Retirees curling – Walsh hangs on

Trail Retiree Men’s curling played its penultimate curling matches at the Trail Curling Club this week.

Trail Retiree Men’s curling played its penultimate curling matches at the Trail Curling Club this week.

With the season winding up next week, Team Forrest Drinnan started strong with a three in the first, but the Murray Walsh foursome reeled off eight over the next five ends.  Taking a single in seven team Drinnan only needed a steal of four in eight, and much to the discomfort of team Walsh, stole three to give Walsh the win 8-7.

Pat Burke was leading Serge Pasquali 6-4 going into the eighth end.  Pat with last rock and facing three, had the fans on the edge of their seats.  Calling and making a double takeout and sitting one took the game 7–4.

The Stan Trozzo and Brett Rakuson teams were evenly matched at lead, second and third positions, but Stan was wielding a hot stick.  In a close game Stan was the difference, make the final 8–3 Trozzo.

It was all team Clare Coleman over the Harvey Handley rink.  Team Coleman was having such a good time they were the last off the ice.  Make the final 10–4 for Coleman.

In another one sided game it was team Primo Secco that beat up on team Alvin Caron.  With the score 10–2 after six ends, team Caron called it quits.

Tied after two ends the turning points were the third, fourth and fifth ends for team Dan Horan over team Kevin Oliver.  With single steals in those ends Dan put the game out of reach, and ran team Oliver out of rocks in the eighth.  Make the final 7–3 Horan.

In a game that was closer than the score would indicate, team Tom Hall beat the (Ernie-less) Brown team 10–4.

The teams play their last game of the fourth quarter on Monday, with the playoffs between the winners of each quarter going Wednesday, and the final game on Friday.
