Kootenay Savings Super League had a full night of curling last week at the Trail Curling Club.

Kootenay Savings Super League had a full night of curling last week at the Trail Curling Club.

The match of the night pitted Team Brost Autoworx against a streaking Team Ferguson.

With the game knotted at three, skip Rob Ferguson made one of his patented double take-outs for two in the sixth.

Borsato was forced to score one in the seventh and down 5-4 without the hammer and throwing final stone, Borsato tried to hit and roll off a corner rock and sit shot rock guarded underneath her second shot to lay two, but the thrown rock didn’t curl enough, rolling out, leaving Ferguson an open hit for two to win the game 7-4.

Myron Nichol and his rink went up against Maglio Mens this past week. Nichol had third Gary Beaudry in the lineup for the first time this year, with Gary in mid-season form, executing double take-outs and perfect guards, and in the process limiting Maglio’s chances at any big ends.

With Skip Myron just having to throw guards, or come around draws himself, Maglio’s Beauchamp was left with difficult or near impossible access to the four-foot as Nichol cruised to a 12-3 win.

Maglio Ladies took on Team Albo in a match that was closer than the final score. Skip Heather Nichol made a nice come around tap for two in the first, followed by Darrin Albo’s hit for two in the second. Nichols draw for one in the third slid inches too far, giving Albo a single steal, but it was Heather’s last rock pick in the fourth, raising another Albo stone for a steal of two and a 5-2 deficit, instead of their own deuce that hurt Maglio Ladies the most.

The teams traded deuces for the next four ends before Nichol just missed a double take-out leaving Albo a steal in the ninth and a 9-6 win.

Team Fines was in tough against Team Rellish Transport Services with skip Deane Horning and third Don Freschi fresh off their good showing in the Vernon Cash ‘Spiel. Team Fines wasn’t intimidated, with interim skip Dave Kelly drawing for two in the first, then forcing Horning to take one in the second.

But Team Rellish got things rolling after that, stealing the third, fourth and fifth ends for a 6 -2 lead. Kelly made a perfect through the port take-out for one in the sixth, but Horning came back with two in the seventh, forcing Team Fines to concede for a 8-3 Rellish Transport win.
