Fennell stays on top

The Pat Fennell foursome remains on top of the fourth and final draw after downing the Dan Horan rink in Retirees Curling

The Pat Fennell foursome remains on top of the fourth and final draw after downing the Dan Horan rink in Retirees Curling earlier this week.

After opening with a single, Horan gave up points in the next six ends against   Fennell.  Horan took two in the seventh to make it close, but team Fennell ran them out of rocks in the eighth to make the final 6–3; a lopsided score in a close, well curled game.

In a high scoring game Team Clare Coleman kept the pressure on Harvey Handley’s foursome, but it was Coleman that carried the day and  won the game 10–6.

In a game that went back and forth for six ends it was team Primo Secco that broke the game open in the seventh end against team Tom Hall with a spectacular draw to the button for a steal of two that sealed the deal.  Make the final 8–5.

Leading 4-1 in the third end team Ernie Brown stole three in the fourth to roll to an 11-4 victory against team Brett Rakuson.

Team Serge Pasquali surged out to a 7-1 lead after three ends against team Forrest Drinnan.  But Drinnan fired back, taking two in the fourth, then stealing four in the fifth, and another four over the final two ends for an incredible 11-7 victory.

Team Frank Jorgensen jumped out to a 5-0 lead after three ends, but Team Murray Walsh battled back to tie the game in the seventh end. However, in the eighth end, with hammer, team Jorgensen sealed the win with a score of two.
