Three teams leap-frogged an idle Schmidt team to create a three-way tie for first place in the Kootenay Savings Super League, Thursday.

Three teams leap-frogged an idle Schmidt team to create a three-way tie for first place in the Kootenay Savings Super League, Thursday.

With skip Deane Horning back at the helm, 5N Plus kept the pressure on Team Albo, leaving skip Darrin Albo flummoxed as 5N Plus stole one in each of the third, fourth and fifth ends before Albo could reply. In the sixth, Albo made a delicate draw through a port to the four foot for one, but 5N Plus stormed right back with a four-ender in the seventh for a 9-2 victory.

Team Nichol and Maglio Mens traded deuces for the first four ends, before Maglio skip, Russ Beauchamp just missed a hit and roll to the four foot to give Nichol a steal of two in the fifth. Russ got back on track in the eighth, making a delicate tap back for two, but had a pick on his last rock in the ninth, allowing an easy draw for four and a 12-6 Nichol win.

After Maglio Ladies skip, Theresa Hiram, missed a tough double take-out in the second to allow Team Ferguson a free draw for three, Hiram calmly made a hit and stick for one in the third, then stole the fourth to tie the game 3-3. Skip Rob Ferguson, using his big take-out weight, ran a double in the fifth for two, and again in the seventh, only this time for a four ender, cruising late to a 9-4 Ferguson win.

Team Morehouse steamed out to an early 5-0 lead over Team Fines. But Skip Brad Morehouse was wide on a fourth end double take-out, allowing Team Fines a free draw for three. The teams traded singles in the fifth and sixth, before a wild seventh in which Jackson, facing five opposition stones with his last rock, corner froze to a wide open Morehouse shot rock, leaving Morehouse with a hand-shaking take-out for five, but the rock picked soon out of skip Brad’s hand, giving Team Fines a steal of one and new life.  However, that life soon ebbed as Morehouse made a clutch draw to the four foot for one in the eighth, then stole two in the ninth to take a 9-5 win.

Team Nichol has this weeks bye.
