Jewitt foursome climb the ladder

The rocks were colliding in Trail Mens Retiree Curling action as Bill Jewitt’s foursome climbed into second place last week.

The rocks were colliding in Trail Mens Retiree Curling action as Bill Jewitt’s foursome climbed into second place in fourth-quarter standings last week.

Jewitt’s team scored four in the third end then stole four more points in the next three ends to take a commanding 8 – 3 lead over Harvey Handley’s foursome.

It’s Jewitt’s fifth win against two losses, to sit one point behind the Koyanagi rink in Retiree standings.

Handley’s team fought back in the seventh end putting seven stones in the house against a single Jewitt stone. But Jewitt stole one, as he drew down to the back of the house to sit shot and Harvey was unable to make the double take out for a possible 8-ender.  The miss proved the end for Handley as Jewitt closed out the game 9-3

Cal McKerracher faced Stan Trozzo in a high-scoring, well-played game.  Tied at 4-4 after five ends, the McKerracher rink with hammer scored four to take the lead 8-4 after six ends.

Trozzo fought back with two points in the seventh and forced McKerracher to throw his last rock in the eighth. The veteran skip made sure of the point and took the game 9-6.

The Primo Secco rink stole a point in the first and second ends against the Tom Hall foursome but the front end for the Hall team, Fred Romano and Serge Peloso, had draw weight all game and pressured the Secco foursome.

The Hall rink scored two in the third end and stole three in the fourth for a 5-2 lead. Primo came back with one in the fifth but gave up three in the sixth.

In the seventh, with Primo already sitting two on his final shot, Hall attempted a difficult shot for four. The takeout jammed, and the shooter rolled away, leaving Primo with a deuce.  But with the score 8 – 5 for the Hall team, the Secco four ran out of rocks.
