Retirees curling: Rakuson dominates

Brett Rakuson broke open a one-point lead over the Clare Coleman rink with multiple point steals in the fifth, sixth and seventh ends

Brett Rakuson broke open a one-point lead over the Clare Coleman rink with multiple point steals in the fifth, sixth and seventh ends to build an insurmountable lead and take an 11-4 victory at the Trail Curling Club.

Ernie Brown’s team stormed out to a 5-0 lead after two ends over the Tom Hall foursome. Brown’s front end kept the pressure on all game, while the Hall side chased every shot, until Brown emerged victorious 11-5.

Primo Secco’s team started strong, stealing the first three ends over the Dan Horan rink.  Each team could only manage a single point with hammer for the rest of the game, until Secco ran Horan out of rocks in the eighth for a 7-2 win.

Jim Stewart’s team faced the Forest Drinnan foursome in a close game.  Both teams built promising ends, but misses by the skips kept the score close, before Drinnan eked out the win.

Pat Fennel faced Harvey Handley, and the Handley side never scored more than one in any end, but six singles beat the five that the Fennel side put up.

Murray Walsh’s team built a five-point lead over team Serge Pasquali after seven ends. Pasquali made a valiant effort in the eighth end but came up short in an 8-6 final.
