Rellish relentless in playoff win

The Kootenay Savings Super League playoffs commenced last week with the top seeds looking to advance.

The Kootenay Savings Super League playoffs commenced last week with the top seeds looking to advance.

Number-one seed Deane Horning had his Rellish Transport team firing on all cylinders against Team Fines and interim skip Dave Kelly. Rellish was relentless, and never let Team Fines get on the board, cruising to an 11-0 win.

Skip Heather Nichol and her Maglio Ladies team had the early edge on Brost Autoworx, leading 4-2 after three, but Skip Desiree Borsato righted the ship with three in the fourth, followed by steals in the fifth, sixth and seventh, leading to a 9-5 Brost win.

The second-seed skip Rob Ferguson and third Brian Lemoel were injured and missing from their tilt against Russ Beauchamp’s Maglio Men’s team, but Joe Ferguson took over the reins and shot lights out. The turning point in the 8-4 Ferguson win was the third end. Beauchamp was facing three Ferguson rocks in a 1-1 tie, when his last rock draw picked sideways entering the house, raising another Ferguson stone for a steal of four, and a five point swing, instead of a Maglio single.

Skip Darrin Albo had a great game against third-seed Team Nichol, using last rock advantage for a couple of three enders, the last one in the ninth, sealing a 10-6 upset Albo win.

Rellish Transport play Brost Autoworx in one A side semi-final, while Team Albo faces Team Ferguson in the other. Last week’s four losing rinks drop to the B side.
