CURLING SUPERLEAGUE: League standings tighten up with wins by CDC and DLE

Wins by Child Development Centre and Douglas Lake Equipment have created a log jam at the top of the Quesnel Curling Superleague standings.

With 24 shopping days left until Christmas, the leader board in the Quesnel Curling Superleague tightened up after Wednesday night’s action, as four teams now sit with 5-3 records.

Service Electric headed into Wednesday night’s action with a 5-2 record as they faced Child Development Centre with a 4-3 record.  

At the end of the night both teams found themselves with a 5-3 record as the Service Electric foursome ended up being de-energized by the CDC kids in a close game that ended with an electrifying eighth end with the score knotted at four.  

CDC pulled the plug on Service Electric to score a single for the 5-4 win and a share of the lead in the league standings.

Handi Storage also brought their record to 5-3 with a convincing 7-2 win over Billy Barker Casino.

The action on sheet B saw the Handi crew, with a brand new permanent front end, hand the Casino crew, wearing their new team blouses, another loss and a 4-4 record on the season.

Sheet D saw another close game, with A&W taking control early after stealing two points in the first end against the Investor’s Group foursome.

The IG gang kept the game close and after scoring two in the eighth end to tie the game, just couldn’t come up with the big shot in the extra end and A&W swept away with an 8-7 win to improve to 4-4 on the season.

Investor’s Group also sits at 4-4 on the season.

Over on sheet E, the surging Douglas Lake Equipment foursome, led by skip Vic Leblanc, improved their record to 5-3 to also sit at the top of the leaderboard, with a win over Cariboo Pulp and Paper who drop to 2-6 on the year.

The DLE foursome took the game in an extra-end thriller, that saw the Kubota boys come from behind to grind the Pulp foursome to an 11-10 finish.

The feature match saw some big ends scored by both teams.
