In Trail Retirees Curling, Team Dan Horan came out firing on all cylinders against the Forest Drinnan foursome.

Taking two in the first and stealing five over the next three ends proved to be an insurmountable lead.  Make the final 11 – 4 for Horan.

With Mel Johnson skipping the Coleman team, and leading after three ends, the Ernie Brown foursome started making every shot, and running away with the game.

Stealing their way to a 10 – 2 win

In a low scoring game between Primo Secco and Alvin Caron the turning point was the sixth end. With Caron up three to two, the Secco side stole two and followed that with a steal of three in the seventh. The Caron side could only score one in the eighth to make the final 7 – 4 Secco.

After a close start the Serge Pasquali side scored five in the third against Jim Stewart’s foursome. After a single for Stewart in the fourth, the Pasquali side pounded in five more in the fifth end. Stewart down but not out came back with four in the sixth, but Stewart decided to leave on a high note and shake after six ends.

Team Kevin Oliver jumped out to a five nothing lead after two ends, but team Murray Walsh stormed back to lead by one after seven ends. In the eighth team Oliver had a rock buried behind a hundred pounds of granite, but the called ‘Hail Mary’ shot from third Wayne Weaver left them sitting three. A deflated team Oliver could not mount a come back, make the final 9 – 6 Walsh.
