Kootenay Savings Super League: Tight race for top spot

Team Rellish Transport leads the Super League with 11points, followed by Ferguson 10 points and Albo 9 points.

Kootenay Savings Super League saw Team Albo make a tenth-end circus shot for the steal, and a point, to keep Albo within striking distance of the league-leading Team Rellish Transport.

The game was 4-4 after 4 ends, and 5-5 after 6. After Albo scored a deuce, Team Fines seemed to take control with a big four-ender in the eighth. But Skip Darrin Albo drew threw a narrow port to the four foot for one in the ninth, then made a beautiful hit and roll behind a wall of granite to steal one in the tenth for the 9-9 tie.

Skip Rob Ferguson had his A-game going against Team Myron Nichol, making every draw and hit-and-roll possible, leaving Nichol impossible shots to the four foot for an easy 7-3 win.

Team Rellish Transport was without skip Deane Horning and third Don Freschi again, who were in Red Deer in a bonspeil where they reached the semi-finals, but spare skip Rick Brown and the rest of the team kept relentless pressure on Team Maglio Ladies. Skip Heather Nichol, while twice staring at four Rellish rocks, made perfect come around draws to the four foot in the first and second ends, only to see the onslaught continue and a 9-2 Team Rellish Transport win.

It was a tough night for the Maglio team, as Desiree Borsato and her Brost Autoworx rink (with spare Terry Bublitz) completely dominated for a six ends in a 12-2 thrashing of Maglio Mens.

Team Rellish Transport leads the Super League with 11points, followed by Ferguson 10 points and Albo 9 points. Action continues tonight at the Trail Curling Club at 7 p.m.
