Canwest Propane (Darren Heath) are alone atop the Baron Insurance Super League after stuffing Jen Gerow (CanHealth/A&G Supply) 8-2 Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club.
The propane crew won their ninth straight game in moving to 10-2. The rinks swapped singles in the early going before Gerow made a nifty hit and roll for a steal of one in three.
Heath played the junk game in four and capitalized with a clutch come-around. Heath also sizzled in five and six with hit and rolls for the early handshake. Gerow dipped to 5-6.
Robbi Kuhn (North Enderby Timber) is one game back of Heath, at 9-2, after grounding TJ Perepolkin (Canaccord Capital) 6-2.
The NET foursome recorded a deuce in the opening end and swiped one in two before Perepolkin recorded a fabulous draw through a port to the button for one in three.
The Canaccord gang earned another steal in four before Kuhn reeled off singles in ends five through seven. Perepolkin is 5-7.
Mark Longworth (Sladen Moore) made a raised takeout to score four in seven before running Darren Nelson (Nu Floors) out of rocks in eight for an 8-7 victory.
Nelson missed two draw attempts to set Longworth (6-5) up for a gift in seven. It was 5-4 Nu Floors after six ends. Nelson is 9-3.
Jim Cotter (Woodland Equipment) used a great hit and roll to steal one in the third and added four in four en route to a 7-2 win over Sherry Heath (DeVine Vintners).
The Woodland gang improved to 5-6, while Heath dipped to 1-10.
Dale Hofer and his daughter, Sydney Hofer, defeated Darren Heath and Dave Merklinger in last weekend’s fourth annual Two on Two Bonspiel.
The Hofers pocketed $400, while Heath and Merklinger earned $300.
There was a field of 16 with everybody getting at least five games. The qualifying eight teams all got their $100 entry fee back.
“It was a fun event with family teams and friends getting together,” said Merklinger. “It was an excellent way of killing time over the holidays.”
Games were four ends per game with each team member throwing four rocks in a row and not allowed past the halfway point of the ice. Each team was allowed two hits per end.
