The winning A final team of Brenda Drummond

Drummond disco queen at bonspiel

Brenda Drummond's side takes the A final in disco-themed ladies bonspiel.

It didn’t quite descend to everybody kung-fu fighting, but the Broughton Curling Club’s disco-themed ladies bonspiel still featured some great battles on the ice.

After Friday night and Saturday afternoon’s games set the playoffs, the ladies reconvened for dinner prior to a Saturday Night Fever finals session.

All four sheets were in action as the ladies — many sporting head-scarves, Farrah Fawcetts or disco wigs — played the six-end finals.

The A final pitted Brenda Drummond against Meagan Cadwallader.

Drummond and her team of Connie Floyd, Jenn Barowet and Melody Wilson took one from the first end and went on to extend that lead to substantial 6-0 in the next two ends.

Cadwallader and her team of Christina McDonald, Naomi Stead and Lori Walker were able to pull one back in the fourth, but after some solid drawing in the fifth gave one more to Drummond they had an all but impossible task in the final end.

They had a glimmer of hope when Drummond’s side inadvertently cleared two of their own from the top of the house, but couldn’t find the weight to place the needed rocks in scoring positions and conceded the game after running out of stones.

Over on the B final sheet a similar story was unfolding as Bonnie Sharpe’s side took a commanding lead over Maggie Loland and her team.

Sharpe’s side of Annetta Murgatroyd, Leslie Lasota and Sandy Walton had big ends in the second and fourth to lead 8-3 going into the final end.

Despite taking the third and fifth, Loland, along with Denise Blid, Stephanie Manke and Shirley Williams, faced an uphill battle in the final end and the lead of five proved too much to claim back, giving Sharpe the victory.

The C final came down to a compelling conclusion, Coleen Broekhuizen’s side dropping two in the first end to Deb Anderson and her teammates before taking six over the next four ends in a tightly-contested battle.

This left Anderson needing four in the final end to tie, and with both sides eschewing guards and playing an open drawing game it made for an interesting end.

Anderson did have six in the house, but tight drawing from Broekhuizen meant that Anderson was left with an impossible takeout shot to clear the three stones needed while leaving her own intact, Broekhuizen taking the win.

The fourth sheet saw Jessica Garrick’s side edge out Nadia Ramnarine’s after a back-and-forth consolation battle.

Ramnarine needed a takeout with the hammer to earn victory but the assembled guards in front of the house left too narrow a gap for the skip to find.

Organizer Keith Balke said, “It was a good weekend. I think the girls had fun.”

The club is holding its mixed bonspiel on Feb. 15-17 — this time with a country and western theme.
