Skips take a break in Retiree Curling

It was skips day off as Trail Retirees took to the ice at the Trail Curling Club Monday.

It was skips day off as Trail Retirees took to the ice at the Trail Curling Club Monday.

With the skips sitting out on the five-man teams, and Mel Johnson leading the Ernie Brown team against team Serge Pasquali, Mel employed the give up one and score many philosophy to lead 8-3 after seven ends.  He then ran the Pasquali side out of rocks in the eighth for the win.

Team Forrest Drinnan played a good opening end, but could only score one against the Alvin Caron foursome.

Team Caron poured it on scoring five in the next three ends.  Team Drinnan staunched the flow with a single in the fifth, but waved the white flag after seven ends with the score 9-2.

Team Dan Horan went toe-to-toe with the Wayne Wyton foursome.  In a well played game by both sides big ends were impossible to set up.  It came down to a draw to the four foot on the last rock to secure the tie for team Horan.  Make the final 6–6.

Two ends got away from the Murray Walsh foursome.  Team Jim Stewart scored five in the third and stole three in the fourth to salt away a 10–3 victory.  ‘But for two ends’, could be heard from the Walsh table after the game.

It was a short day for the Brett Rakuson rink facing the team Clare Coleman.  Coleman ahead five to one after four, stole a five spot in the fifth, then two in the sixth.  The Rakuson side packed it in at that point, make the final 12–1 for Coleman.
