NuFloors mop up Heath foursome

Brad Wood was shut out in a Red Deer cashspiel, but made all his shots in the Baron Insurance Super League Wednesday night.

Brad Wood (NuFloors) couldn’t catch a break going 0-3 in the Red Deer Curling Classic last weekend.

The Wood foursome made pretty much all their shots Wednesday night in a 6-2 Baron Insurance Super League quickie win (four ends) over Sherry Heath (Trademark Packaging) at the Vernon Curling Club.

The NuFloors crew scored a single in one, four in the second and a deuce in four, going to 5-0 atop the nine-team circuit.

Meanwhile, Jim Cotter (Woodland Euqipment), who won $1,000 while finishing 1-4 at the $100,000 GP Car & Home World Cup last week in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., also executed well in an 8-4 stuffing of TJ Perepolkin (Canaccord Wealth Management).

After the rinks traded singles, Perepolkin’s gang recorded some great shot-making to count three in the third end. Woodland bounced back with a single in the fourth after coming up heavy on the draw for a deuce.

Cotter’s crew put together a solid fifth for two and a 4-4 tie, and then kept the pressure on in six as Perepolkin faced four on his last shot and gave up a steal of one.

Cotter (3-1) could only mess things up with his last two attempts in seven and swiped three after some stellar set-up work by his teammates. The Canaccord boys fell to 2-1.

Roberta Kuhn (North Enderby Timber) stayed one game back of Wood by brushing back Alyssa Kyllo (Armstrong Optometry) 6-5.

It was 1-1 after two with Kuhn blanking three to pick up a deuce in the third. Kyllo made a nice draw for one in the fifth facing three Kuhn counters.

Kuhn then made a great freeze on her first shot in the sixth. Kyllo attempted to duplicate the shot but rolled into the open, leaving Kuhn an easy hit for two.

Kyllo registered two splendid shots in the seventh for two and then delivered a perfect freeze on her first shot, forcing Kuhn to draw the pot. Kuhn’s rock overcurled and wrecked on a guard, allowing Kyllo a single steal.

Kuhn and company played a great ninth, leaving Robbi an open hit for the win. Kyllo dipped to 0-5.

Dave Merklinger (Canwest Propane) parlayed a seven-end fifth into a 12-2 grounding of Mark Longworth (Sladen Moore).


Merklinger, who opened with three in the opening end, is 3-2. Longworth fell to 1-4.
