In Trail Men’s Retiree curling action at the Trail Curling Rink last week, the Tyson foursome continued its dominant play, while the Gould, Handley, Koyanagi, and Horan rinks also picked up wins.

Cliff Tyson’s rink jumped out to a commanding 5-0 lead after three ends against Wayne Wyton’s rink. However in the fourth end, Wyton made two double takeouts to score three and close the gap to 5-3.  But the powerhouse Tyson rink would not be intimidated, and the Wyton rink could find no more magic.

Scoring points in each of the last four ends, Tyson went on to an 11–3 victory.

Dan Horan’s team had a slim 3-1 lead going into the fifth end against Jim Stewart’s rink.

But the Stewart foursome rallied for three in the fifth to take the lead 4-3.

The Horan rink came back with two in the sixth end and then stole one in the seventh to retake a 6-4 lead. Down to their last rock, Stewart needed to draw to the four foot to count two, but his rock came up short, handing Horan the 6-5 victory.

Coke Koyanagi outdueled Robin Siddall’s rink employing a classic curling strategy of scoring two points with the hammer, and giving up one without the hammer as they doubled up Siddall 8–4.

Serge Pasquali and Harvey Handley’s teams played a tight game but lost opportunitines by both teams was the dominant theme. In the third end the Pasquali team stole two points to take a 3-2 lead. The Handley rink, with rocks in play only managed one in the fourth end to tie the game at three. The Pasquali team gave up steals of one in the fifth and two in the sixth to fall behind 5-3. Struggling back with two in the seventh end. The Handley team, up by one with hammer in the eighth scored one to seal the victory, 7-5.

Lefty Gould’s team played a near flawless game against Tom Hall’s foursome. The Hall rink could not get on track from the start and fell behind early. After six ends it was clearly the Gould team that dominated and handshakes ended the game. The final score was 9-1 for team Gould.
