Reversal of fortune in curling league

Nov. 11 marked the second week of the Agro Ponoka/Ponoka Ford Super League and what a wild week it was.


Nov. 11 marked the second week of the Agro Ponoka/Ponoka Ford Super League and what a wild week it was.

Many of the teams saw their fortunes take a complete turn from the previous week with some teams moving two or three positions, up or down, within their respective pools.

Pool A had all winning teams handing their opponents substantial losses. The Baron foursome remained in top spot with a 72-8 trouncing of the Steve Pederson rink. Meanwhile, G & T Custom Farming tallied a win by defeating Agro Ponoka by the same 72-8 score. The Morrow team slid up two places with a convincing 66-14 win over Riske.

In Pool B, it was more of the same, except for one game. The Broderson team out-shot Ponoka Ford 68-12. Another 72-8 tally saw Baliant take the win over the Dufva rink. The only close score of the evening had Sherrer sweep past the Olson team 42-38. Both of these teams, however, maintained their positions from the week before.

Pool A standings after week two: 1, Baron, 138; 2, G & T Custom Farming, 112; 3, Morrow, 94; 4, Agro Ponoka, 60; 5, Pederson, 48; 6, Riske 28.

Pool B standings after week two: 1, Olson, 110; 2, Baliant, 102; 3, Sherrer, 92; 4, Ponoka Ford, 92; 5, Broderson, 76; 6, Dufva, 8.
