Mohawk women rock on to third win

red-curling-rockErin Walker’s Mohawk women’s team made quick work of Algoma from Sault Ste. Marie in the late draw Friday (Feb. 15) at the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association Curling Championships in St. Thomas.

The Mountaineers slid to their third win in as many tries, 8-0, over the Thunderbirds. The game lasted for only three ends, as Mohawk scored five in the first end, then stole two in the second and one more in the third.

The Walker rink’s second win was an 8-5 decision over Fleming College Friday morning. A four ender in the second got the Mountaineers going.

Walker and company were to play London Fanshawe on Saturday at noon.

Meanwhile, the Mohawk men continue to struggle. Wesley Steen’s rink dropped a 13-3 six-end decision to Confederation College of Thunder Bay. The Thunderhawks scored four in each of the first and third ends, as the Mountaineers saw their record fall to 1-5.

Mohawk next faces Sault College Saturday at noon.

Earlier on Friday, Steen’s rink picked up its lone win, edging Niagara Knights 6-4. The Steen foursome scored three in the second end, then singles in ends four, five and seven. The victory followed a 10-3 loss to Fanshawe. The Falcons scored two in the first, three in the third and stole four in the fourth end.
