Tight games in Haney Masters Curling

Earl King’s rink brought their record to a perfect 8-0 with a victory over Peter Koehler’s rink in Haney Master’s Curling action last Wednesday.

King broke open a 3-3 tie going into the sixth end to score three, then followed up with three more in the seventh end, as his team of Al Goldstack, Hugh McIntyre and Bob Cocking kept the pressure on Koehler to keep their unbeaten record intact.

King opened up a two-game lead over his other rivals, Peter England and Angelo Massaro who were involved in a game that came down to the last rock.  Massaro pulled off a beautiful takeout on the last shot as his rink edged England 8-7 to bring his record to 6-2 and a second-place tie with England. Behind 7-6 entering the final end, Massaro’s rink of Rudy Baird (third), Reg Nelligan (second) and Don Svelander (lead) set up Massaro’s winning shot.

Upcoming events at Golden Ears Curling Club includes the top teams from the Fraser Valley Zone in the Masters’ categories of over-60 and over-70 competing Feb. 7-9 for a spot in the provincial championships.  Haney Master’s will be represented in the over-60 category by  King (skip), Jack Stadel (third), Lorne Fletcher (second) and England (lead).  Curling action each day will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
