Taverners evened their record at 3 and 3 on Tuesday falling 10-3. After Mr Bayney won the toss we gave up a steal of 1 on the first end. We took 3 in the second end with a delicate last rock takeout through a narrow port. Our opposition replied with a 4 when a miss on their intended last rock shot careened onto, and removed our shot rock which had been buried behind cover. They stole their way to 5 more points over the remaining ends and we retired after 6. The highlight of the night was a long raise double takeout by Mr Bayney. Next week Ali will come in for Nigel.
Taverners fell to 3-2 with a 6-2 loss on Tuesday. After stealing a point on the first end (lost the toss) we gave up a tough 3. We fought back to take 1 in the third end on a delicate last rock draw before our opposition scored 3 to put the match out of reach. Ahh, the beer was cold, as was our draw weight.
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.
Taverners curlers open with a win
Taverners opened their curling season last evening with a win. The score flattered our opposition, who were down 6 – 1 midway through, after narrowly missing giving up a steal of 6, when their skip managing to hold us to a 2 with a fine last rock draw. We really had only one poor end where we gave up a 5 in the sixth end. Thereafter we took two in the seventh and were lying three buried in the eighth when our opposition conceded making the final 8 – 6.
Thanks to all participants at the game.
