Jordison, Barker to play for Original 16 Cash League title

Plenty of extra end games as championship and consolation finalists decided
The finalists are set in the Original 16 Cash League, and it’s once again a couple of familiar faces – even if there was a bit of drama involved.

Seaborn Insurance (Joel Jordison, 16-1) needed an extra end to take a 7-6 win over Easy Care Living (Lorraine Arguin, 12-5) while BTN Chartered Accountants (Penny Barker, 13-4) also needed a late rally to get past Kal Tire (Bob Desjarlais, 7-10) in their semifinal.

For Jordison, it was all about the late-game steals: with the game tied 4-4 through five ends, Arguin stole two to take control heading into the final two frames. Jordison would get one back in the seventh, though, and steal a single point in the eighth to tie things 6-6 before stealing another in the extra end to take the win.

Barker pulled off just as impressive a comeback, as trailing 6-4 after six ends she used the hammer to rack up three in the seventh and then stole two more in the final end to take a 9-6 victory.

Things were just as close in the consolation semifinals, where Protec Video (Wade Gray, 9-8) needed an extra end to take a 7-6 win over EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 8-9) and John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 12-5) scored one in an extra frame to down Tax Team (Murray Stroeder, 10-7) 5-4.

The championship and consolation finals are set for next Wednesday at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.
