The Jim Maitland rink proved to be the top team in Haney Masters’ League play. They continued their winning ways in taking the fall session championship at Golden Ears Winter Club.

Maitland ensured his first-place finish with a victory over Ron Laxdal’s rink of Wally Phillips, Arnie Melissen and Bob Neill on Monday before faltering to the Eric Holler crew on Wednesday.  His margin of victory was slim, but he prevailed in one of the leagues most hotly contested battles for first place with only three points separating the top five teams.

Along with third Hilly Boonstra, second Svend Neilsen and lead Jock Anderson, Maitland fought off challenges from Ed Desjardins, Roger Fast, Bill Hanula and Tom Manion rinks to secure first spot over 19 games of action.
