The Tom Hall rink continues to roll in Trail Retiree Men’s Curling, wrapping up top spot in the third session this week.

Team Kevin Oliver started with a deuce in the first end against team Tom Hall.  The Hall foursome kept the pressure on the front end of Oliver and came away with a string of singles.  Kevin’s last shot was a long angled raise double takeout for the tie, but it was not to be.  Make the final 6–3 for Hall.  And with the win the Hall foursome seals first place for the third session, with two games left.

Team Alvin Caron faced the Harvey Handley foursome, and dominated on the score sheet.  Each end Harvey was left facing opposition rocks littering the rings.  Harvey scored two in the third to make it close, but that was all he could muster.  Make the final 11–2 for Caron.

The turning point for Clare Coleman’s foursome should have been the steal of two in the sixth end against team Ernie Brown. That put Coleman ahead by two with two ends to go.  Ernie could only manage a single in seven. Up by one, with hammer Coleman managed to give up a single and tied the game 6-6.

In a lopsided game it was team Pat Burke that put away team Forest Drinnan, 14 – 3  What more can you say than, “Impressive win Pat.”

Team Serge Pasquali came out of the gate flying, with a four in the first against team Primo Secco.  Trailing nine to one after five, Primo made an angle raise takeout for three in the sixth.  A steal of one in the seventh gave hope to the Secco side, but team Pasquali ran them out of rocks in the eighth.  Make the final 9–5 for Pasquali.
