Kyllo collects first Super League win

It took seven weeks, but Allysa Kyllo’s Armstrong Optometry is finally in the Baron Insurance Super League win column.

It took seven weeks, but Allysa Kyllo’s Armstrong Optometry is finally in the Baron Insurance Super League win column.

The junior skip did it in style, cracking a three-ender in the final end to topple Jim Cotter’s Woodland Equipment 6-5 Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club.

After Marc Fillion, throwing skip’s stones for the 3-4 Cotter rink, made a precise freeze, Kyllo, now 1-6, pulled off a low percentage double for the win.

Tied 3-3 after six ends, Cotter stole a deuce in seven after the Kyllo crew – Amy Edwards, Zetteh Gunner and Sydney Hofer – struggled to execute.

The Kyllo rink will compete in the B.C. Junior Girls Championships, starting Dec. 27 in Victoria.

Dave Merklinger’s Canwest Propane ended Brad Wood’s Nufloors’ undefeated streak with a 6-1 win.

With Darren Heath at skip, Canwest (5-2) stole a pair in one, three more in two and a single in three to put the game out of reach. Wood is 6-1.

Tuxedo Classic Promotions skip Sherry Heath came up shy on a chance at a deuce in the final end, resulting in a 5-3 loss to TJ Perepolkin’s Canaccord Wealth Management.

Perepolkin, now 3-3, opened with a single steal in one, only to give up a deuce on a well-executed double by Heath (1-6) in two. After blanking three, Canaccord skip Ryan LeDrew replied with an equally nice double for two in four, followed by a steal of one in five.

The two rinks traded singles in six and seven.

Veteran skip Mark Longworth (Sladen Moore) held on for a 4-2 win over Jenn Gerow’s CanHealth/A&G Supply.

After some solid shot making by lead Ross Hadfield, Longworth (3-4) tossed an open hit and stick for one in one, and then forced Gerow (3-4)  to hit for one in two.

With a chance at three points, Longworth settled for a deuce in the fourth end after his final draw attempt went a bit far. Gerow gave up a steal of one in six, but closed the gap with a great raise-takeout in seven. Longworth ran her out of stones in eight.
