In Kootenay Savings Super League action Desiree Schmidt’s team continued their impressive play as of late, as they upset the second-place rink, West Kootenay Mechanical, skipped by Myron Nichol 8-4.

The ladies made several nice run-back-double takeouts to score multiple points in this game. Schmidt is now riding a three game win streak.

The Rob Ferguson rink dismantled Fred Thomson and his 5N-Plus squad from Nelson 9-3. The difference in this one came early with the match tied at one in the third end, and Thomson having last rock advantage, Ferguson was laying five. Thomson tried a double raise, which was a little too heavy, allowing Ferguson to steal five. The 6-1 disadvantage was too much for Thomson to overcome; the teams shook hands after 8 ends.

The Ken Fines rink from Trail pulled off a mild upset as they were victorious over Brad Morehouse and the young guns from Castlegar. The lead changed three times in this match before Fines made two perfect draws in the seventh end to take three points, and then stole two more in the eighth frame to take a 10-6 lead and force an early end.

Kootenay Savings Super League resumes Thursday night at the Trail Curling Club.
