Retirees back in the hack

Men’s Retiree Curling is back stronger than ever, with 14 teams this year ready to hit the hack at the Trail Curling Club.

Men’s Retiree Curling is back stronger than ever, with 14 teams this year ready to hit the hack at the Trail Curling Club. With the infusion of ‘younger blood’ the level of curling is guaranteed to stay strong.

The tam-clad Clare Coleman rink faced the Brett Rakuson foursome and jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead. Rakuson rallied for one in the second before the Coleman side shut them down and scored six over the next four ends.  Rakuson shook hands after six ends and Coleman was first off the ice, for a change.

Ernie Brown had the game well in hand over Serge Pasquali in the seventh end.  A beautiful come-around tap for two gave the Pasquali side hope, trailing by two going into the eighth.  The Brown rink dashed that hope and ran the Pasquali side out of rocks in a 5 – 3 win.

The Dan Horan crew faced a hot Harvey Handley.  Joe Guercio had his range, Gary Schmidt nailed the broom, and Mel Debriske did not miss, that left skip Harvey draws that he executed to perfection.  The Horan side fought against the onslaught, but fell 11 – 5.

Jim Stewart’s foursome faced Tom Hall’s rink.  With the Hall side up by two after three ends, Stewart was counting four with Hall’s last rock to come.  A draw to the full four foot took the wind out the Stewart team.  Make the final 10 – 2 after six ends.

Lead, Rick Georgetti for the Alvin Caron team, set up every end.  Team Murray Walsh found his team chasing the game every end.  With the score 11 – 2 after six ends, team Walsh gave up the race.
