Fisher forces four-way tie for final playoff spot

Wawanesa’s Perry Fisher kept his season alive and forced two rounds of tiebreakers in the Brandon Sun Westman Super League of Curling late Wednesday night by defeating Pilot Mound’s Curtis McCannell 7-2 in five ends.

McCannell (5-6) could have clinched a playoff spot with a victory, but gave up deuces in the first two ends and a three in the fifth to fall into a four-way tie for the sixth and final playoff spot with Fisher, Carberry’s Kelly Marnoch and Brandon’s Kelly Skinner.

In Wednesday’s other games at the Brandon Curling Club, it was: Skinner 6, Terry McNamee 5; Marnoch 6, Mark Anderson 2; Brian Fowler 8, Jerry Chudley 2; Duane Lang 7, Rob Van Kommer 2; and Jim Renwick 6, Tina Kozak 2.

Skinner 6 McNamee 5

Skinner stole two in the second end and scored one with the hammer in the eighth to slip past Brandon’s McNamee (9-2) and into the tiebreakers. McNamee finished the regular season in second place.

Fowler 8 Chudley 2

Brandon’s Fowler (6-5) scored three in the sixth and stole two in the seventh to secure a playoff spot. Neepawa’s Chudley (6-5) managed a pair of singles and will have a rematch with Fowler in the first round of the playoffs on Feb. 3.

Marnoch 6 Anderson 2

Marnoch stole three in the third end and two more in the fourth to secure his spot in the tiebreakers. Anderson (0-11), who curls out of the Riverview club, managed singles in the first and sixth ends, before shaking hands.

Lang 7 Van Kommer 2

In his first year as a skip, Duane Lang (10-1) finished on top of the league standings. Lang’s Riverview foursome scored three in the third end to take a 4-2 lead and stole three points after that to end the playoff hopes of Van Kommer’s Carberry team (4-7).

Renwick 6 Kozak 2

Brandon’s Renwick (8-3) scored a pair of deuces early to secure the win and third place in the standings. Kozak’s Carberry squad (3-8) managed a pair of singles in the six-end game.
