The skips took a day off at Retirees Men’s Curling action earlier this week.

In the closest match of the day, the Clare Coleman rink pulled off an unlikely comeback against the Coke Koyanagi foursome.  Trailing by two going into the eighth end with hammer, team Coleman came up with a big end, scoring three for the 8–7 victory.

Team Handley jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first end over Team Walsh, but Walsh stormed back and scored 10 over the next six ends, to roll to a 10-5 win.

Team Brett Rakuson took on Team Tom Hall and it was a low scoring first five ends.  In the sixth, a stellar takeout by Jamie Forbes through a tight offset port lead to a steal of two on the way to a 11-2 drubbing.

In a back-and-forth game that featured steals in four ends, Team Pat Fennell duelled with team Forrest Drinnan.

The turning point was a steal of three in the fourth end by team Fennell to go up 5-3. They’d steal another one in the fifth on their way to the 8–6 final.
