It was a good night to be a fan of close curling games during the most recent round of action in the Original 16 Cash League.

All five contests ended up reaching the later ends in action from the Moose Jaw Curling Centre on Wednesday night, with a handful of interesting results.

Protec Studios (Tyler Krupski, 9-4) continued their ascension in the standings, moving into sole possession of second place thanks to an 8-3 win over John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 6-8). Krupski got off to a great start, taking a 3-0 lead through three ends, but Wenarchuk tied things up over the next two frames. Krupski took control from there, though, putting up three in the sixth and stealing two in the seventh to secure the win.

BTN Chartered Accountants (Penny Barker, 13-0) remained unbeaten thanks to a 7-4 victory over Pups Parlour (Jaedon Miller, 7-6). The two teams exchanged deuces in the first two ends and single points in the third and fourth before Barker took control with a steal of two in the fifth. Miller got one back in the sixth to make it a 5-4 game, but Barker would finish things off with another two in the seventh.

KalTire (Dustin Woloschuk, 6-8) had the upset of the night as they took an 8-4 win over Matt Froehlich (8-5). A fast start was the key to Woloschuk’s success, as he led 3-0 through two and after Froehlich picked up a pair in the third, extended his lead to 6-2 through five. Froehlich got back within a pair with a deuce in the sixth, but another two from Woloschuk in the seventh brought things to an early end.

RK Sunview Farms (Dayne Heisler, 0-13) came oh-so-close to their first win of the season but ended up dropping a 6-4 decision to EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 4-10). Heisler led 3-0 through two and 4-2 through five ends, but Gunnis got back on track from there. He’d put up a pair in the sixth end and steal another two in the seventh before running Heisler out of rocks in the eighth.

The other contest on the night was also a doozy, as Fountain Tire (Barry Silk, 5-9) scored a pair in the seventh end and would go on to a 5-4 victory over Pro-Tec Electric (Stan Barnsley, 6-7). Silk scored a single point in the second and the two teams exchanged deuces in the third and fourth. Barnsley tied the game in the fifth and stole another in the sixth, leading to Silk’s game-winning pair in the seventh.

KMS Construction (Ben Gamble, 8-2) defaulted their game against Rod Montgomery (7-7).

League action continues every Wednesday night at the Moose Jaw Curling Centre.
