Untimely threes cost McCannell spot in Super League playoffs

Curtis McCannell’s team struggled in its final Brandon Sun Westman Super League of Curling game on Wednesday and it cost them a spot in the playoffs.

McCannell’s Pilot Mound squad (5-6) gave up threes in the first and fifth ends at the Brandon Curling Club as they fell 8-2 to Brandon’s Kelly Skinner (5-6). That loss, combined with Brian Fowler’s team beating fellow Brandonite Cale Dunbar 8-4, ended McCannell’s hopes of making the final six or a tiebreaker.

In Wednesday’s other games, it was: Terry McNamee 5, Jim Renwick 2; Kelly Marnoch 6, Perry Fisher 5; Duane Lang 8, Jerry Chudley 5; and Shawn Taylor 4, Mark Anderson 3.

Fowler 8 Dunbar 4

Fowler’s squad took control with a three in the fifth end and then stole three points over the next two to make the playoffs, joining Renwick and Dunbar in a tie for fourth at 6-5.

McNamee 5 Renwick 2

In a battle of Brandon teams, McNamee (10-1) and his first-place team posted deuces in the second and seventh ends before running Renwick out of stones.

Marnoch 6 Fisher 5

Carberry’s Marnoch (9-2), who finished second and will have a first-round bye in the playoffs, stole a pair in the third and used the hammer to get his single in the eighth end and top Wawanesa’s Fisher (4-7).

Lang 8 Chudley 5

Lang (5-6), a Riverview skip who reached last year’s final, stole points in the final two ends to send Neepawa’s Chudley (7-4) into the playoffs on a losing note.

Taylor 4 Anderson 3

In a battle of the cellar dwellers, Taylor (2-9) strolled out to an early 3-0 lead and scored his single in the eighth to top fellow Brandonite Anderson (1-10), who curls out of the Riverview club.
