Super League curling playoff positioning decided

The host Pioneer Hybrid team of Canora, skipped by Brandon Zuravloff, clinched a spot in the Championship playoff event on Jan. 10.
After the completion of the final round of round robin play, playoff matchups are set for the Duck Mountain Super League championships in Canora on Jan. 10.


The final two weeks of round robin play in the Duck Mountain Super League have been competed, setting the stage for the playoffs coming up in Canora, according to a release from Glen Becenko of Kamsack.

Week seven games were held in Norquay.

“The club got the ice in just in time, so it was a little green as we curlers say, which made for some interesting games,” said Becenko.

Since there are only three sheets of ice in Norquay there were two draws held, at 6:45 and 9 p.m. In the early draw, Swan Valley Chiropractic lost its first game at the hands of the defending champs, also from Swan River, Swan Hills Properties, by 7 to 5. Also in the first draw it was W.F. Schneider and Son improving their record by beating Hub International 5 to 2.  In the late draw it saw local team Challoner Farms with home ice advantage take an early lead and go on to victory over NCC Farms by 7 to 3. 

On the other sheet it was Pioneer Hybrid narrowly hanging on with a steal of one in the eighth end over Pattison Ag by 6 to 5. Both Hub International and Pattison Ag remained winless.

The following day one makeup game from an earlier draw was held in Swan River on a very cool evening. The team of Swan Valley Properties handed Pattison Ag yet another defeat of 7 to 0.

The final round robin games took place in Benito, Man, on Jan. 3

The only game that had any real meaning in the standings  saw Pioneer Hybrid of Canora hold on to beat NCC, Farms 5 to 3, ensuring them a spot in the Championship event. In other action it was Challoner Farms over Pattison Ag 7 to 3, leaving them winless in this year’s competition.  Also going through this year’s play coming close but not getting in the win column was Hub International, losing to Swan Valley Properties 5 to 3.

“In the last game we saw Swan Valley Chiropractic improve their record, handing W.F. Schneider and Sons only their second loss by 8 to 5,” said Becenko.

The Championship had top team Swan Valley Chiropractic(6-1) take on fourth place team W.F. Schneider and Sons (5-2). The other draw would see last year’s champion Swan Hills Properties e (5-2), finishing in second, play local team Pioneer Hybrid from Canora, also with a (5-2) record. 

On the B side it was NCC Farms (3-4) taking on Hub International (0-6). The other game was to feature Challoner Farms (3-4) against Pattison Ag (0-6). 

“Had Pattison Ag and Hub International been able to play the game they missed against each other during round robin play, one of them would have had a Big W,” observed Becenko. “Better  luck next year boys!”

The finals were set for Jan. 10, starting at 6:45 p.m. in Canora, with finals in both events at 9.
