Nothing says St. Patrick's Day more than green berets and large

St. Pat’s Open Bonspiel

Whether they were relying on the luck of the Irish, skill or another pint of Guiness, everyone enjoyed St. Pat's bonspiel.

Whether they were relying on the luck of the Irish, skill or another pint of Guiness, teams with an array of skills and costume took part in the St. Patrick’s Day open bonspiel at the Quesnel Curling Club last weekend, bringing a spot of colour (green) and a bit of humour to the tournament.

In the A event final, sponsored by Dunkley Lumber, The Blackmore rink came up against the Pagurut rink, in a lopsided bout that Blackmore dominated 8-2.

The Pagurut team allowed Blackmore to steal four points in the fifth end to take the lead 7-1. The teams traded points in ends six and seven, until Pagurut conceded after seven.

The Havens and Waffle rink played the B event, sponsored by Franks Super Market in a super close game with Havens just edging out Waffle.

Havens stole points in ends two and five to lead 4-1 in the fifth end, but Waffle scored three points in the sixth to tie the game. The teams traded points in ends seven and eight, forcing the game to extra ends.

In the final throws of the extra ends, Waffle delivered right to the button, forcing Havens to chip Waffle off the button and in the four foot ring for the win.

In the Quesnel Golf course sponsored C event Wawryk took on Pethik, the later taking down the former 7-4.

Wawryk allowed team Pethic to go up five points early in the game.

Team Wawryk came back to within three points in the final end, but ran out of rocks, leaving Pethik on top.

In the D event, sponsored by J.D. Meats and Grocery, Freeman took down Cindric 9-6 in a high scoring game.

 

Both teams counted three and four enders. Team Freeman scored four points in sixth end to lead 7-6, then added two more in end seven to be three points up after the final end.
