The first two nights of round-robin action are in the books for the Original 16 Cash League, and a trio of familiar names are once again at the top of the standings.

BTN Professional Accountants, KMS Construction and Matt Froehlich all improved to 2-0 on the season with wins at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre on Wednesday night.

For BTN Accountants, it was a relatively quick evening as they needed only five ends to get past Walchuk Masonry (0-2). A pair of four-spots in the second and fourth ends led to an 8-2 lead and after BTN stole another three in the fifth the two teams shook hands.

KMS found themselves in a much closer game, even though they went on an epic run of steals against EMJ Marketing (1-1), scoring single points in each end from the fourth through seventh and building a 6-2 lead. EMJ got two back in the eighth but would drop a 6-4 decision.

Team Froehlich ended up in a tough contest with Motion-Golden Mobility (0-2), with the two rinks battling to a 4-4 draw through four ends. After exchanging single points in the fifth and sixth, Froehlich put things away with the only big score of the game, a five-ender in the seventh that gave him a 9-4 victory.

Pro-Tec Electric (1-1) picked up their first win with a comeback 7-6 victory over John’s Music (1-1). John’s Music got off to a great start, tying the game with a deuce in the second end and then building a 6-2 lead heading into the fifth-end break. Pro-Tec got right back into the game in the sixth, though, and followed up with steals the next two frames, including a deuce in the eighth to take the one-point win.

KalTire (1-1) also won their first game of the season, roaring out to a 5-0 lead through four ends against Team Cornea (0-2). Cornea attempted to get back into the game with one in the fifth and a steal of two the next end but would shake hands and take the 5-3 loss.

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