The inaugural games in the Club Challenge were played over the last two weeks. Teams Anderson and Hunter were eliminated in the semi-final, and Team Lambie won the final game against Team Ramsay. Congratulations to Andrew, Keith, Robert, and Martin.
The holders of the Club Challenge may now be challenged by any four club members. Challenges made this season will be subject to suitable ice being available.
The final of this season’s KO was played out last night with Team Jacobs meeting Team Ramsay. Team Jacobs took first blood with a three in end 1; not to be outdone Team Ramsay responded with a four in End 2. Team Jacobs took a two in the third end followed by the steal of a single in the fourth, to lead 6-4. Team Ramsay then dug deep to come back and score eight shots in the last three ends and take the first silverware of the season 12-6.
Congratulations to Jim, Robert, Linda, and Les on their emphatic win (especially after two peeled games), commiserations to Team Jacobs.
The semi-finals for this season’s Knock-out were contested last night (Monday); both games turned out to be extremely close encounters. In the first game, Team Jacobs prevailed over Team Lambie to win 4-3 and progress to the final. All ends were won by one shot, the difference being that Team Jacobs managed a steal in the sixth end. In the second game, Team Anderson and Team Ramsay peeled at five all with Team Ramsay taking singles in the last two ends to level the score. Time prevented drawing the house as a decider, so Team Ramsay progressed to the final on ends.
The final is scheduled for Wednesday 22 November (5.30pm).
