It was an epic battle this past week in the Kootenay Savings Super League between Team Ferguson and Brost Autoworx.

Team Brost were up 2-0 after three ends, thanks to a single, a blank and a steal. Skip Rob Ferguson jumped in the lead with a delicate come around tap for three in the fourth. After skip Desiree Borsato made a perfect draw for one in the seventh to tie the game at four, Team Ferguson blanked the eighth and ninth to set up last rock in the 10th.

Skip Ferguson had an open draw to the eight-foot for the win, but just as the brushers lifted their brooms in victory, the winning rock picked straight sideways onto an opposing rock, giving Brost Autoworx the steal and a 5-4 win.

Team Nichol and Maglio Mens were tied at three after three ends, but skip Myron Nichol showed no mercy to his opposing skip Russ Beauchamp, manufacturing steals in the fifth, sixth and seventh, leading the way to a 10-4 Team Nichol win.

Team Fines was in tough against Rellish Transport. Fresh off qualifying for the Mens Provincials, Skip Deane Horning executed a long double raise, double take-out for four in the first, followed by a raise take-out of a Fines shot stone in the fourth, leading to another four. Skip Ken Fines made a raise tap for two in the fifth, but had no answer to the Brier type shots Horning was making, as Team Rellish put up a three in 6, then stole the seventh for a 12-4 win.

Team Albo had their way with Team Maglio Ladies, kicking a field goal in the 1st, followed by single steals in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 8th ends, on their way to a 10-2 win.

Playoffs start Jan. 9.
