Wednesday Evening Ladder League

Ebbett and Nicholson teams win Wed. evening Ladder League final round

The Wednesday evening Ladder League wrapped up for the season tonight, with the Shelley Ebbett team winning the A pool and the Kim Nicholson team taking the B for round three.

Shelley is curling in the Canadian Masters in Saskatoon, and Colleen Soltermann was also not curling this week, so team members Paulette Richard and Kim Pippy had a couple of spares for the final night, but will ensure that the gift certificates from Clow’s Red and White get to their rightful owners. Going into the final night, both Ebbett and Rachael MacLean were tied in number of wins, and both won their games tonight, so we looked at head to head results. Ebbett beat MacLean in their round robin encounter and took the gift certificates.

In the B pool, first place was a battle between the Kim Nicholson and Josh MacInnis rinks, who, as it happened were playing each other. Kim picked up the win and the gift certificates and notepad from New Glasgow Lobster Suppers.

Thanks to everyone who curled in our Ladder League again this year!

Thanks also to our round 3 sponsors, Clow’s Red and White, and New Glasgow Lobster Suppers!

Josh McInnis and Ray Biagé rinks win Wed. Ladder League Round Two

Although both teams lost their final game, the Josh McInnis and Ray Biagé teams won the Wendy’s “A” pool and Lowther’s Snow Removal “B” pool, respectively, as round two wrapped up this week in the Wednesday evening Ladder League. Both teams had only two losses in the round.

(L-R): Bob Deziel, Jesse Kennedy, Mitch Dunphy, Josh McInnis

Last round’s “A” winner, the Shelley Ebbett team, had the same win-loss record as the McInnis rink, but lost to them in their round robin encounter, so they missed out on the Wendy’s gift certificates from sponsor D.P. Murphy Inc.

The Biagé team won the “B” pool thanks to Mark MacDonald, who picked up a win over Rachel MacLean in a final-night battle of second-place teams. Had MacLean won, she would have taken the first place prize from sponsor Lowther’s Snow Removal (gift certificates for the Cornwall Curling Club), as she and Biagé would have had the same record (two losses), and she had beaten Biagé in their round robin match. Since the Biagé foursome had beaten the MacDonald team in their game, they won the round via the head-to-head results.

(L-R): Ray Biagé, Rick Doiron, Rebecca Rolfe, Derek MacEwen

On the final night, Biagé, who was guaranteed first place with a win, was in a see-saw battle with Kelly Watts, and needed a deuce in the final end for the win, but had to settle for a single, and a tie game. In the draw to the button to determine the winner, both teams came short of the rings on their first attempt, but found the house on their second, with Watts coming closer to the button.

Looking at the teams for the next round, which will be only six weeks, Biagé, MacDonald, and MacLean will all be going up the ladder to the A pool, while Emily Sanderson, with two wins, (including a win over the first place team on the last night) will be going down the ladder to the “B”. There was a log jam of four teams with three wins in the “A” pool – Kim Nicholson, Paul Neima, Rob Gallant, and Greg Robertson. Amazingly (or good planning?), Neima’s three wins came at the hands of all three of the other teams, so he’s “safe” in A.
Gallant beat the two remaining teams – Nicholson and Robertson, so he’s safe, too.
That leaves the Kim Nicholson and Greg Robertson teams to join the Emily Sanderson foursome in the trip down the ladder to the “B” pool.

We’ll do the Round 3 draw in the next day or two. It looks like either surf or turf is on the menu for the last round winners, as the “A” pool will be sponsored by Robert I. Clow Ltd. (aka Clow’s Red and White in Hampshire, famous for their meat), while the “B” is sponsored by New Glasgow Lobster Suppers.

Ebbett, Sanderson rinks win Wednesday Ladder League round one, Pools set for round two

Round one of the Wednesday Evening Ladder League concluded Wednesday evening, with the Shelley Ebbett rink winning the “A” Pool, and the Emily Sanderson rink taking the “B”. The Ebbett rink and the Kim Nicholson team were tied going into their final game, against each other, but Ebbett, and her team of Kim Pippy and Paulette Richard, helped out by Joe Callaghan who was sparing for Colleen Soltermann, were on their game this evening, and picked up the win. The Sanderson team were leading by a couple of games and had secured the B Pool top spot before tonight’s match. Other members of the team are Emma Coffin, Kaylee Stewart, and AnnaMaria MacDonald. The Ebbett team won $25 Cornwall Curling Club gift certificates, courtesy of sponsor Lowther’s Snow Removal, while the Sanderson squad won $20 gift certificates for Sam’s Cornwall Restaurant.

The pools for Round Two have now been determined, with the Rachel MacLean, Greg Groves, and Mark MacDonald rinks moving from A to B, and the Emily Sanderson, Rob Gallant, and Greg Robertson teams moving from B to A. MacDonald was tied with Josh McInnis at 4 losses each, but McInnis beat them 7-5 in their round one game and gets to stay in the A pool. We’ll post the full Round Two schedule as soon as we can.

Here are the Round Two pools:

A Pool

No curling on Oct. 31 due to Hallowe’en. 

