Erskine’s Danny Brown takes Curling Super League crown

The first end had all 16 rocks in play

A draw to the button decided the final for this year’s Curling Super League and Danny Brown’s rink from Erskine took the cash.

Brown faced Dan McArther and the boys from Delburne in a skins game with $1,200 up for grabs.

Both teams came to an agreement to make it a six-end final match and it was a back and forth battle for the entire game.

The first two ends were worth $100 and the cash increased with each end.

Brown, who is known for playing a clean game with a lot of take-outs, had to adjust his strategy for the skins format where you must score 2 points or steal 1 to get the money. The hammer switches every end.

The first end had all 16 rocks in play and set the pace for an intense final match.

It was a game of impossible angles, narrow holes, and exact weights as the money switched hands every end.

McArther made an amazing long raise take-out in the fifth end setting himself up for the steal and $250. Brown countered with a precise hit and roll but McArther still managed to steal his point and the cash.

The last and final end resulted in a push where a draw to the button decided who took the final $350.

McArther threw first and came up short of the house allowing Brown’s rink to sweep him to victory as he put his final rock in the rings.

Only $100 separated the teams in the end.

Curling Super League started three years ago between Erskine and Delburne, and this year Bashaw as well.

Teams from Erskine, Delburne, Bashaw, Elnora and Halkirk all played in the league based on cash buy in and it was very competitive curling.

Semi-finals began at 7 p.m., finals started 9:30.

Theresa’s Catering provided beef on a bun for all the curlers and fans.
