JUST 3 TEAMS ELIMINATED FROM THE PLAYOFFS WITH 4 DRAWS REMAINING
There follows the scores and highlights for the matchups this week in the 2016 – 2017 SuperLeague Season:
ICE #1: Fun ‘N’ Fast got out to a 5-1 lead after 3 ends against Therapeutic Services Physiotherapy; but saw the lead evaporate in the next 3 ends. In such games it is usually the team with momentum that goes on to win, but the Fun ‘N’ Fast foursome made all their rocks for a 5-count in the 7th end and a 10-5 victory.
ICE #2: Team Heather Strong scored three’s in the 2nd and 4th ends to register a 7-1 win over Team Colin Thomas and is one of the three teams with a share of Second Place at 5-2.
ICE #3: Team Shelley Hardy outlasted Team Stacie Curtis 6-4 when Team Curtis missed a draw with hammer in the 8th end that would have put the game into an extra end.
ICE #4: Carroll Investments.played tough for 8 ends against Team Paul Harvey (skipped by Steve Bragg), but Bragg hit the open counter with hammer in the 8th end to take 7-6 victory and put their team alone into First Place at 5-1.
ICE #6: The Greg Blyde Junior Team took an opening pair over the very experienced Team Mark Noseworthy, but Noseworthy skipped his foursome to three pairs the rest of the way in an 8-2 win and a share of Second Place.
