COLIN THOMAS, NOSEWORTHY, and SKANES WIN GAMES ON LAST ROCK
NOSEWORTHY GIVES PREVIOUSLY-UNDEFEATED SYMONDS A FIRST LOSS
NOSEWORTHY and HARVEY TOP STANDINGS AFTER DRAW #3
DEFENDING CHAMPION WINS FIRST; BUT IT “WAS NOT PRETTY”
There follows the scores and highlights for the six matchups this week in the new SuperLeague Season at the RE/MAX Centre; again this week, three of the games were decided by the last rock:
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.
