BIG WINNER IS NOSEWORTHY FOURSOME WITH $2,210.50

 

After 71 games since early October, there is finally a Champion declared for the Season of SuperLeague play.   There follows the linescore and highlights for the Final Game in SuperLeague at the RE/MAX Centre:

 

Final Game; ICE #5:

 

TEAM PAUL HARVEY       000  100  12  0  =  4

TEAM NOSEWORTHY*   101  011  00  1   =  5

 

A few dozen spectators at the RE/MAX Centre endured some rusty play before a thrilling finish to the Championship Game between Team Paul Harvey and Team Noseworthy; the third time that they have faced off this year.   Team Noseworthy was the decisive (11-3) winner in the SuperLeague round robin game (Draw #5 on November 8).   In the 1 vs. 2 Page Playoff Game on January 11, Team Noseworthy was again the victor; this time by a 6-3 score with the decisive points coming on a steal of 3 in the first end.   This second encounter earned Team Noseworthy hammer (last rock) in the first end of the Championship Game.   However tonights’ Championship Game was not decided until skip Mark Noseworthy perfectly executed a double takeout in the top half of the house with the final stone of an extra end.

 

A few of the highlights follow:

  • Among the 5 singles scored by Team Noseworthy (Ross Young, lead; Peter Hollett, second; Alex Smith, third; and skip Mark Noseworthy) were miscues on blank attempts in the first and 5th ends, and a steal in the 6th when opposing skip, Paul Harvey, rolled too far hitting against a pair.
  • The third end had some drama.   Team Harvey (Mike Day, lead; Andrew Manuel, second; Steve Bragg, third; and skip Paul Harvey) were lying four when third, Rick Rowsell (substituting for Alex Smith) made a key double takeout.   Noseworthy followed with a freeze against 3 counters and picked up another steal when Harvey smashed a pack of stones at the back of the 8-foot circle but failed to move shot rock enough for a multiple count.
  • Team Harvey was down 4-1 playing the 7th end and was forced to hit against two and hope to steal a tieing pair in the 8th end.   Harvey’s only other point over the first 7 ends was also a hit against two (in the 4th end.)
  • After two missed tick-shot attempts, the 8th end was well-played by both teams until Noseworthy’s hammer — a draw to the full 4-foot circle against a pair under cover nibbling the 4-foot at 9 o’clock.   Noseworthy’s $429 hammer uncharacteristically barely made it over the hog line; and the game was headed to an extra end.
  • Team Noseworthy made a couple of double peels, but Team Harvey executed a double takeout with their last stone.   Noseworthy had a nose hit on two counters about a metre apart in the top half of the house for the win and he made no mistake in taking another SuperLeague Championship.

FUN ‘N’ FAST TO PLAY TEAM STRONG IN THE 3 vs. 4 GAME —-

—- TEAM HARVEY TO PLAY THE WINNER IN THE SEMI-FINAL

 

There follows the scores and highlights for the two games this week in SuperLeague at the RE/MAX Centre:

 

ICE #3; Tie-Breaker Game (for 4th Place):

With both teams having 7-4 round robin records, THERAPEUTIC SERVICES PHYSIOTHERAPY earned hammer in the first end by defeating TEAM STRONG 8-2 in their Round Robin Game in Draw #8 on November 29.   The tie-breaker was a different story.   The best chance the men had to score in the game was in the first end when they gave up a four!   The men chose to shake hands early giving TEAM STRONG an 8-0 victory and a berth in another sudden-death game; the 3 vs. 4 Page Playoff Game.   There are things you just can’t explain in a game like this, but (if there was a key to the victory) the Heather Strong skipped team took full advantage of some perfectly placed guards.   THERAPEUTIC SERVICES PHYSIOTHERAPY gets $245.00 for their 7 wins this SuperLeague Season.   The women are now assured of at least $845.00.

 

Team Noseworthy has earned a berth in the SuperLeague Final (and at least $1,781.50) with their win earlier this month over Team Harvey who is assured at least $1,173 and will play the Semi-Final winner.   The RE/MAX SuperLeague Champion could win as much as $2,245.50.

