Team Murray Walsh remained undefeated in the third session of Trail Retirees Curling action with a win over the Pat Fennell rink.

Walsh blasted out of the gate against team Fennell, scoring six in the second end.  Team Fennell persisted and closed the gap over the next five ends. They pushed hard in the seventh end to tie, however, they gave up a steal of three to Walsh, in an eventual 10–6 loss.

Team Pasquali broke open a tight game with the Clair Coleman rink stealing in ends five and six to take a 6-3 lead.  Team Coleman stormed back with three in seven, and forced Pasquali to attempt a difficult double take-out in eight.  Just missing the double, Serge gave up two, making the final 8–6 for Coleman.

Team Brett Rakuson stayed perfect, facing team Harvey Handley and the first two ends saw the two teams execute every shot.  A freeze here, a hit-and-roll there left the score tied at four after two ends.  The next six ends both teams came back to earth, some hits, some misses.  When the ice chips settled team Rakuson took the game 10-6.

Team Ernie Brown also went to 2-and-0, getting off to a fast start against team Tom Hall scoring four in the first end.  Trading one’s over the next few ends, team Hall tried a triple take out in the seventh end for a big score, but gave up two.  Make the final 8-3 for Brown.

On a very keen sheet, team Primo Secco roared out to an eight point advantage after four ends over team Jim Stewart.  Team Stewart found the right weight in the fifth end but could not generate a big end, falling to Secco 11-5.

In a game that started with a blank first end team Dan Horan battled against team Forrest Drinnan.  Key shots made by both teams limited the scoring in every end.  In a nail bitter over eight ends it was team Horan coming out ahead 6-5.
