TEAM PAUL HARVEY AT 4-0 TOPS STANDINGS AFTER DRAW #4

 

 

There follows the scores and highlights for the six matchups this week in the 2016 – 2017 SuperLeague Season at the RE/MAX Centre; again this week for the third consecutive week, three of the games were decided by the last rock (ices 2, 3, and 4):

 

ICE #1:   Both teams scored “multiples, but Skip Adam Boland of Fun ‘N’ Fast made a double takeout with his first stone in the final end and did not have to throw his “hammer” to defeat Carroll Investments, skipped Andrew Taylor, 6-4.

 

ICE #2:   Team Mark Noseworthy was knocked from the ranks of the undefeated by Team Heather Strong.   Strong made a thin double takeout for 4 in the 2nd end (despite losing a measure for 5), and she drew the button with hammer in the 8th end for a 7-5 victory.

 

ICE #3:   Team Paul Harvey registered a come-back 7-4 win over Team Shelley Hardy by scoring 6 points in the last 4 ends.   Hardy went ahead 3-1 in the 3rd end with a pair from a double-raise takeout, but she was left with a high-difficulty in-off with hammer to tie in the 8th end.

 

ICE #4:   Therapeutic Services Physiotherapy, skipped by Andrew Symonds, blanked 5 consecutive ends but was not ahead before the final rock was thrown.   McInnes Cooper, the Defending Champions skipped by Trent Skanes, had their hammer hang outside on an attempted draw to the 4-foot circle resulting in a 3-2 loss.

 

ICE #5:   Team Colin Thomas with a pair moved ahead 3-1 at the half on route to a 7-3 victory over the Greg Blyde Junior Team.   The victors registered three stolen singles.

 

ICE #6:   Team Stacie Curtis lost 7-2 to A. Harvey, led by skip Jeff Thomas.   Curtis faced seven counters with her hammers in the first 3 ends, but the decisive blow was a 3-count in the 6th end.

 

The top four teams, and ties, make the Playoffs.   Twenty-four of the 66 round robin games are now completed.   The Standings, after all teams have played four games, are:

 

4 – 0    Team Paul Harvey

3 – 1    Team Mark Noseworthy

DEFENDING CHAMPION WINS FIRST; BUT IT “WAS NOT PRETTY”

ICE #1:   Team Shelley Hardy used guards effectively to score a pair in the 7th end, which was the margin of victory, in a 5-3 win over Team Heather Strong.

 

ICE #2:   A. Harvey, led by skip Jeff Thomas, stole all 8 points and three deuces registering an 8-0 shutout over Carroll Investments, skipped Andrew Taylor.

 

ICE #3:  Team Mark Noseworthy was never behind after scoring three with hammer in the first end, but needed to make a double takeout with his last rock in knocking Therapeutic Services Physiotherapy, skipped by Andrew Symonds, from the ranks of the undefeated with a 7-6 win.

 

ICE #4:  Team Colin Thomas came from behind three times and used hammer to draw the button in the extra end in defeating Fun ‘N’ Fast, skipped by Adam Boland, 8-7.

 

ICE #5:   Team Paul Harvey stayed in a first place tie, scored 4 in the second end, and stole the next two ends in a 7-2 victory over Team Stacie Curtis, (which included two of Harvey’s nieces).

 

ICE #6:  McInnes Cooper, the Defending Champions skipped by Trent Skanes, won 6-5 and avoided a third loss to start the Season by getting out to a 6-0 lead at the half over Team Greg Blyde but faced having to make a takeout with his last rock to prevent going an extra end.

DEFENDING CHAMPION LOSES SECOND STRAIGHT TO START SEASON

 

CARROLL INVESTMENTS WINS BATTLE OF THE JUNIOR TEAMS

 

 

There follows the scores and highlights for the six matchups this week in the new SuperLeague Season at the RE/MAX Centre; three of the games were decided by the last rock:

 

ICE #1:  Carroll Investments skip Andrew Taylor made a wide outturn hit with his last rock in the 8th end to secure a 6-3 victory and avoid going an extra end against Team Greg Blyde, the other of the two Junior Teams entered in RE/MAX SuperLeague this Season.

ICE #3:  Team Colin Thomas got into the win column with a 6-3 win over McInnes Cooper in a battle of the Champions from the last two Seasons.

 

ICE #4:  Team Paul Harvey won out in a sea-saw battle over a team of fellow veterans, A. Harvey, by scoring deuces in the 6th and 8th ends; skip Jeff Thomas was left with just a hope and a prayer for his last shot.

 

ICE #5:  Fun ‘N’ Fast skip, Adam Boland, led his Team through a perfectly-played extra end by making a 4-foot raise to the button with hammer for a 4-3 win against previously undefeated Team Heather Strong in a game that saw all singles scored and both teams suffer terrible luck on a potential game-winning rock in the 8th end.

Super League Draw #1 Recap


DEFENDING CHAMPION GOES DOWN TO DEFEAT

FATHER vs. SON (BACK-END) GAME GOES AN EXTRA END

EXPERIENCE ALSO PREVAILS IN FATHER vs. SON (FRONT-END) GAME

STRONG DEFEATS CURTIS (AFTER TWO LOSSES TO HER IN 2016 PROVINCIAL WOMEN’S)


The following six matchups this week kicked off the new SuperLeague Season at the RE/MAX Centre:

ICE #1: Jeff Thomas led his Team to a 5-4 extra end victory over the Team skipped by his Son, Colin. Singles were scored in all 9 ends, but six of the singles were stolen. Colin Thomas was heavy on an attempted draw to the button with hammer in the final end.

ICE #2: The Paul Harvey foursome scored a decisive 11-1 victory over the Trent Skanes skipped defending SuperLeague Champions. Harvey executed a slash for 5 in the first end setting the scene for an early finish.

ICE #3: The Heather Strong Women’s Team outlasted the Stacie Curtis Women’s Team 4-3 with the decisive points coming on a 3-count in the 7th end. Curtis needed a pair in the 8th end to send the match to an extra end, but her draw for two was just a centimetre short of the rings.

ICE #4: The young Greg Blyde Team scored a 5-3 win over the Women’s Team skipped by Shelley Hardy.

ICE #5: Third, Mark Healy, in the absence of skip Andrew Symonds (3rd place finishers last season) defeated the young Andrew Taylor Team 7-3.

ICE #6: The veteran Mark Noseworthy foursome (with Ross Young at lead) defeated the young Adam Boland Team (skipped by third Stephen Trickett and with Ross’s Son, Zach, at second) 7-2 on the strength of a 4-count in the first end.

Three teams tied for first (sounds like last Season).
