Big swings in Trail Retirees Curling

The rocks were curling hard last week in Trail Retirees curling.

The rocks were curling hard last week in Trail Retirees curling.

On a day that saw the rocks curl about seven feet, it was team Dan Horan up by three after seven ends over team Serge Pasquali. With that much curl, guards were difficult to position, but team Pasquali managed to hide a couple of rocks behind cover. Team Horan limited the damage to two in eight for the 7–6 win and a share of top spot.

In a low scoring game between team Forrest Drinnan and Kevin Oliver the turning point was in the sixth end. Guido Babuin, skipping the team Oliver, made a fantastic raise for one against a couple of Drinnan counters.  Make the final 6–5 for Oliver.

In a see-saw battle between Alvin Caron and Murray Walsh it came down to the eighth end. Walsh with advantage of last rock could not capitalized, as Caron stole a single for the win, 6–5 and hand Walsh his first loss.

Team Ernie Brown faced off against team Clare Coleman on a sheet of ice that provided great curl and speed.  Team Brown took advantage in the fourth end to come away with a five ender.  Coleman went on the offence but gave up steals of one in the fifth and sixth for a 10-2 Brown victory.

Team Pat Burke battled the Primo Secco foursome in a low scoring game.  It came down to the last rock, tied after seven and Burke with hammer.  A simple draw to the 4 foot gave Burke the win, 5–4, and a share of the penthouse with Walsh and Horan.

A tight game between teams Harvey Handley and Brett Rakuson was broken open in the seventh end.  A steal of three in seven gave Rakuson a four point lead. Handley could only manage a pair in eight, make the final 7–5 Rakuson.
