The perennial league title contenders won their season-opening contest 8-6 over John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 0-2), but they had to pull off a few dramatics to make it happen: Wenarchuk picked up deuces in each of the first two ends to take a 4-0 lead, only to see Jordison respond with a five-spot in the third. It was a back-and-forth battle from there, as Wenarchuk would pick up a single point to tie the game in the fourth, only to see Jordison go ahead 8-5 with points the next two ends. Wenarchuk got one back in the seventh but would run out of rocks in the final end.
Defending champion BTN Chartered Accounts (Danielle Sicinski, 2-0) were one of six teams to emerge from week two with a perfect record after battling to a 5-4 win over Protec Video (Wade Gray 1-1). The back-and-forth contest saw Gray leading 4-3 heading into the seventh, only to see Sicinski score one to tie and steal in the eighth for the victory.
KMS (Ben Gamble, 2-0) put together the most commanding win of the night with a 12-3 victory over Main Street Strength and Conditioning (Jazmin Ackerman, 0-2). Gamble did most of his damage with four in the second end, taking to a 6-2 lead through five. A steal of two in the sixth and another four in the seventh put them ahead 12-2 before Ackerman added her single point in the eighth.
Kal Tire (Bob Desjarlais) also remained undefeated, holding Pro-Tec Electric (Stan Barnsley, 0-1) to points in only two ends on their way to a 6-3 win. The game was tied 3-3 through six when Desjarlais used the hammer to score one and followed with steal of two in eight.
Tax Team (Murray Stroeder, 2-0) stole points in back-to-back ends to close out their game with Barb Wallace (1-1) with an 8-3 win. They, too, were tied 3-3 after four ends, when Stroeder scored two in the fifth, stole two in six and another in the seventh to close things out.
Paws N Play (David Gray, 2-0) ended up in a war with Kelsey Noyes (0-2) and her junior girls foursome, needing to score a pair in the eighth and then steal in an extra end to take a 7-6 win.
Walchuk Masonry (Ralph Courtnage, 2-0) are the other unbeaten team, and they also needed a late rally to secure their win over EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 0-2). Gunnis led 5-4 through five ends, but single points the next three frames gave Courtnage their 7-4 victory.
One other game went into an extra end, as Forged 365 (Donna Ackerman, 1-1) came from behind to down Ackerman Ag Services (Patrick Ackerman, 0-2). Patrick carried a 4-2 lead into the eighth end, but a Donna deuce tied things up and the provincial wheelchair curling team member finished things off with a steal in the ninth to win 5-4.
Matt Froehlich (1-1) built a 4-0 lead through the first two ends against Easy Care Living (Lorraine Arguin, 0-2) before yet another comeback saw Arguin close to within one 5-4 through five. Froehlich would close things out in style, though, with four in the seventh giving him a 9-4 win.
League action continues every Wednesday at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.
