In Trail Retiree’s Curling action the Ernie Brown squandered a 7-2 lead against the Clare Coleman foursome last week at the Trail Curling Club.

The Coleman side strategically blanked the fifth end.  Down by only two after seven, and sitting two with Ernie’s last rock to come. The Brown’s takeout rubbed the guard and missed shot rock to make the final a 7-7 draw.

Offence was the name of the game in the Serge Pasquali and Alvin Caron tilt.  Team Pasquali trailed going into the eighth end by one with hammer.  What should have been a clean end soon got messy.  Out of the pile was a steal of one for Caron and a 9-7 victory.

Tied at two after three ends, team Wayne Wyton scored four in the fourth over team Harvey Handley.  Team Handley stole their way back to a tie after seven.  Determined not to let Handley steal his way to a tie or win, team Wyton kept the middle open for a draw for one, to make the final 7-6.

The Brett Rakuson foursome faced the Primo Secco bandits. The bandits stole the first five ends by getting hits and rolls, wicks and rolls.  After scoring one in the sixth end the Rakuson side put up their hands and surrendered, making the final 8-1.
