First Place and Off to the Playoffs!
From SK Third Jolene: “Another 2 win day and we have finished in 1st place!!! Can’t ask for more than that I guess.
We played two solid teams today in BC and MB. The BC game came down to last rock, Max (with perfect sweeping) locked on a dead freeze on his last rock that left the BC skip a really tough shot for the win and we managed to steal the victory. In tonights game we were a little less conventional giving up a 4 ball in the first end. Luckily team MB was happy to keep a million rocks in play and we bounced back with a field goal in the 2nd end. We forced them to a single in 3 and picked up 1 of our own in 4 going to the break 1 down. In the 5th end we started to get serious and managed to steal a pair and another steal of 2 in 6 did the job.
Teejay, Kim and I did a bit of shopping this morning, had to find some presents to take home to our girls : ) I can’t believe it is finally only 2 more sleeps until we get home to our kids. Did you know that every player on this team has 2 daughters? Kind of neat … Teejay and I got some insight into what is to come from Kim, haha.
Basically the day was pretty quiet. I wasn’t feeling the best today, so I am back in the room a bit early to make sure I feel better tomorrow. Two big games tomorrow and then we get to have one final night out with all of the amazing new friends we have made here. The closing banquet tomorrow night should be a blast and I believe it is followed up with some live entertainment … good thing we brought our dancing shoes. Did I mention Kim and Max have already had their dancing shoes on display? I really cannot wait for what is going to be an amazing day. Of course I hope to face off against my good friends from the NWT, in the final, so let’s get behind them as well … would make for a great final! First thing is first, we play BC in the morning and I am sure they will be looking for revenge, so we will need to bring it.
Thank you so much for all of the support and messages, we will work hard tomorrow to bring home the championship!
