College curlers compete in early bonspiel

Mohawk College curlers headed to the Thornhill Golf and Curling Club Saturday (Nov. 25) for the Seneca Sting Challenge Bonspiel.

The men finished as runners-up, losing their third game 6-3 to Niagara. Earlier, the men downed Humber 6-2 and then defeated Fanshawe 6-1.
The women’s team lost 7-2 to Humber, defeated a rink of alternates 7-6 and lost 6-4 to Fanshawe and finished fifth.
This early-season ‘spiel had a fun element, as the eight end games used an elaborate point scoring system as opposed to the standard curling scoring method.
The Mohawk men’s team was primarily skipped by Jacob Delisle with Tyler Tummon at vice. The front end was rotated each game by Dylan Robertson, Jonathan Boccia, Zac Nicholson and Joseph Iaccino.
The women’s rink was skipped by Hanna Hack and Anne-May D’Souza played third stone. The lead and second positions were the two male curlers who didn’t play for the men’s team for that particular game.
