Super League Curling: Beauchamp on a roll

Russ Beauchamp’s mixed team continued to roll, winning three straight with their latest victory over Teams Fines.

Kootenay Savings Super League saw only six teams in action last week, as the Justin Umpherville rink participated in the Kamloops Crown of Curling, thus giving their scheduled opposition, Myron Nichol, the week off.

Russ Beauchamp’s mixed team continued to roll, winning three straight with their latest victory over Teams Fines. The game was quite even, with Team Beauchamp holding a slight 4-3 lead after five, and a 5-4 lead after eight, But Russ broke it open with a three spot in the ninth, then ran Fines out of rocks for an 8-4 win.

Team Albo was looking to take advantage of a depleted Heather Nichol Team as Skip Darrin Albo counted a deuce in the third and made a perfect raise take-out in the fifth for three and a 5-4 lead. But with Heather unavailable, intern skip Lori Karn had other ideas, manufacturing her own three in the eighth, then stole the ninth and 10th for a 10-6 comeback victory.

The last two undefeated teams clashed in an epic game. Team VanYzerloo and Corvus Construction traded deuces, then blanks to start the game. Skip Bill VanYzerloo slid too far on an open draw in the sixth, settling for a single point to keep the game tied 3-3. VanYzerloo took his first lead of the game with another deuce in the eighth, and looked to have Corvus forced to take one in the ninth, but a last rock take-out to lay two overcurled, jamming on Bills second shot while the shooter rolled out, leaving Skip Deane Horning a free draw for three and a 7-5 lead coming home. Corvus Construction’s second Kevin Nesbitt and third Brittany Palmer both ran doubles in the 10th, eventually running VanYzerloo  out of rocks, to hold on to a 7-5 win, and alone in first place.
