The Kerrisdale Eagles took on the West Vancouver Wolverines in Round 1 action in the Top 10. And the names weren't the only new thing. The club's new purple and yellow shirts got their debut. It was successful all around as the home Kerrisdale 10 took out West Van 3 games to 1 with a +16 shot differential. Everyone had something to brag about by the end of the evening.
The first match finished was the singles (as always) and John Aveline fought off adetermined opponent 21-17.
At that point Kerrisdale looked pretty comfortable with a big lead in the fours and two very close scores in the pairs and triples.
The fours came through as Cathie Cleveland (skip), Dave Arnott, Cathy Selzler & Dave Goddard cruised to a 22-10.
The triples, Jon Braun, Graham Miller & Pat Kost joined the winning ranks with a 16-12 win.
Jack Green and Joyce Bolleman might well have had the best reasons for smiles. They played West Van's top duo of Myrle Lawrence and Commonwealth Games bound Tim Mason to a virtual stand-still, losing by only 2 shots, 13-15.
Squad captain, John, noted, "Holding Tim in check was huge for our side. It prevented them from gaining any momentum or positive energy. In Top 10, if you can shut down your opponent's 'big team', you take something away from the whole side. That's what Jack and Joyce did for us."
Kerrisdale's 2nd round opponent is Maple Ridge Tigers. That round of matches will be played at home (phew!) on Friday, June 27th starting at 7:00pm.
