Kootenay Savings Super league: Norbert skips Hyundai to victory

Team Ferguson went into steal mode right from the first end

It was a light week in the Kootenay Savings Super League, as the Myron Nichol rink, fresh off their impressive win of the Nelson Merchants Cash Spiel, was unable to ice a team against the Deane Horning rink.

Castlegar Hyundai, with Rob Norbert skipping, took on the Ken Fines rink. After Fines started with a deuce, Norbert made a nice double take-out in the second to lay three. In the third, Fines, with Hyundai laying two guarded, had an opportunity to draw for one, but chose to throw a double take-out through a tight port for a chance at five. He achingly racked on the guard, giving Hyundai a steal of two. Team Hyundai then stole again in the fourth for an early 6-2 lead.

Fines and Norbert traded deuces over the next four ends, but Fines figured it wasn’t his night, shaking hands on a 10-6 Castlegar Hyundai win.

Team Ferguson had a great battle with Justin Umpherville and his Junior Mens rink. Team Ferguson went into steal mode right from the first end, leaving Umpherville runbacks or difficult draws to try and score.

Skip Umpherville couldn’t quite get to that shot stone, as Ferguson stole one in the first five ends for a 5-0 lead. The Juniors got on the board with a single in the sixth, and closed the gap with a steal of their own in the seventh, but the Ferguson rink just keeps rolling along this year, taking a three spot in the eighth for an 8-2 victory.

Team Ferguson starts the second half alone in first with a three-point lead over Team Horning.

Great curling continues again this Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Trail Curling Club, spectators are welcome.
