Longworth launches early attack

Mark Longworth earns early night with 9-2 Baron Insurance Super Curling League win over TJ Perepolkin.

An early three-ender was all Mark Longworth’s Sladen Moore rink needed to secure a 9-2 Baron Insurance Super League win over TJ Perepolkin’s Canaccord Wealth Management Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club.

Making a quick adjustment to a fast sheet of ice, Longworth executed a perfect peel-pick on his final stone to open with three. Perepolkin responded with a deuce in two, but the Sladen Moore crew racked up four more in three and a deuce in four to seal the win. Both teams end Round 1 at 4-4.

Jim Cotter’s Woodland Equipment cracked a monster five-ender in the seventh end en route to a 9-8 extra end comeback win over Jenn Gerow’s CanHealth/A&G Supply.

Gerow, now 3-5, earned a deuce in one, but gave up the lead on three straight singles. The Woodland crew (4-4) gave up their usual three-ender in five, and another single in six before they stormed back.

Brad Wood’s Nufloors stayed atop the Super League standings at 7-1 with a 7-4 win over Robbi Kuhn’s North Enderby Timber.

After the two teams traded deuces in ends one and two, Kuhn, now tied for second at 6-2, went ahead on a single in three. Wood broke the game open with a triple in four and put it away with a deuce in seven.

Dave Merklinger’s Canwest Propane pushed their win streak to five and earned a share of second place with a 5-3 win over Sherry Heath’s Tuxedo Classic Promotions.

In a mother-son skip battle, Darren Heath pocketed a deuce for 6-2 Canwest. Sherry (1-7) counted two straight singles to equalize, but after a couple of blank ends, Darren answered with a deuce in six.

Down by a point heading into the eighth end, Sherry was a tad wide on her final comearound, leaving Darren a hit for the win.

In a Sunday afternoon makeup game, Perepolkin iced Alyssa Kyllo’s Armstrong Optometry 7-5 in a back-and-forth 10-end tilt.

Kyllo (1-7) made many great shots in the opening ends to bail her team out and force the Canaccord crew to respond.

Trailing two points in the seventh end, Kyllo was pressured into taking a single, giving Perepolkin the hammer in eight. He capitalized with a hack-weight tap to score three on his final shot.

The ninth and 10th ends saw solid peels from Perepolkin’s side to quickly running Kyllo out of rocks.
