Humphrey: We played our first game at

only went 5 ends and we ran out of time to try to catch up as
they only give us 1 1/2 hours and it started a bit late. The
girls had a lot of fun and did well in the Hot Shots
competition. They scored 25 points for draws and 12 for
take-outs for a total of 37 points. (Tiffany Graves)
Friday April 8
We won our game against Beaverton this morning 8-4. It was a
very close game all the way through.
In the last end we were up by one point and had 3 rocks
on the top right of the twelve foot. There was one centre
guard. They had hammer and could
have drawn in with their last rock to tie it up as it was wide open on one
side. Instead, their skip tried to take out our three rocks
missed. Luckily it worked out for us and we won.

extra ends to win. In the second game they were tied going home with
the hammer and after a bunch of perfect peels, Nicole had to draw to the
button for the win, which she did. In the last game they were down 2

6th and then 2 in the 7th. They did not finish the eighth as they ran their
opposition out of rocks. They played extremely well to say the least.
