Brooms, stones and ice cream cones

The super league was back out on the ice making things interesting at the curling rink.

Super League curlers were throwing stones again last Wednesday at the curling rink.

First up, on sheet B, A&W had it’s way with Karin’s Deli.

Karin’s Deli was running late right from the get go and before they knew it they were down 5-0 after two ends. After getting one in the fourth, they decided to shake hands, leaving it at A&W 8, Karin’s Deli 1.

Over on sheet C, Cariboo Pulp was taking on Investors Group.

Cariboo Pulp got a key steal of two in the seventh to come home three up and then barely ran Investors Group out of rocks coming home in an exciting, well-played game with Investors Group taking three points, which was not enough to upset Cariboo Pulp with their seven.

The two new teams in the Super League squared off on sheet D.

Down four after six ends, Frank’s decided to pull out the heavy artillery scoring six in the last two ends to seal the victory. Free ice cream was handed out to all the fans who watched the game to celebrate Frank’s 8-6 victory.

It was alphabet soup on sheet E, with CDC and JAR facing each other down.

The lesson of the day for CDC was respect and playing the JAR foursome was the test. Luckily though, the CDC played JAR carefully and continues with the two win streak. CDC kept their streak by three points over JAR, with  7-4 finish.

The night featured a doozy of a match between DLE and Billy Barker.

The feature match went a full nine rounds with each team exchanging knock out punched, until DLE threw the final punch in the extra end, eliminating the B-boys and the kid with his backhoe, burying with a 9-8 final.

The Super League teams will clash once again next week, at 7:30 p.m., same bat time, same bat channel.
