Kootenay Savings Super League curling: Schmidt rink dominates

Tuesday Kootenay Savings Super League men’s club seeks curlers.

The Kootenay Savings Super League was bolstered by the addition of the Ken Fines rink last week bringing the total number of teams in the league to nine.

Unfortunately for Fines, the Desiree Schmidt rink was not in a welcoming mood in Super League action Thursday.

Fines started well, making a beautiful come around tap to the four foot to take one in the second. But the Schmidt rink was relentless, making all their shots and keeping the Fines crew against the ropes, stealing two in the fourth, four in the fifth and three in the eighth for a dominating 14-3 victory.

The Maglio Men’s rink started strong against the Rob Ferguson foursome, taking one in the first and stealing one in the second to take a 2-0 lead, but Ferguson battled back with a double take-out in the third for three.

Maglio skip Don Bedard deftly drew to the button in the fourth to tie the game, however he came up light in the sixth, giving Ferguson a steal of six, to seal an 11-3 victory.

The Darrin Albo and Brad Morehouse rinks traded single points all the way to the 10th, before Albo made a delicate tap back for two and a nail biting 6-5 victory.

The final game of the night saw the Myron Nichol rink take control early against the Maglio Ladies with two in the first and a steal of two in the second, then a steal of three in the sixth end, cruising to a 10-5 win.

Dean Horning’s 5N Plus rink had the bye.

Starting Oct. 11, the Kootenay Savings Trail Super League will curl exclusively Thursday nights at 7 p.m.
