After Week 6 action, one team in each conference remains unbeaten. Teams jockeying for postseason berths can cap their markers and begin drawing targets.
Last week, C&Ds became the Anthracite Curling Club league’s only undefeated and untied team, defeating Team RAMROD, 7-4.
C&Ds is the league’s only team with 4 wins in as many games. They top the Chestnut Division by two points with a game in-hand and are clearly the odds-on favorites in the Fell Conference.
The team continues its tour through the Buckwheat Division in the next two weeks, getting a good gauge on where it stands in the conference.
Last week, Lyons turned aside a rejuvenated Schoolhouse Rocks! team, 6-3. SR! drops to 1-5 on the season after competing the previous weekend at the GNCC Arena Club Championships in Vermont.
Like C&Ds, Lyons holds a two-point lead in the Stove Division, with a game in-hand on Goody’s.
Lyons faces Fifteen this week, a team reeling from consecutive defeats. Last week, the team that was looking to supplant first-place Whippersnappers in the Steamboat Division, lost 6-4 to Goody’s.
The win puts Goody’s numerically close to Lyons in the Stove Division, hoping the leaders stumble a bit down the stretch.
Whippersnappers took its first loss of the season last week, and missed a chance to move more than a game ahead of Fifteen in the Steamboat Division. Cracked Ice took down the previously unbeaten side, 7-2.
Cracked Ice has won two straight draws and at 2-2, remains a threat in the Chestnut Division. Falling to the bottom of the division after two straight losses, but only three games played, is Boss Hog-Line, which fell, 3-2, to Stone Cold in a 5-end slog.
The win, combined with 5-2 Blind Squirrels loss to WINOs last week, creates a three-way tie in the Buckwheat Division between the Squirrels, RAMROD, and Stone Cold. MLC is one point behind, with a game in-hand on each.
WINOs’ victory is the team’s third consecutive and puts them just two points behind C&Ds, but in one more game.
