Retiree Curling – Hall takes round 3

It came down to a tie breaker in Trail Retiree’s Curling action this week.

It came down to a tie breaker in Trail Retiree’s Curling action this week.

With a convincing Jim Stewart victory over the Guido Babuin rink, and a Hall 7-6 victory over the Primo Secco foursome in the final games of the third session, the two foursomes found themselves tied for first place overall.

The dilemma forced a one game, winner-take-all faceoff and with Stewart still under the weather, the third-place skip, Dan Horan, led the Stewart side.

Stewart scored a big four points in the second end and looked in good shape.  But the Hall side clawed back to take the lead in the seventh. With hammer in the eighth.

The best the Stewart side could do was a tie to force extra ends.  Going into the extra end with hammer the Hall side buried a rock top four then guarded it.  Left with only a very wide draw to the button, Horan came up a bit short, giving Hall the section win.

In other games The Frank Jorgensen and Murray Walsh rinks tied 7-7, Pasquali downed Coleman, while Drinnon edged Horan 8-7.

The final fourth-session begins this week. The winner from each session  will play off to decide the club champion.
