Horbul skips Corvus to close win over Nichol

It was another week of exciting games in the Kootenay Savings Super League curling.

It was another week of exciting games in the Kootenay Savings Super League.

With Deanne Horning away, regular third Brittany Horbul, with help from sister Leanne Palmer sparing, stepped up to skip Corvus Construction against Team Heather Nichol.

Team Nichol got on the board with a two in the first, but Corvus roared back with three straight deuces to take the early 6-2 lead. Skip Heather made a delicate come-around tap for three in the fifth to close the gap. Then after each team scored singles, Nichol stole the eighth to tie the game.

Corvus was forced to take one in the ninth, then watched as Nichols draw in the 10th to tie racked on a guard, allowing Corvus to escape with a 9-7 win.

Team Umpherville faced off against Team Fines. Skip Ken made an open hit for three in the fourth to grab a 4-3 lead. The game was tied at 5 after seven ends when the pendulum swung in Umphervilles favour.

Fines last rock in the eighth over-curled, leaving skip Justin a free draw for three, then a Fines double raise attempt in the ninth under curled, giving Umpherville a steal of two and a 10-5 win.

Team Bill vanYzerloo was up against an undermanned Team Darrom Albo, as Skip Darrin and third Dennis were out of town. Regular second Courtney Schmidt took over the reigns, and didn’t look out of place after a perfect come around tap for three in the third tied the game. The teams traded singles before one end did in Team Albo. Staring at four buried van Yzerloo stones in the sixth, Courtney attempted a long double raise that over-curled, followed by Dutchy just kicking away his last stone, as there was no way into the house.

Courtney made a nice draw for two in the eighth after van Yzerloo had stolen the seventh, but had had enough, giving VanYzerloo a 10-6 win.

Team Myron Nichol and Team Beauchamp played a classic game to start, forcing each other to take singles in the first four ends. The fifth was a nightmare for Beauchamp, as Nichol stole a huge 5, then things went from bad to worse as Nichol stole the sixth and seventh ends also, for a tale of two different games and a unforseen 11-2 drubbing.
