Squirrels use in-turns, turn that mutha out to stay in first July 5, 2010

Things appear back on-track, and not a moment too soon.

Following a gut-checking two-game losing streak, the Blind Squirrels erased those bad memories and took care of Cracked Ice last week, 7-3. The win keeps the Squirrels atop the Buckwheat Division standings of Anthracite Curling Club’s 2010 Summer League.

Only three games remain on the regular season schedule, and since the beginning, the Squirrels have set the winning pace in the division. All along the way however, they’ve had company.

Also last week, Stone Cold (who forced a tie with the Squirrels earlier this year) defeated the previously unbeaten C&Ds squad to build a similar 3-2-1 record as the Squirrels. The Squirrels face C&Ds this week at 8 p.m. on Sheet 2 in Wilkes-Barre.

To get back to winning ways, the Squirrels jumped on their opponent early, and scored often. This is exactly what was not happening during the losing streak. In each of those games, the Squirrels got behind 4-0 in each game. Last week, it was the complete opposite.

“We played on Sheet 1 last week and we really struggled,” Skip Joshua Sophy said. “We had a plan, and we all executed our shots. We were turning in on a lot of shots. That allowed us to turn this mutha out.”

The Squirrels hung 2s on the scoreboard in the 1st and 2nd ends and Cracked Ice responded with a point in the 3rd. In that third, the Squirrels were sitting on three points, but Cracked Ice Skip Ted Karampilas was able to nestle a shot in the house for the score. He foiled scoring plans in the 5th and 7th ends, too.

In each end, the Squirrels had numerous rocks in the house, including a 5’er in the 6th end. They could only manage one point in that end.
