Timber trip up Cotter

Robbi Kuhn’s North Enderby Timber counted deuces in three straight ends to upend Jim Cotter’s Woodland Equipment 7-4 in Baron Insurance Super League action Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club.

After blanking one, Kuhn, now 2-4, drew to the button for a single in two. Cotter (4-1) took advantage of some NET misses in three to collect a triple, and followed that with a single steal in four.

Kuhn cracked a couple of tough doubles for deuces in five and six, and recorded another steal of two in seven.

Darrell (Heavy D) Houston’s Nufloors escaped with a 7-5 win over Sherry Heath’s De Vine Vintners.

Back-and-forth play had the rinks knotted 3-3 after four ends. Nufloors (4-2) pulled ahead with two points in five, but the Vintners (1-5) stormed back with a single in six, and single steal in seven.

Facing more guards than Guantanamo Bay in eight, Houston went wide with his final stone, catching a late curl to bite the four-foot for the win.

Dave Merklinger’s Canwest Propane needed just five ends to stop Mark Longworth’s Sladen Moore 8-1.

Canwest (6-0) burgled a pair in the first end, allowed a single in the second, and then counted six points over the next three ends to secure the win.

Sladen Moore dipped to 1-4.
