Horan wins with dramatic final stone

In a game defined by one end, team Ernie Brown scored five in the second end against team Serge Pasquali.

The Trail Retiree Men’s Curling was back in the hack.

In a game defined by one end, team Ernie Brown scored five in the second end against team Serge Pasquali. That lead held up all game as team Brown couldn’t miss a shot even though it looked like they tried to. Make the final 8–4 for Brown.

Team Murray Walsh took and early 4-0 lead over team Harvey Handley. Carrying that four point spread into the eighth end team Walsh ran the Handley foursome out of rocks to cap a 9–5 win.

In a marathon eight-end game, the Jim Stewart foursome squared off against team Clare Coleman. A steal of four in the fourth end for Stewart vaulted him into the lead and he carried that lead into the eighth.

The Coleman rink down by two without hammer were sitting four as Stewart threw his last rock. A ‘hit and stick’ for the win turned into a hit and roll, and it took a measure to determine two for Coleman and a 9-9 tie.

Team Dan Horan jumped out to a 4-0 lead after four over Pat Fennell’s rink. In what should have been the ‘TSN Turning Point’ in the fifth end, Pat made a terrific double takeout to score five.

Down by one on his last shot, Dan had to make a soft weight take out of a Fennell rock almost buried on the four foot. The sweeping was called on and off a couple of  times as the rock passed the last guard and bumped the shot stone just out of the house. Horan picked up three to take the game 8-6.

In a high scoring game between team Brett Rakuson and team Tom Hall, it was a missed draw for one by Tom in the third end that proved the difference.

The Rakuson team then forced the game, and team Hall could only chase. Make the final 10–7 team Rakuson.
