Tie games sweep lake curling action

This week’s Wednesday night draw saw a number of really close games.

This week’s Wednesday night draw saw a number of really close games.

Sheet 1: The Sidhu rink defeated the Mayea rink 6-5. Diane Myrden had a chance to hit and roll in the eight end for a tie, but her draw came up just short.

Sheet 2: The Smycniuk rink continued its winning ways with a 6-3 win over the MacGregor rink. This game was close early on, but a measurement in the 4th end that went in favor of the Youbou rink appeared to demoralize the opposition. The two teams shook hands after six ends.

Sheet 3: The Desmot rink tied the Taylor rink 7-7. Steve’s tricky “ in off” for 2 points preserved the tie for his team.

Sheet 4: The Restock rink tied the Waller rink by the same 7-7 score. Mike Waller needed to draw for two with his last rock of the game to get the tie.

The Cowichan Lake Rocks Club would like to welcome our new Wednesday night league players. A shout out to Gary Miller, Ross Johnson, Scott Hartshorn, Greg Longbottom and Al Gott.

Island curling fans will be treated to some excellent play Feb. 5-10 in Parksville. The venerable old rink by the ocean will be hosting the Canadian Direct Insurance B.C. Men’s Curling Championship. The winners of this event will advance to the Canadian Brier finals.
