Serge Pasquali’s team cruised into Mondays game as the only undefeated team in the Trail Men’s Retirees curling.

Serge Pasquali’s team cruised into Mondays game as the only undefeated team in the Trail  Men’s Retirees curling.

Dan Horan’s team, minus Dan, was skipped by Alvin Caron the team’s third. A stunning start for the Horan-Caron team saw them score five in the first end. The shocked Pasquali team came back with three in the second to close the gap.

But the teams traded points the rest of the way giving the Horan/Caron foursome the 10-7 win.

The Harvey Handley foursome was looking for its first win against  Forest Drinnan. But after an early lead the Drinnan foursome stormed back with five in the fourth end. Yet, the Handley team tied it up with two in the fifth and stole eight more points over the last three ends for a 13-5 victory.

Coke Koyanagi’s foursome looked to topple the high-flying Brett Rakuson team. With Koyanagi leading 5-3 in the seventh, Rakuson took two to tie the game, but surrendered hammer to Koyanagi coming home. Yet, Rakuson was able to draw behind cover and sit shot rock, while a disgruntled Koyanagi failed to knock it out, giving Rakuson the 6-5 victory and a share of first place.

Wayne Wyton’s team faced the Murray Walsh foursome in a well played game. Tied at two, Wyton gave up three in the fourth and Walsh rode that 5-2 lead to an 8 to 3 win. Sometimes in a game of inches, the score is a mile apart.

In another tight game, Clare Coleman’s foursome faced Jim Stewart’s team. Coleman broke a 3-3 tie with a hit and stick in the fifth end for three points to turn the tide on a closely contested match. The Stewart foursome could not recoup the three-ender losing 6-5 to Coleman.

The Tom Hall foursome squared off against the Primo Secco team. The Hall side almost overcame a steal of three in the third, but in the eighth Secco was able to make a clean takeout with his last rock, scoring one to take the game 6-5.