 

ICE #4; Make-Up Game:

In the final of the 66 round robin games, A. Harvey (skipped by Jeff Thomas) trailed the Greg Blyde Provincial Junior Championship Team 2-1 at the half.   The Seniors, however, finished powerfully in the game that saw lots of rocks in play every end.   They scored pairs with hammer in both the 5th and 7th ends while the Juniors managed just a single in the 6th when 5 rocks surrounder the button.   Down 5-3 with hammer in the 8th end, Blyde was forced to play a high-difficulty double takeout, but the result was a 6-3 final.   The win gave the Seniors $175 from a 5-6 record for their SuperLeague Season.

 

The Standings, and Winnings-to-Date, with all 66 round robin games and the 1 vs. 2 game now completed, reads:

 9 – 3     $1,781.50+  Team Mark Noseworthy

10 – 2    $1,173+       Team Paul Harvey

 

8 – 3     $880+         Fun ‘N’ Fast (skipped by Adam Boland)

FUN ‘N’ FAST FINISHES IN THIRD PLACE

 

TEAM STRONG AND THERAPEUTIC SERVICES PHYSIOTHERAPY TO PLAY TIE-BREAKER FOR LAST PLAYOFF SPOT

 

 

Last Draw, four of the six games were decided by the last rock; this week, just one of the six encounters was a nail-biter.   The night started with the 3 teams at 7-3 able to wrap up a playoff position with a win in their final game:

  • Team Mark Noseworthy won over A. Harvey and took coveted Second Place (a team with an extra life in the Page Playoff).
  • Therapeutic Services Physiotherapy lost to Team Curtis and must play a Tie-Breaker with Team Strong for Fourth Place.
  • Fun ‘N’ Fast took Third Place without having to throw a stone against McInnes Cooper (they will play a postponed game Sunday — win and Fun ‘N’ Fast gets Third Place at 8-3 but Team Noseworthy takes the higher position by virtue of their round robin head-to-head win; and a loss Sunday puts Fun ‘N’ Fast in a 3-way tie at 7-4 but they will take Third Place because of their round robin victories over both Team Strong and Therapeutic Services Physiotherapy).

The two other teams still in contention at 6-4 when the night started were Team Colin Thomas (who was eliminated — shutout — by First Place Team Paul Harvey) and Team Heather Strong (who fought into a Tie-Breaker with a win over the recently crowned new Provincial Junior Champion, Team Greg Blyde.   The Fourth Place Tie-Breaker is necessary because a team cannot be eliminated from the Playoffs by their head-to-head round robin record.

 

There follows the scores and highlights for the six matchups this week in the 2016 – 2017 RE/MAX SuperLeague Season:

 

Make-Up Game:   A. Harvey (skipped by Jeff Thomas) were spoilers, scoring 3 multiples and defeating McInnes Cooper (skipped by Trent Skanes) 8-3.   McInnes Cooper, the Defending SuperLeague Winner, was thereby eliminated from playoff contention.    Thomas held a 5-1 lead at the half and scored three in the 6th end to put the game away (leaving 5 teams in contention for second place and a spot in the 1 vs. 2 Page Playoff Game).

 

ICE #1:       Team Stacie Curtis scored 3 in the first end but gave it back in the 7th end and Curtis had to make a takeout with her last rock for a 7-4 win over former RE/MAX SuperLeague Winners Therapeutic Services Physiotherapy.

 

ICE #3:       Former multiple RE/MAX SuperLeague Winner Team Mark Noseworthy was the 9-1 victor over another former multiple RE/MAX SuperLeague Winner A. Harvey (skipped by Jeff Thomas).   Noseworthy scored 3 multiples, the nicest shot being a big weight double takeout in the 4th end that squeezed two frozen stones off the button for a 6-1 lead.

 

ICE #4:      Team Greg Blyde was held to a couple singles (thanks largely to erratic draw weight).   Team Heather Strong led throughout and won their must-win encounter 8-2 with the clinching points, a 4-count, coming in the 6th end.

 

ICE #5:      Former RE/MAX SuperLeague Winner Team Colin Thomas was prevented from moving into tie-break position by a 6-0 loss to First Place Team Paul Harvey.   Harvey stole 3 in the 5th end for a 5-0 lead.   The Thomas foursome gets $210 for their season of SuperLeague play.

 

ICE #6:      Carroll Investments.strategically blanked the opening end, took a pair with hammer in the 2nd end, and was never behind in their 7-2 win over Team Shelley Hardy    The Hardy foursome gets $140 for their season of SuperLeague play.   The Andrew Taylor skipped foursome gets $70 and their win kept them from being alone in the cellar.
