Twelve teams hit the sheets for the first time on Nov. 4 in the eight-week season that is the Agro Ponoka/Ponoka Ford Super League. Again, this year, many of the teams will be familiar to the league’s followers, while some new teams will try to “hurry hard” for the top spots.

The A pool saw two one-sided games with the Baron team skipping and sweeping itself to a 66-14 win over the Riske foursome and Agro Ponoka outlasting the Clayton Morrow team by a tally of 52-28. The other game in this pool resulted in 40-40 tie between the Steve Pederson and G & T Custom Farming rinks.

Pool B also had some big numbers on the boards. Ponoka Ford ended the Dufva team’s hopes of a win on the first night by defeating the team 80-0, while the John Olson foursome out-shot Broderson 72-8. A closer game saw Sherrer slide past Baliant with a 50-30 tally.
