Denison White has stunned the league leaders Wonthella Gold to record their first win of the season to reignite the fire for the chasing pack. White came into the game winless after six rounds, though they had shown improvement picking up points in their last two games and pushing Denison Blue all the way. But they were still underdogs against Wonthella, who have lost just one match so far this season and took the opening game 22-18 to put White on the back foot. But White roared back in the second 24-18 as Ian Carlshausen, arguably White’s strongest player this season, led them to a two-shot lead into the final game. The stage was set for a tight finish, but it was anything but as White streamed away 27-14 in the final rink to take the match and their first win of the season. Kim Elliott was an inspired choice to skip for the first time this season as White have now formed an impressive body of work over the past couple of weeks. Geraldton Red pounced on Gold’s falter with a 64-56 win in a closely fought battle with Wonthella Maroon after battling back from a rink down. They took the second rink 22-18 to lead by two and held their nerve in the decider winning 24-18 with Bradley King and Peter Reudavey establishing themselves as two of the finest skips in the league. Wonthella Green also made a charge in a thumping 71-48 win and taking home the full six points with a blowout 32-12 second rink, effectively sewing up the match. Geraldton Gold also enjoyed a clean sweep over Northampton recording a 77-56 victory. It was a closely fought first rink with Northampton pushing Gold 25-22, but it was one-way traffic in the second as Gold went up by 16 shots with a 27-14 rink. Northampton at least ensured the margin didn’t blow out too far with a 25-20 final rink, but they were well beaten on the day. Mullewa joined the top seven melee with a 5-1 comeback win over Dension Blue. Blue looked odds-on to take home an easy win after a 25-14 opening rink gave them an 11-shot buffer heading into the second. They saw their lead erode away after a poor second rink going down 22-13 but they still held a two-shot advantage. But they couldn’t recover, losing the final 23-17 as Mullewa took the rink and the match points with them. It sees Mullewa on 21.50 points just one behind Denison Blue, who in turn are one point behind Wonthella Green on 23.50 points. Wonthella Maroon are just half a point ahead with Geraldton Gold on 26.50, Red on 27 and Wonthella Gold on top with 28.50 despite their loss. There were no upsets in the Women’s division as Wonthella Maroon and Denison Blue recorded wins over Northampton and Geraldton Blue respectively. Northampton did at least take a point in the second rink, but was well off the pace in the other two with 28-12 and 35-9 defeats to lose by 35 shots. Denison Blue had to fight back from 10 shots down after losing the opening rink 26-16, roaring back with a 28-10 second rink before edging the final 20-18.
