With one skip, 'doing a Mike' and arriving late the Thirds got underway with the three 'man' Howard Squad being skipped by Julia against the enthusiastic (All were at the ice rink at least 15 minutes before the game) Team Wood. Even though he was early, the skip had misjudged the start time and was still tucking into his soup when the rest of the team were on the ice. After cancelling his main course, he arrived in time to play his first end stones and take an early one shot lead.
Team Howard then rebounded as Mike digested his tea taking the next two ends before the wheels came off. Two BIG ends to Team Wood (and the arrival of Stan) saw the sacking and demotion of the interim skip. The remaining two ends were shared between the rinks.
The final score was recorded as 10 - 4 to the Wood rink.
