Another week in the Kootenay Savings Super League curled to some nail-biting finishes at the Trail Curling Club.

Another week in the Kootenay Savings Super League curled to some nail-biting finishes at the Trail Curling Club.

Maglio Mens and Brost Autoworx were tied 4-4 after seven ends, with Brost inching toward the finish with single steals in the eighth and ninth to be two up coming home without the hammer. But Brost couldn’t get that perfect guard in the 10th as skip Russ Beauchamp made a delicate come around tap for two and a 6-6 tie.

Team Albo and Team Fines also ended up in a tie, but with a lot more action. After Albo opened with a deuce, Fines capitalized on the swingy ice to put up a four then stole one to take an early 5-2 lead. The teams traded deuces, then Albo got aggressive stealing the seventh, eighth and ninth to be up two coming home. But skip Ken Fines, just like Russ, made the perfect last shot for two and a 9-9 tie.

Rellish Transport, with intern skip Rich Faunt, started fast against Maglio Ladies to be up 6-0 after three, But Skip Rose Beauchamp righted her ship to score in the next three ends to close the gap to 6-4 after six. Rellish Transport jumped back out with a three, then stole the 8th, forcing Maglio Ladies to shake for the Rellish win.

Team Nichol, with third Garry Beaudry at the helm battled Team Ferguson in an exciting back and forth match.

Tied 6-6 after six, Team Ferguson took a deuce in the seventh, and looked to put the game away with four buried in the eighth when Beaudry, throwing last rock, came through the tiniest of ports to hit and roll to the four foot for one to keep his team alive. Ferguson then stomped on that comeback with a three in the ninth and an 11-7 win.

The top two teams, Ferguson and Rellish, go head-to-head tonight in Kootenay Savings Super League at 7 p.m.
