The stakes are higher and the purse is richer for two of the three pools in the hunt for the wins in the playoff round of the Agro Ponoka/ Ponoka Ford Super Curling League that began on December 8.

Pool A teams are vying for $240 per game while the rinks in Pool B are “hurrying hard” for $120 per game. The teams in Pool C are curling for the same $80 per game that all the teams played for in the round robin.

All it takes is a close loss or a convincing win for the standings to change week to week and that is what happened in Pool A after the first week of the playoffs. All four teams changed positions from the previous week. The standings in Pools B and C, however, remained the same as the week before.

Pool A saw the Morrow foursome win a close contest over John Olson $126 to $114 to move from fourth to third place. In the other game, Sherrer slid into first position overall with a strong $156 to $84 victory over G & T Custom Farming, which dropped into fourth with the loss.

In Pool B, the spread between first and fourth is a mere $40 but the second and third place teams are separated by only $4. For the first time this season a game ended in a tie with Stan Baliant matching the Baron rink $60 to $60. Meanwhile, Agro Ponoka got past Kevin Broderson by a tally of $69 to $51.

Pool C”had Dwight Dufva out-skip the Pederson rink by a score of $46 to $34 but the win was not enough to move the team out of fourth spot. In the final match-up, Ponoka Ford tripled up the take on the Riske foursome $60 to $20.

Pool A standings after week six: 1, Sherrer, $410; 2, Olson $386; 3, Morrow, $364; 4, G & T Custom Farming, $336.

Pool B standings after week six: 1, Baliant, $296; 2, Broderson, $269; 3, Agro Ponoka, $265; 4, Baron $256.

Pool “C standings after week six: 1, Pederson, $214; 2, Riske, $186; 3, Ponoka Ford, $182; 4, Dufva, $116.

With two more weeks remaining in the super league, anything can happen, depending on whether the teams are on the winning or losing end of a game. All the action goes on Wednesdays and everyone is welcome to come down to the curling club to watch.
