An undefeated season is coming down to the final game.
Myron Nichol’s West Kootenay Mechanical rink will be looking to complete an unbeaten season in Kootenay Savings Super League play on Thursday night.
The Castlegar foursome improved its record to 12-0-3 last week with an 8-3 win over the Maglio Men. Nichol found his draw weight early and made the most of it en route to the quick win.
The Nichol rink’s hope for the undefeated season will rest on Thursday’s showdown with defending Super League champ Maple Leaf Forestry.
The game may prove to be a preview of this year’s final as well. Nichol sits in first place followed by Deane Horning’s Maple Leaf crew.
Despite playing without their skip, Maple Leaf Forestry rolled to a 9-3 win over Performance Fitness to keep pace with the league leader.
The top two teams will meet in the final in two weeks.
Brian LeMoel’s rink is hoping to have as say in the playoff title. LeMoel remains one point behind Maple Leaf Forestry in third place.
A win by their rink Thursday night and a loss by Maple Leaf would vault LeMoel into the “A” final playoff.
His foursome continued its fine play this year as they dominated a shorthanded Jill Winters’ crew with a 7-2 win.
Winters, whose rink includes Trail’s Samantha Almquist, is currently in Cloverdale competing at the B.C. Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The team dropped its first two games on Monday.
Thursday’s 7 p.m. draw will mark the final regular season draw of the schedule.
The playoff pairings will be determine following this week’s slate of games.
