Late last week, our shipment of three sets of stones arrived from Brooks Curling Club in Alberta, Canada, and after the final two teams take their Bye weeks in Summerspiel this week, we’ll be playing four draws at the same time in Club history.
That shouldn’t downplay the excitement on the ice for Tuesday’s three draws. Two teams with wins in their first two games will be looking to keep pace with the tournament’s overall leaders while four teams will be looking for their first win at Summerspiel.
All the action starts at 6 p.m. at The Ice Rink at Coal Street in Wilkes-Barre. On Sheet 1, it will be the draw where something has to give as a pair of 0-2 teams look to make their first mark in the win column when Bitter End faces Cracked Ice.
Platoon has been playing some tight draws with tough opponents and will look to play the part of Summerspiel giant killer when it faces Team Binghamton on Sheet 2. Binghamton has started 2-0 in Summespiel after finishing the last regular season strong.
On Sheet 3, Team Piatt will be looking for its first win of Summerspiel when it faces familiar foe, Squirrels, who’ve jumped to a 2-0 start. Piatt’s team advanced to the Spring League’s finals on the back of strong play down the stretch but hasn’t cracked the win column yet.
