Stacey feat. The Ice Techs (Matt Lyons, Brandon Jackson, Tom McGreevy and Stacey Berkoski) completed a clean sweep through the competition at Anthracite Curling Club’s Summerspiel competition, finishing atop the mini-league standings with a 5-0 record.
The team, once mired in a last-place tie during the Club’s most recent Spring/Summer League and propelled to the league championship in less than two months completed an undefeated Summerspiel with a win over Team Binghamton in the league finale.
Seven teams played five games each during a six-week calendar slot at The Ice Rink at Coal Street. Thanks to all the curlers who were able to attend draws and make the competition a success.
Tuesday couldn’t have gone any easier for Stacey feat. The Ice Techs. The undefeated leaders at Summerspiel earned a forfeit victory over a mostly-absent Happy Hour crew to move to 4-0 at the summer tournament.
Team Binghamton had one of its best nights on the ice in disposing of Team Piatt, 8-1, on Sheet 2. The win keeps the team within reach of first place with a draw against the leaders this Tuesday. A win in that game would force a two-way tie for first place at Summerspiel.
On Sheet 3, Platoon earned its second consecutive win of Summerspiel by defeating Cracked Ice.
In the first-ever draw on Sheet 4 at Anthracite Curling Club, Squirrels earned a 4-3 win over Bitter End, keeping the team alive for a first-place finish at Summerspiel. If Binghamton defeats SfIT on Tuesday and Squirrels wins it final draw, there will be a three-way tie for first place.
