Team Cseke wins Molson Super League title

Adam Cseke's Edward Jones rink defeats the Jeff Richard team in the final of the men's curling season

It came down to the last shot of the season to crown the 2016 Molson Super Curling League champions.

Skip Adam Cseke needed a draw to the four foot in the eighth end to give his Edward Jones rink a 7-6 victory over Jeff Richard (Sunset Ranch) in last week’s season finale at the Kelowna Curling Club.

With Sunset Ranch leading 2-1, Team Cseke took advantage of a miss by the Richard rink to score four in the fourth end for a 5-2 lead.

Richard had chance for four of his own in the fifth but settled for three when a draw came up short for a 5-5 tie.

Tied up 6-6, Team Cseke had the hammer in the eighth end when one of Team Richard’s rocks picked.

That opened the door for the Edward Jones team as Cseke just had enough on the draw to score one for the victory and the Molson Super League title.

The champs are Adam Cseke, Andrew Nerpin, Cam Weir and Doug Levoir.

In the consolation round,  Ashley Furniture (Team Gelowitz) beat Sturgeon Hall (Team Brucker / Ursel) 6-2. The Gelowitz rink stole points in four ends en route to victory.

Team Gelowitz is Garry Gelowitz, Cy Gladdish, Craig MacLeod and Tim McIntosh.
