Super League: Horning rink back on top

The Kootenay Savings Super League wrapped up at the Trail Curling Club Thursday

The Kootenay Savings Super League wrapped up at the Trail Curling Club Thursday with a familiar skip at the top of the heap.

Deane Horning and his Corvus Construction rink of third Brittney Horbul, second Kevin Nesbitt and lead Nicole Beetstra proved their regular season dominance was no fluke, drubbing an over-matched Ken Fines Team in the A final. Corvus struck big with their last rock advantages, putting up three and four enders while holding Team Fines to one deuce and a few singles on their way to a 12-4 win and the 2015-16 Kootenay Savings Super League Championship.

The B Final saw Team Beauchamp, with Brian Lemoel skipping for a vacationing Russ, against Team Myron Nichol go down to the last rock. Team Beauchamp started quick with a large four-ender in the first, but Myron responded with a three, and had a 7-5 lead after a steal of two in the sixth. Lemoel tied the game in the seventh, then facing three buried Nichol stones, made a Russ-like shot with his last in the eighth, angle raising his own stone perfectly to the button for a steal of one.

Team Beauchamp stole another in the ninth, then was able to hold Nichol to only a single in the 10th for an exciting 9-8 victory.

Team Justin Umpherville were taking on Team Heather Nichol in one of the C Consolation games, and just like every game that night, started strong with a four ender. Skip Heather made a nice draw for her single in two, then made two more perfect draws in the third, leading to a steal of three and a tie game. Umpherville bounced right back with his own three, then scored again in the fifth, seventh and eighth ends, on their way to a hand shaking 13-5 win.

In the other C Consolation, Team Bill van Yzerloo were on fire against an inconsistent Team Darrin Albo. Following the theme of the night, van Yzerloo started with a huge six ender, then stole the third, fourth, and fifth ends, cruising to an easy 9-1 win.

Best of luck to all the Super League curlers playing in the BC playdowns, and a special thank you to Times Contributor Richard Faunt.
