Close call at curl­ing nats

Central Leader - - SPORT -

Young Auck­land curlers are keep­ing their South Is­land coun­ter­parts on their toes.

Mt Eden’s Chelsea Far­ley and Tessa Far­ley, cen­tral Auck­land’s Thivya Je­yaran­jan and Eleanor Ad­viento swept their way to a sil­ver medal at the national curl­ing cham­pi­onships in Dunedin from July 12 to 14.

They played a tight best-of-five se­ries which went to the fifth game and man­aged an im­pres­sive come­back from 9-2 down to win the fourth game.

But it was ex­pe­ri­ence that won on the day and New Zealand se­nior women’s skip Wendy Becker led her team to a 9-1 win in the de­cid­ing game.
