Big win for Desjardin

Senior men's curling action heats up at Golden Ear's

Ed Desjardin’s rink curled to a 9-6 upset victory over the first-place Bob Goodin team during Haney Masters’ Curling action at Golden Ears Curling Club Wednesday.

The win was good enough to move Desjardin’s rink into third place overall in league standings.

Behind some superb play by lead Dave Tebbutt, second Ed Belsey and third David Christensen, Desjardins scored three in the final end to break a 6-6 deadlock.

Eric Holler’s rink remained tied with Goodin with an easy win over Tom Little’s rink of Max Albrechtsen, Jack Flottorp and Stan Melanson.

Other action saw Dutchie Kleisterlee’s rink of Rudy Baird, Kent Skene and Roland Hill score a last-end 6-5 victory over Gary Sawatsky.

Along with third Laverne Hautz, second Curt Slater and lead John Jacobs, Sawatsky led 5-4, but came up short as Kleisterlee stole two for the victory.
