Curling matchup comes down to last rock

This week’s Mid-Island Co-op Senior Cash League draw needed an extra end to settle things.

This week’s Mid-Island Co-op Senior Cash League draw needed an extra end to settle things.

Marg Obee’s team was able to squeak out a 10-9 win Wednesday after burying a rock in the back of the house that Sally Noonan couldn’t quite beat out.

Val Fenton was also a 10-9 winner that day, beating out Archie McIntosh. Bob Hungar and Brian Scorer’s teams were both able to stay undefeated, with Hungar beating Tom Renton 5-3 and Scorer defeating Ron Dunn 7-4. Other action saw Graeme Cave double up the Don Varney rink, skipped by Ed Stumborg, 6-3.

The previous week’s draws weren’t quite as close. The best game saw Hungar use the hammer to hang on for a 6-4 win over the Varney rink skipped by Bernie Lafrance. In other action, Cave beat Obee 7-4 and Gerry Adams skipped the Renton rink to a 10-6 win over McIntosh.
