Plenty of close games in week seven of Original 16 Cash League action

BTN Accounting only undefeated team after KMS Construction falls to Pro-Tec Electric
And then there was one.

BTN Chartered Accountants (Penny Barker) remain the only undefeated team in Original 16 Cash League action after rolling to a 7-0 victory over EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 1-6) in action Wednesday night at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.

Barker got things going quickly, scoring four in the first end, and followed with a steal of one in the second and two more in the third, leading Gunnis to bring things to an early end.

KMS Construction (Ben Gamble, 4-1) suffered their first loss of the season, dropping a back-and-forth 9-8 decision to Pro-Tec Electric (Stan Barnsley, 5-2). Gamble took a 4-1 lead after scoring three in the third end, but Barnsley got all of that back and then some with a four-spot the very next frame. Barnsley extended his lead to 7-4 with a deuce in the sixth, but sure enough, Gamble rallied with three in the seventh to go ahead 8-7. Barnsley was able to put the hammer to perfect use in the final end, though, getting his deuce and the one-point win.

Matt Froehlich (6-1) kept pace with the leaders with a 6-5 win over KalTire (Dustin Woloschuk, 2-5). Froehlich actually trailed 4-2 at the fifth end break, but a deuce and steal of one the next two ends gave him a 5-4 lead heading home. Woloschuk tied the game 5-5 in the eighth, and Froehlich scored one in the extra end for the victory.

John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 4-3) used the only multi-point end of the game -- a three-ender in the second -- to take a 6-4 win over Motion-Golden Mobility (Lorraine Arguin, 1-5). Arguin scored single points in the first, third and fourth ends to tie the game, but Wenarchuk had singles of his own in the fifth and sixth to go up by a pair. The two teams exchanged single points the final two ends to give Wenarchuk the win.

Things weren’t as close in the other game on the night, as Walchuk Masonry (Tyler Krupski, 2-4) scored early and often in a 7-1 win over Fonger Wealth Management (Nick Cornea, 1-5). Walchuk led 3-1 after three ends, but a Krupski single in the fourth and steal of three in the fifth would bring things to an early end.

The Original 16 Cash League goes every Wednesday night at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.
