Thanks to President for prompting me for the game report.
Taverners curlers debuted Thursday night on the late draw at St.Vital, in our whites, and facing the Girouard foursome, a team who had about a year of curling experience. Following a brief pre-game, mainly organising for position, we decided on Jon at lead, Karran at second, Keith at third and Ray at skip. The principal reason for this lineup was to give Keith an opportunity to be a thespian on ice, while calling the sweeping in a most theatrical manner.
The game started well with Taverners scoring a five to start things off. The teams traded small scores for several ends with the Taverners up 7-2 after 5 ends. Our opposition scored three in the sixth end to close the gap to 7-5 but that is the closest it would be. Taverners took one in seventh and stole three more in going home to make the final 11-5 Taverners.
Given the lateness of the hour (about 1130 as we were the last team done) we decided to defer our celebrations to next week when we are on the 7:00 draw.
Overall the team played well with very few outright misses. It is fair to say that the team earned its second win fair and square and regardless what happens during the rest of the season it was a fun start.
