Kootenay Savings Super League: Rellish Transport and Ferguson rinks meet in final

The Kootenay Savings Super League curling will see a rematch of last year’s A-final take to the ice.

The Kootenay Savings Super League curling will see a rematch of last year’s A-final take to the ice as it winds down its season on Thursday at the Trail Curling Club.

Team Ferguson will meet Rellish Transport in the A final, while it will be a battle of the Nichols’ in the B final, with Maglio Ladies waging war on West Kootenay Mechanical.

Rellish Transport continued its good play advancing to the A final with a dominant 8-1 win over Brost Autoworx, forcing Brost’s Desiree Borsato rink to shake hands after six ends.

Yet, the game of the night pitted Team Albo and Team Ferguson in the other A semi-final. Albo caught on to the swingy ice early, jumping out to a 5-0 lead after four ends. Ferguson started to slowly crawl back with singles in the fifth, sixth and seventh ends. Skip Darrin Albo seemed to put the game away in the eighth, with an awesome wide hit and roll, bumping Ferguson’s guarded shot rock off the button to count two. But Albo jammed a run back in the ninth, allowing Skip Rob to draw for three, to make it 7-6. Albo then slid agonizingly too far in the 10th, gift wrapping Ferguson a steal of two and an exciting 8-7 win.

On the B side, Skip Heather Nichol and her Maglio Ladies team curled their best game of the year, putting up two four-enders on Team Fines, on their way to a 12-3 drubbing.

In the other B semi, Myron Nichol and the rest of his West Kootenay Mechanical rink also had a great game, bouncing back from last week’s loss, to outcurl Maglio Mens to a 7-0 win.

The A and B finals go at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Trail Curling Club with the remaining teams playing in the consolation C event.
