Week 17 Details

What’s up Wednesday Nighters?

Warm weather this week might wreak havoc for those acclimated to a colder regime.  The ice could slow down, causing a few limp wristed leads early in the game.  The battle for the top continues as Lockwood is in striking range this week.

  • Boomer – Jansen:  Deadlock.  Both rinks have had some success against higher ranked teams, but both have struggled stringing wins together.  Boomer will lead early, but Jansen will stage a coup.
  • Arndt – Dubois:  Another close match.  Dubois is just a tic behind the leaders and Arndt is close on their heels, Arndt is coming off of a loss while Dubois returns from their bye week.  I think Arndt wants it a little more this week and will prove victorious.
  • Lawrence – Kruse:  Same situation as the Arndt – Dubois match.  Here both rinks are tending their wounds from last week’s losses.  Another close one, but I think Lawrence will suffer heat stroke and allow Kruse to scratch out a win.
  • Wangensteen – Erickson:  Wangensteen has a few more wins this season but Erickson is still riding high off their victory against Arndt last week.  Look for Erickson to upset a scantily clad Wangensteen.
  • Stanek – Dveris:  Stanek has struggled to produce wins this season and Dveris has been only moderately more successful.  If Dveris can keep their heads in the game, they can pull this one off.
  • McLellan – Anderson:  Every match McLellan plays shows progress.  The entire team is in year one and it’s great to see them out there having a good time regardless of the score.  I expect Anderson to take the match and to impart a fair amount of wisdom on McLellan at the same time.
  • Beranek – Lockwood:  Fitting that this match should be on sheet five because it should be a great one to watch.  Lockwood is playing to tie first while Beranek will be playing to tie up second place.  I expect heavy traffic above the house with one and two point ends for most of the night.  Selfishly, I’d like to see Beranek win to improve our chances of rising up the ranks.  This one is going to go to extra ends with Lockwood taking the late night victory.
  • McGovern – Sonnabend:  Keep your eye on sheet one when you’re not watching five.  Sonnabend will be trying to keep the entire league at arms length while McGovern will be working hard to prove that they can play with anyone in the league.  To compound the nerves, it’s rumored that the Sonnabend rink might have some family in attendance which could cause internal inconsistencies.  A coin flip mix up will fluster Sonnabend early, let’s hope it’s enough to give McGovern the edge.

This is it.  Down to the last four matches.  There’s still time to make your move, but that time is quickly dwindling.  Let’s keep it clean.  Good curling.

Comments

  1. The only coin flip mix up possible for Sonnabend would be if the coin was flipped and for a second Sonnabend thought they had the win… because we always lose the flip
    See you on the ice!

  2. I spent last weekend playing a bunch of high school and college punks from the Detroit Lakes/Fargo area. Lots of uniforms, crackly voices, and cocky calls. Looking forward to be back at SPCC tonight.

  3. However it ends up, it should be a good match. I heard that thehogline.com is sending out a video crew. Lots of media hype might be a distraction for either rink.
