Trail Men’s Curling: Soukeroff leads rink to Club title

The Trail Mens Curling Club wrapped up its season on the weekend.

The Trail Mens Curling Club wrapped up its season on the weekend, with a couple of familiar foursomes vying in the final of the Club championship.

The Larry Kotyk rink made its appearance in the final for the third year in a row with Richard Faunt sparing for third Pat Burke, Dave Muir at second, and Craig Fines as lead. They faced the Russ Beauchamp rink, without Beauchamp who was away at the Grand Forks Mixed bonspiel.  With Marlin Fredericks at third, Dennis Lemoel second, and Terry Alston lead, the team picked up young ace Spencer Soukeroff to skip.

It turned out to be a good move. In the TSN turning point, Soukeroff faced four Kotyk stones in the first end without last rock. He calmly hit a corner stone and rolled perfectly behind a center guard, leaving skip Kotyk with a difficult run back that just missed, for a steal of one.

Kotyk never got going after that, with the teams shaking hands after seven, and a 7-3 Beauchamp win.

The Men’s club consisted of 10 teams this past year, playing a double round-robin from October to March. The Ken Lunde rink won the overall league title with Faunt third, Grant Gariepy, second, and Pat Fennell, lead. The team had an impressive 15 wins, one loss and two ties on the season, their only loss coming on the last week of the year to the second place Brian Lemoel rink with Rick Brown-third, Alfie Semenoff-second, and Dave Kendrick-lead.

Also on Saturday was the Hams n’ Bacon ‘Spiel, with the Larry Kotyk rink winning the Hams and the Spencer Soukeroff team second. On the Bacon side, it was the Ken Fines rink in first followed by the Lunde team.
