Doug Young vs. Rob McKinlay
These two teams played the closest game of the night this week.  Rob started off by taking one in the first. Doug was able to take two in the second and leapfrog over Rob.  Rob tied things up in the third. Doug could only get one in the fourth. Rob blanked the fifth and Doug was able to steal the sixth and take a two point lead.  Rob was able to get things set up and took two in the seventh to tie things up going home.  Doug tried to keep things clean in the eighth and it was working out pretty well until Doug got in the hack for his first stone. Doug pushed it a little wide and flashed right past Rob’s rock at the top of the house. Rob raised his stone just behind the T-line leaving Doug with a come around for the win.  Doug’s rock was heading in for the tap when it picked up a little extra curl, wrecking on the guard. Rob steals one and the win.
