PRESTWICK gents seniors fell by 29 shots against a strong Paisley side who used their home advantage to the full.
They returned two winning cards and a draw which was more than enough to cover a 16-12 win for Prestwick's Billy McArthur over Tom Pattison.
A 10 shot defeat for Michael Higgins, a 23 shot defeat for Morris Sturgeon, and a respectable 14-14 draw for Alan Paxton leaves Prestwick still seeking their first win in this season's Scottish Seniors League.
The Bellevue Road side entertain Dumbarton on Saturday at 11am.
Rink 1: C Eade, T Collins, A Thomson, M Sturgeon; Rink 2: S Watson, W Fulton, J Fortune, M Higgins; Rink 3: W Craig, W Ferguson, J Reid, A Paxton; Rink 4: W Kennedy, T Howson, H Berretti, W McArthur; Reserves: J Docherty, S Gibson.

Former internationalist, Kevin Nibloe represented the club in the national singles at Abbeyview and after a closely contested opening match in which he saw off Headwell's Craig Watson 21-18, he was edged out in the next round by the same scoreline against Dumbarton's Kenny Paton.
