Lady Luck was smiling on team Brown, more particularly on second, Mel Debriske. The rubs and rolls were all one-sided, team Walsh could not buy a break. Team Brown slinks away with a 7 – 5 victory.

Team Pasquali, skipped by Stan Trozzo took four in the second end and never looked back. Team Rakuson skipped by Bill Van Beek kept rocks in play every end but could not score a big end. Make the final 9 – 4.

Team Noble, skipped by new to retiree curling Bob Stewart, made short work of team Horan. Team Horan made it on the board, but a well called and executed game gave the Noble side a 6 – 1 victory.

Team Drinnan, skipped by Bob Menin took a slim two point lead into the seventh end against team Fennell, skipped by Cal McKerracher. Bob made his last two shots in the seventh to take three and take an insurmountable five point lead into the eighth. Make the final 8 – 2.
