Eight games hit the ice on Wednesday night in the Original 16 Cash League at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre and four of those games were decided by one point.

Ralph Courtnage (4-4) stole two in the eighth end to secure a comeback 7-6 win over Wade Gray (2-6) in one of the four one-point games.

Courtnage opened with back-to-back points in the first two ends to take a 2-0 lead, but Gray responded with three in the third and a steal of one in the fourth to move in front 4-2. The two sides traded deuces in the fifth and sixth ends before Courtnage took over late for the win.

Joe Gunnis (3-5) pulled out a 9-8 win over Patrick Ackerman (1-7) thanks to three in the eighth end of a back-and-forth game.

Gunnis score two in the first and led 3-2 after three.  Ackerman then took control with two in the fourth and a steal of two in the fifth, but Gunnis would score three in the sixth and three more in the eighth for the win.

Bob Desjarlais (5-3) also scored late to secure a 5-4 win over Ben Gamble 3-5).  The two teams were tied at 2-2 after five ends, but Gamble score two in the sixth to move in front, but Desjarlais struck back with two in the seventh and one in the eighth.

The Ryan Wenarchuk rink stayed in a tie for first place at 7-1 on the year with a narrow 6-5 win over Donna Ackerman (3-5).

Wenarchuk set the early pace with three in the first and Ackerman responded with singles in the second and third.  Wenarchuk scored one in the fourth to take a 4-2 advantage, but Ackerman tied the game with two in the fifth and went in front with one in the sixth. Wenarchuk was able to tie the game with one in the seventh and stole one in the eighth to pick up the win.

Wenarchuk is tied with the Penny Barker rink for first place after Barker scored three in the seventh to win 7-3 over Joel Jordison, which dropped him to 6-2.
