Kootenay Savings curling: Super League games go down to wire

For the first time this year in the Kootenay Savings Super League, all four games went the full 10 ends.

It was a night of close calls, and nail-biting matches as every game came down to the last rock. For the first time this year in the Kootenay Savings Super League, all four games went the full 10 ends.

Team Albo was taking on Team Brost Autoworx and after early lead changes, skip Desiree Borsato took advantage of some Albo misses for steals in the middle ends for a 8-3 lead.  Skip Darrin Albo righted his ship with a three in the eighth and a steal in the ninth to be one down coming home without the hammer, but Brost third Brittany Palmer welded consecutive shots on the button to leave Albo no chance to complete the comeback and an 8-7 Brost Autoworx win.

Maglio Mens started quick against Team Fines, and kept a slight lead throughout the game, leading to Maglio Mens running Fines out of rocks in the 10th and a 9-7 win.

Team Ferguson, facing Maglio Ladies, also got out of the gate quick, scoring a three in the first, and stealing the second. Skip Heather Nichol made some perfect come around draws for steals in the middle ends to take a 7-6 lead after nine, but in the 10th her last rock slid agonizingly to the back of the four foot, leaving skip Rob Ferguson room to draw for his two and a nail biting 8-7 Ferguson win.

In another closely fought match, Rellish Transport got the best of Team Nichol, 7-5.
