Men’s League at the Drumheller Curl­ing Club wrapped up and the Easter Rink took the win over the Ken Olsen team.

The fi­nal for the sea­son was played out on March 29 and David Easter says it was an ex­cit­ing fin­ish. Af­ter blank­ing the first end, they gave up a steal of 3 in the sec­ond end to go down early. The team was a lit­tle rocky the next cou­ple of ends and were down 5-2 af­ter 4.

“We turned it up af­ter I made a draw for two in the fifth and played an amaz­ing sixth end, manag­ing to steal one to tie the game 5-5,” he said. “The team was on fire in the sev­enth end and we got a cru­cial steal of two points to lead by two head­ing into the fi­nal end.”

The team didn’t miss a shot in the eighth and were able to run their op­po­nent out of stones with a run­back take­out on the fi­nal shot.

Easter said it was a team ef­fort as James MacDon­ald, Kayla Clampitt, and Jay Mul­grew all played re­ally well and gave their all sweep­ing through­out the game.

“James and Kayla es­pe­cially worked hard in the last end by sweep­ing a num­ber of rocks end to end and help­ing us make some key shots to seal the deal,” he said. “It was a great sea­son in which we only lost two games, and we’re very ex­cited to have won the cham­pi­onship af­ter fin­ish­ing sec­ond last year!”
