Jim McKinlay vs. Sheila Young
The corn harvest reduced the McKinlay rink to three players as Jim was riding the combine instead of the more important role as skip of his team. Crawford McKinlay took over the skipping duties which caused some friction on the team because his mom didn’t want to sweep so many rocks on her own. Sheila started with a steal of one in the first and then two more in the second to put Crawford in a bit of a hole. She then added three more in the third to go up 6-0. Crawford though he heard his dad screaming from the fields and picked up his game to take two in the fourth. Sheila missed a draw for 2 in the fifth, but still managed one. Crawford was left with a run back in the sixth, but couldn’t quite make it giving up 4 and prompting the end of the game. Sheila wins 11-2.
