Desjardin tops in master’s play

Fall senior curling season comes to a close at Golden Ears Curling Club on Wednesday

Max Albrechtse fires the final rock of the fifth end during the Haney Master’s Curling playoffs at the Golden Ears Curling Club on Monday.

Ed Desjardins’ rink used precision shot-making to take home the league A division championship in Haney Master’s curling at Golden Ears Curling Club on Wednesday.

Desjardins soundly defeated Dutchie Kleisterlee 7-1 to ensure first-place.

The Desjardins foursome of David Christensen, Ed Belsey and Dave Tebbutt led all 20 rinks throughout the season, then swept through the playoffs to capture the overall championship for the fall session.

With Tebbutt setting up the ends, Belsey sweeping and completing take-outs and Christensen protecting the house, Desjardins wisely skipped the rink to finish off a dominant season.

In the B division, Earl King’s rink was awarded first place over Jack Stadel as a result of an earlier victory over Stadel.

In the C division, Andy Ferguson’s rink took home top spot.

The winter master’s curling action will begin play again in January 2016.
