Taverners hit the ice Tuesday and started by losing the toss. We should have known our opposition were good when they could slide half the distance of the ice while practicing. As it turns out we held them to one in the first end but things started to unravel after that. They stole two in the second and another in the third, but the big blow was in the fourth where they stole 5. Skip Keith was left with a very tough draw and when it misfired we accepted fate and headed for pain killer in the bar.
