Sophy and Montone sweep during an exhibition match loss to MLC a few weeks ago.

The Blind Squirrels take the ice in Wilkes-Barre tonight at 8 with its aim on staying in first place of Anthracite Curling Club’s Buckwheat Division. The team faces a squad Skipped by John Flyte (who appeared on the WNEP story about the club two months ago).

Last week’s 9-3 victory over division foe Team RAMROD combined with the prospect of a Bye week on May 27 has the

team hungry for a win tonight. Though it’s early, the Squirrels want to avoid sitting on a loss for at least two weeks.

“No one ever wants to head into the Bye week with a loss,” Skip Joshua Sophy said earlier this week. “It’s important for us to avoid the times during the draw when we seem to lose our focus. If we can do that, and do the things we do correctly, it’s up to us.”

Team Flyte is looking for its first win of the season, after falling 6-2 last week to MLC, another Buckwheat Division foe. Tonight’s draws should give an early indication of the division strengths before each team ventures out to play the rest of the league. Team RAMROD will look to avenge its loss to the Squirrels last week when it faces MLC tonight, also at 8.