Following Qualifier Night, the A and B pools have been determined for the first round of the Wednesday evening Ladder League, sponsored by Lowther’s Snow Removal (A Pool) and Sam’s Cornwall Restaurant (B Pool). I put the teams in random order within each pool for the first round using the Random.org list randomizer.

A Pool teams

  • A1-Mark MacDonald
  • A2-Lauren Ferguson
  • A3-Shelley Ebbett
  • A4-Kim Nicholson
  • A5-Josh McInnis
  • A6-Paul Neima
  • A7-Rachel MacLean
  • A8-Greg Groves

B Pool teams 

  • B1-Greg Robertson
  • B2-Peter Joostema
  • B3-David Younker
  • B4-Emily Sanderson
  • B5-Ray Biagé
  • B6-Rob Gallant
  • B7-Kelly Watts
  • B8-Hank Kamphuis

The “B” pool gets the early draw the first week, as they had the late draw for the last week last season.

We will be using the same 8 team, 4 sheet draw (above) from Curling Canada that we used last year.

Qualifier Night draw for Oct. 24.

6:30 pm
Ice 1: Paul Neima vs Greg Robertson
Ice 2: Rachel MacLean vs Emily Sanderson
Ice 3: Lauren Ferguson vs Peter Joostema
Ice 4: David Younker vs Josh McInnis

8:30 pm
Ice 1: Greg Groves vs Rob Gallant
Ice 2: Kelly Watts vs Mark MacDonald
Ice 3: Hank Kamphuis vs Kim Nicholson
Ice 4: Shelley Ebbett vs Ray Biagé

Updated: Wed. evening Ladder League Qualifier Night (roster change, and times swapped on Ice 3)

Note: we received a request from the Kamphuis team to move their game to 8:30 (two team members helping with harvest), so the Ferguson vs Joostema game will now go to 6:30, while the Kamphuis vs Nicholson game will go to 8:30. We also have a roster change.

We’re back for another season of the Wednesday evening Ladder League, and are pleased to announce a full roster of 16 teams, which will be divided into two pools of eight. This Wednesday evening, October 24, will be Qualifier Night, where your team will play another team chosen at random, with the winning team going into the A pool and the non-winning team going to the B for Round One, which will be sponsored by Don Lowther Snow Removal and Sam’s Family Restaurant.

Please note that, after consultation with the Club and based on past turnout, there will be NO CURLING on Hallowe’en evening October 31, so the first round following Qualifier Night will start on November 7 and continue for seven weeks up to Dec. 19. We will not be curling on Boxing Day (December 26), so round two will start on Jan. 2 and run through Feb. 13. The final round will start Feb. 20 and runs through April 3rd, just before the closing spiel.

As there are no weeks to spare, please note that any missing nights due to weather or other factors will NOT be played. At the end of the first and second rounds, the three A Pool teams with the fewest points will swap places with the three B Pool teams with the most. There will be prizes (generally gift certificates) for the winning A and B pool teams in each of the three rounds, courtesy of our generous sponsors. See the Rules (below) for more.

Here are the team rosters I have been sent. Note there are a couple of names missing, and there are likely misspellings, too. Feel free to email me any additions or corrections.

Rules (credit: some come from the Ottawa Curling Club’s Ladder League)

  • Open (all male, all female, or any combination) semi-competitive league. Any player can play any position, and you can change from game to game.
  • In each round (after qualifier night) you receive 3 game points for a win, 1 game point for a loss, 0 game points for a loss by default. Mark this and your team’s points scored (“score points”) on the scoresheet. In the case of a default, award one score point per end to the winning team. In the case of a tie, award an additional score point for the draw to the button winner. If your score is not marked and you win, you will get one score point more than the losing team. If you lose and your score is not marked, you will receive zero score points.
  • In the event of a default, the non-defaulting team will receive one score point for each scheduled end.
  • To break ties at the end of the round between teams with the same record, the tied teams are ranked by applying the following rules in order until one tie is broken. If a one or more ties remain, the rules are applied to each tie starting from rule 1. The process continues until all ties are broken and all teams are ranked.
    1. The teams are ranked using their head-to-head record against the other teams in the tie.
    2. The teams are ranked using the point differential for their games in the round against the other teams in the tieThe teams are ranked using the point differential for all the games in the round against all teams
    3. The teams are ranked using their initial ranking in the round
  • Ties: Decided by the skip or other designated player throwing a rock to the button, with sweeping (by your team only) permitted. The closest team will win. If neither team puts a rock in the house, the rocks are thrown again.
  • Avoiding defaults/using spares: At least one regular team member (and three players in total) must be present for the game to count, or else a default is posted.  Spares should not play a higher position than the player replaced.
  • Storms: Any games cancelled due to storms, etc. will NOT be played. 
  • Teams may reschedule games to a different date and /or time by mutual consent. but ice time is often hard to find.
  • The buzzer will be used to ensure the teams are off the ice within the 2-hour time period.  If the buzzer sounds, teams will complete the current end in play to finish  the game. If tied, the standard draw to the button will then take place.

Good curling!
