Super League: Beauchamp mounts comeback

Kootenay Savings Super League continued its third week of action with two close games and two blow outs last week.

Kootenay Savings Super League continued its third week of action with two close games and two blow outs last week.

Justin Umpherville, seized control early against Russ Beauchamp’s Mixed team, leading 5-2 after five. But things changed dramatically in the sixth; with Beauchamp laying two, Umpherville attempted a come-around freeze with his last stone, only to see it stay straight, bumping a Beauchamp stone in the house, for a free draw for four.

Umpherville stuck with his aggressive style, but the crafty Beauchamp was up to the task, stealing the seventh and eighth ends for a 12-5 win.

Corvus Construction Mixed team, skipped by Deane Horning was firing on all cylinders against Team Albo, stealing deuces in the second and third ends to lead 7-2 after five. The ice was giving Albo trouble, over-curling with his last rock in the sixth, picking in the seventh, and facing an impregnable wall of granite in the eighth for more Horning steals, and a handshaking 13-2 drubbing.

Myron Nichol and Team Fines had a classic game, with no team scoring more than a single point in any end. Nichol stole the third, fourth and fifth ends for an early 4-1 lead, but Fines battled back to be down 5-4 without coming home.

Fines made a nice come around draw to the button with his last rock, but Myron coolly followed his path with just enough weight to tap Fines to the back of the fourfoot to sit shot stone for an entertaining 6-4 victory.

Team VanYzerloo and Heather Nichol waged a back and forth game with many lead changes and all tied up 6-6 after seven ends. VanYzerloo broke it open with a steal of three in the ninth, then ran Nichol out of rocks for an 11-7 win.
