high hopes of a victory which would've seen them clear at the top of the division but the home team had other ideas and put together a great show of nerve determination to get them over the line in what was a close game throughout.
4 rinks up and 1 draw in a close game is a great team performance with a great come back from 7-13 down for team Nagle to win 15-13 and a solid 18-11 win for team White were particular highlights.
