Score 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Kauffman 2.200* 1     3 6   9          

Both teams are out of contention. I'm not sure why they are playing it, especially since the bar is open. Stay tuned for the half-way point - the losing team will be playing without pants!

  1. They are still playing....
  2. Tilker, subbing for Guzman makes a nice shot. Still playing the 2nd end - they may run out of time at this pace...
  3. Still playing!
  4. They should stack their brooms for a break at the bar.
  5. Guzman takes 3 to force Kauffman's team to play with no pants!
  6. What's going on? They're still wearing pants? I can't believe are going to renege on the bet. There are a ton of rocks in play!
  7. The officials declared a uniform violation to prevent the Kauffman team from removing their pants. Betty was also concerned that they might dribble on the ice.
  8. Guzman steals another in this game that still means nothing - except bragging rights to them. :)
  9. Really? Still playing?
  10. Somehow they made up some time. Kauffman scores one- not quite enough....

  1. Clark made a nice come-around draw to the four foot. Beighton's rock was overswept on the run-back and rolled out to leave Clark with a steal of one.
  2. Free guard zone appears wasted on this end. House remains clear into second stones. Survey says that Beighton needs to lose the hat. Clark's first shot to the top of the 4 foot in attempt to force Beighton to one. Beighton's first shot removes Clark's stone and rolls to the left 12 foot.

Lehto's shot which his sweepers save again, over curls a tad but comes into bite the 8 foot taking away the double. Turns out Beighton's front end needed a little more muscle as his tap wrecks on the guard. Clark could have opted for a high risk hit to sit 4 but chose to play it safe and guard his 2.
