Darrin Albo’s team came back from a three-point deficit to earn a 7-7 tie with the VanYzerloo rink in Kootenay Savings Super League action last week.

Albo comes back, steals point from VanYzerloo

Team Albo and Team VanYzerloo waged a great back-and-forth affair in a battle of second and third place teams.

This past week in the Kootenay Savings Super League curling, Team Albo and Team VanYzerloo waged a great back-and-forth affair in a battle of second and third place teams at the Trail Curling Club.

The teams were tied at 3-3 after five ends, when things started to tilt VanYzerloo’s way with a steal of one in the sixth, and looking for more in the seventh.

Skip Darrin Albo, staring at four VanYzerloos stones, calmly drew to the four foot to tie the game again. Skip VanYzerloo got momentum back with a three in the eighth, but Albo made two brilliant draws in the ninth to be one down coming home. The Rossland skip followed that up with a perfect raise behind cover in the 10th that Dutchy couldn’t out-draw for an Albo steal and an exciting 7-7 tie game.

The Heather Nichol rink was in tough against first place Corvus Construction skipped by Deane Horning. Corvus curled a brilliant game, conceding nothing to the Nichol rink, stealing the second, third, fourth seventh and eighth ends for a 10-2 victory.

Team Myron Nichol took advantage of their hammer situations scoring deuces on his first three opportunities to lead 6-2 after five ends over Team Beauchamp. It didn’t get any better for the Beauchamp in the latter stages of the game, as all Russ could manage were singles in the sixth, eighth and 10th ends for a 9-4 Nichol win.

Team Umpherville jumped out to a 4-1 lead against Team Fines, but skip Ken, the wily veteran, didn’t panic, stealing the fourth and fifth ends to tie the game 4-4 after five. The teams traded singles before Umpherville was forced to take one in the eighth. Fines blanked the ninth to be one down coming home with the hammer. Fines’ third, Steve Greenwood made a perfect hit and roll behind two guards to turn the end around, leading to an impressive three for Fines and an 8-6 win.
