Curling: Super League teams jockey for position

After the first three games of the Kootenay Savings Super League, two familiar teams remain undefeated.

After the first three games of the Kootenay Savings Super League, two familiar teams remain undefeated.

Castlegar’s Deanne Horning and Trail’s Rob Ferguson both go into Week 4 with 3-0 records.

Among Horning’s victories was a 7-4 win over James Mackenzie of Castlegar. This is Mackenzie ‘s first year skipping a team in the Super League. Mackenzie’s third, Rob Norbert was a longtime teammate of Horning.

Meanwhile Rob Ferguson has had three lopsided wins, one over another new squad, Justin Umperville and his Junior Men’s team from Trail.

Ken Fines of Trail got off to a good start, with a 9-6 win over Myron Nichol, but then dropped his next two games to Horning and Ferguson.

Last Thursday saw a good match-up between the two new rinks, Umperville and Mackenzie. The see-saw battle included three different lead changes and some very good shot making by both teams. The match came down to the last end when Umperville  had to make a draw to tie, but his shot came up just a little light, to give Mackenzie a slim 7-5 win.

Kootenay Savings Super League resumes this Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Trail Curling rink.
