It was another busy night at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre on Wednesday night as the Original 16 Cash League returned to the ice for a full eight-game slate.
The Ryan Wenarchuk continues to put together a strong start to the season as they beat the Ben Gamble rink, 7-5, to improve to 6-1. Gamble dropped to 3-4 with the loss.
Wenarchuk held on for the win in a back-and-forth contest. He opened the scoring with a deuce in the first, but Gamble answered back with three in the second.
It was all Wenarchuk after that as he picked up two in the fourth to move back in front 4-3; then added one in the sixth; and they stole two in the seventh to make it 7-2. Gamble added two in the eighth, but could put together enough for the win.
