Currie, Callaghan teams win Wed. Eve. Ladder League round 1. Next round starts Dec. 21

Round one of the Wednesday Evening Ladder League wrapped up Dec. 14, with the team of Karen Currie, Angela Sanderson, Melissa Creighton, Sharon Campbell, and Jenine Bodner going 5-2 win-loss to capture the “A” pool, while the Joe Callaghan rink, which includes Terry MacCormac, Amber Robb, and Clara Jack, won the “B”, also with a 5-2 record. Teams skipped by Greg Groves and Mark MacDonald also had only 2 losses in Pool A, but one of their losses was to Currie. Callaghan beat the other 5-2 teams, skipped by Paul Neima and Doug Callin in Pool B.

Teams Callaghan, Neima, and Callin will be climbing the ladder to the “A” pool for Round 2, starting December 21st, while teams skipped by Peter Joostema, Colin MacKenzie, and Greg Robertson will be descending the ladder to pool B.

There were 4 teams with 4 losses in the “A” pool, skipped by Norman Boswall, Tyler MacKenzie, Greg Robertson, and Colin MacKenzie, so determining the last two spots to drop down was complicated, The Colin MacKenzie rink volunteered to drop down, leaving only 1 spot. 

None of these teams beat both of the others, so we look at point differentials between the three affected teams. Nov. 30 game between Robertson and Boswall was scheduled for 8 ends while the rest of the games that evening were 4 ends, so we have divided points in the 8 end game by 2.

Boswall: Points for vs T.MacKenzie 6
Points against (vs Robertson) divided by 2: 3.5
Point differential: 2.5

T.MacKenzie: Points for vs Robertson 7
Points against vs Boswall 6 
Point differential: 1

Robertson: Points for vs Boswall 3.5
Points against vs MacKenzie: 7
Points differential: minus 3.5

Robertson had a minus point differential and will go to B.
