Brad Wood’s Nufloors remained undefeated in  Baron Insurance Super League action with an 8-4 doubling of TJ Perepolkin’s Canaccord Wealth Management Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club.

Wood, now 4-0, collected deuces in the second and fourth ends, while Perepolkin, now 2-2, responded with singles in one, three and five.

After swapping singles in six and seven, Wood cracked a triple in eight to seal the win.

Robbi Kuhn’s North Enderby Timber overcame an early deficit to ground Jim Cotter’s Woodland Equipment 8-7.

With Cotter away at the $100,000 GP Car & Home World Cup of Curling in Sault Ste Marie, Ont., Aron Herrick subbed in at skip and got the Woodland crew off to a solid start with a triple in one.

Kuhn (4-1), who had to make several tricky draws against multiple Woodland points throughout the game, came right back with a three-ender in two, only to have Herrick record a triple in three.

After stealing in seven, Kuhn completed the comeback with a steal of two in eight when Herrick was narrow on his final stone.

Jenn Gerow’s CanHealth/A&G Supply racked up seven points over two ends to ice Alyssa Kyllo’s Armstrong Optometry 9-1.

Kyllo (0-5) was heavy on her finals stones in the first and second ends, allowing Gerow (3-2) a pair of early steals.

The optometry crew counted a single in three on a nice draw by Kyllo before Gerow collected four in the fourth end and stole three in the fifth.

Mark Longworth counted points in four straight ends to earn a 6-2 win over Sherry Heath’s Trademark Packaging.

Down a point after two ends, Longworth (2-3) pocketed a deuce in three, singles in four and five, followed by a steal of two in six.

Heath (1-3) was forced to a single in seven and settled for handshakes.

Meanwhile, Cotter is 0-2 at the Sault Ste Marie spiel. After falling 5-3 to Coldwater, Ont.’s Glenn Howard Wednesday, Cotter bowed 7-6 to Toronto’s John Epping Thursday morning.

He faced Sault Ste. Marie’s Brad Jacobs Thursday night.

n Gerow’s rink was runner-up to Salmon Arm’s Sandra Jenkins in the A event at the 62nd annual Silver Star Ladies Bonspiel last weekend at the Vernon club.

In the B division, Salmon Arm’s Gerri Kiy placed first, followed by Kelowna’s Maureen Bird in second. Simone Groundwater of Williams Lake took the C event, with Kyllo earning second place.
