In Trail Retiree Men’s Curling, the Stan Trozzo rink was firing on all four cylinders as they took out the Forest Drinnan squad at the Trail Curling Club last week.
Leading 2 – 1 going into the third end, the Drinnan foursome could only watch the final shot, as Trozzo drew into the four-foot rings for a big three point end.
After trading single points for three ends the score was 5 – 4 for Trozzo, but the five-time winner of the Bill Heicket Trophy broke it open in the seventh with another three point end. The Drinnan foursome could only muster a single point in the eighth to make the final score 8 – 5 for Trozzo.
The Gord Bamford front end put on a clinic of rock placement, setting up end after end. The Harvey Handley team fought all game and scored six points, but the stealing ability of the Bamford team led them to a 9 – 6 win.
One big end to start the game for the Coke Koyanagi rink was the difference in an otherwise tight game. Koyanagi scored five in the first end against the Lefty Gould rink and that would make all the difference as Koyanagi curled to a 9 – 5 victory.
In a nail biter where neither team could post a big score or steal a point the Dan Horan team out scored the Bill Jewitt team 7 – 6.
Why not come down to the Trail Curling Club Monday or Wednesday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and watch some ‘Brier-Like’ action?
