Article content

All three leagues at the Maitland Curling Club have been very competitive this season, with the proverbial ‘on any given night any team can win’ holding true. Evidence of the balance in the leagues came this past Wednesday when three of the four games ended in ties.

Entering the night with a perfect 5 and 0 record, Ken Logtenberg and ‘Don’t Be Hastie’ experienced their first blip of the year when James Hickling and ‘Tiesma Tarps’ came back with a steal of two in the last end to tie the game 5 – 5.

Mark Jenkins and ‘Kinda Dunn’ also scored in the final end to earn a 7 – 7 tie with Paula Kroll and ‘Between the Sheets’.

Charlie Crawford and his Port Albert ‘Ice Cubes’ team recorded their third tie of the season to go along with three wins after Andy Telford and the ‘Outsliders’ got one in the 8th to make the final score 8 – 8.

The only decision on the night went to Deb Willis and the ‘Dream Crushers’ who edged Greg Pressault and ‘Simonson Says’ 8 – 6 in a game that was every bit as close as the other three.

In doubles action Monday the top two teams in the league so far met and the result was another tie, 9 – 9, between Kathy Hallam/Kate Nicholson and Dave Cloet/Laurie Ginn. In the other doubles match Amelie Lagace recorded her second 6-ended of the year, this time with Adam Glen as a partner, on their way to a 13 – 5 win over Cathy McNeil and Jonathon Lee.

The standings are tight in the Monday/Tuesday league but most of the games this week were not. Bill Roper and ‘Yes, We Kan!’ started the onslaugt with a lop-sided 12 – 3 win over Jeff Sowerby and ‘Graffic Designs’.

Grant Dawson filled in as skip for the ‘Rolling Stones’ and they continued their winning ways with a 13 – 4 over Dale Dolson and ‘Smarty Pants’. Roger Haines led ‘Ginn on the Rocks’ to a 9 – 0 inundation of Mike Strickland and ‘Coastal Conservation’, which may or may not prove that when the tsunami approaches you better run.
